With so many different types of data, platforms, and devices to contend with in the financial services industry, it’s no wonder that JavaScript frameworks and libraries have become vital shortcuts for web development teams of all sizes. Financial services encompass everything from trading activity, to banking, to accounting, financial planning, and a lot more, so it's more important than ever for web development teams to find efficient and scalable ways to present the data produced from this financial activity.

As data complexity increases across various financial sectors, so does the demand for tools that can keep up with visualizing it. This is especially true for the charts, diagrams, and infographics that help to visually convey that data both internally and externally. It’s no longer enough to produce static data visualizations that look good — they must also be interactive and dynamic to reflect the nature of the data they’re representing.

For example, if you want to visualize data points at different time intervals, or want to isolate or highlight a specific chunk of data in an otherwise large dataset via zooming, or want to include a live-feed of real-time data, you’ll need a tool that produces more than just flattened chart renderings. This is where JavaScript libraries like ZingChart can make all the difference in your web development workflow by making it easy to produce interactive, dynamic data visualizations quickly.

ZingChart is a well-established, US-based charting library that has been used by companies like Adobe, Nasdaq, Fidelity Investments, K&H Bank, ING Bank, and London Stock Exchange. It gives web developers the power to create highly interactive and responsive charts, diagrams, and infographics for their apps and websites with only a few lines of code. With over 35 chart-types and modules, including chord, pareto, and gauge chart types, ZingChart is uniquely suited to help developers visualize a wide range of financial data.
