Product History

The idea for SlashDB was conceived out of Victor’s experience in software consulting for the capital markets industry. SlashDB was created at first only as a solution targeted for master data management for the securities industry. We then realized that it has even greater purpose of being used as a data API (gateway) for web and mobile applications. Since then, SlashDB has been attracting clients in the financial, academic, and publishing industries. Our delivery model is client-centric and allows for custom installations in enterprise data centers, as virtual machines and in the cloud via Amazon Web Services Marketplace and Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
