Telekurs Financial and Unitek Engineering integrate Market Data Feed (MDF) into Reuters RMDS
Zurich - 9 July 2008
In order to make its broad market data service available via the Reuters platform RMDS, Telekurs Financial now provides an integration service together with its development partner Unitek Engineering. This service is called TRIS (Telekurs RMDS Integration Service), and makes it possible to call up around 3 million actively traded instruments from the Telekurs data universe on existing Reuters RMDS installations.
TRIS bridges the technological differences between the Telekurs and Reuters platforms and displays the Telekurs data in the Reuters data model. In this way, all the terminals or applications connected to the RMDS can be fed with Telekurs data without any adjustments having to be made. Telekurs data can be used in parallel, as an additional, or as an independent back-up source.
With the Market Data Feed (MDF), the information from 850 different data sources is provided in a standard format. Stock exchanges can be readily activated or deactivated by means of authorisations without generating any additional integration work. The data access control system from Reuters (DACS) is also supported by TRIS.
TRIS has been tested with RMDS versions 5 and 6 and can be used immediately.
“We have made TRIS available on a general basis in response to a substantial need in the financial market”, says Mirko Silvestri, Product Manager for Market Data Feed at Telekurs Financial. “We are pleased to have Unitek as an experienced and efficient partner who has known both our market data offering and the needs of our customers for years."
"Unitek has worked on development projects with Telekurs data and interfaces for 20 years. Unitek was able to contribute its vast experience to the partnership in an ideal way. The result is TRIS, a mature and high-performance solution for integrating Telekurs data into Reuters RMDS systems, which has shown good stability in use with Unitek customers since 2001. We are pleased to be working with Telekurs, a company that combines technological expertise, a good data offering, and market proximity for the benefit of customers”, says Hanspeter Canziani, TRIS Product Manager and a partner at Unitek.
