Financial institutions around the world rely on comprehensive management services, especially feeds data for internal operations and external communication. Through its unique open market data platform, the Market Data Gateway, Interactive Data has the ability to harmonize data from various content suppliers. This platform stores, distributes, displays and arranges the market information in a coherent data model.
Through its PrimeContent offering, Interactive Data provides a set of services that are designed to meet various data management challenges, such as the contribution and dissemination of data to other market members or the availability of data for historical data analysis.
One component of PrimeContent is Contribution Suite, a service for efficiently disseminating data feeds and datastreams and making them available for various services or applications from third parties or from within a financial information system provided by Interactive Data.
PrimeContent provides customers with tailored subscriptions to the delivery of files with reference data, analytical data and historical price data. Both file format and delivery mode can be customized to the customer’s requirements. It is also possible to harmonize formats of proprietary data via the Market Data Gateway.
The PrimeContent services include:
A multi-contribution system for streaming data. Incoming data (i.e. feeds, ftp files, XML) can be imported automatically into Contribution Suite, processed into standardized formats and exported in various vendor protocols.
Proprietary data that is to be integrated seamlessly into a PrimePortal, PrimeDeveloper or PrimeTerminal solution can also be imported via Contribution Suite. This allows for the creation of unique information systems with the possibility to manage and access external and internal data up to a single user level.
