Helps Cut Costs and Complexity in Creating Fully Customised Financial Information Systems for Multi-Channel Communications.
Interactive Data Corporation, a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, has launched a new version of Web Toolkit that features advanced capabilities for fast, easy design and development of fully customised financial information systems for multiple channels, including mobile devices.
The advanced version of Web Toolkit provides additional flexibility in the page design process, enabling users to define their own distinctive, individual grid layout. Content is automatically formatted to fit a defined grid and new web pages can be easily be added to an existing portal with no additional synchronisation required.
“Web Toolkit is designed to support the latest integration environments and meet current standards of service certification and security,” said Carsten Dirks, global managing director of Wealth Management Products. “With its lean Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) approach, it offers a solid foundation for clients’ mobile and cloud computing strategies. With Web Toolkit, a firm can simply and cost-effectively create a strong brand identity, helping it to stand out in the highly competitive, global marketplace.”
Part of Interactive Data’s PrimeDeveloperSM product range, Web Toolkit comprises a range of modules that can be flexibly tailored to customer requirements. It is integrated with Interactive Data’s Market Data Gateway, designed to allow users to deploy comprehensive applications without the need to provide dedicated hardware and maintenance capabilities. Following an initial set-up, no further downloads or installations are necessary to use Web Toolkit, helping to reduce complexity as well as infrastructure and operational costs.
The platform provides access to a wide range of reference and master data, news and contributed data, delivered in real time, end-of-day or delayed, as well as a comprehensive set of analytical tools. Other features include the option to seamlessly integrate proprietary data, as well as user-based data permissioning.
Web Toolkit uses modern web technologies, such as AJAX and open-source PHP solutions, to develop software within a professional technical environment.
