New York and London, 11 May 2005 – Gissing Software, solution specialists for the capture, distribution, and manipulation of real-time market data, today announced its strategy for RealtimeXL .NET functionality at DWT London. Following the successful launch of RealtimeXL in the USA in March 2005, Gissing are also showcasing the real-time pricing tool for the first time in the UK at the event.

.NET is a feature rich development environment which is rapidly becoming the platform of choice for many banks and financial institutions. RealtimeXL is designed for high efficiency handling of real-time data in Microsoft Excel and custom applications and now provides support for developers writing applications in Microsoft's .NET environment.

Through the use of simple RealtimeXL .NET objects, application developers using languages such as Visual Basic and C# can take advantage of RealtimeXL's advanced market data engine and cache technology. This enables the retrieval, publication and management of multiple market data sources within applications without any need to understand the complexity of the underlying market data platform APIs. This leaves the developers free to focus on the look and feel and functionality of the applications, significantly shortens development timescales and improves product quality. Clients can in turn react to market demand more rapidly.

Richard Gissing, CTO, Gissing Software says; "We have long-term development plans in place to ensure RealtimeXL will always be able to exceed market needs and adapt to changes to market data platforms and Microsoft environments. Part of this strategy is the new ReatimeXL .NET functionality along with plans to support multiple data sources including Bloomberg and our multi-contribution system, ConteX MCS."

Richard Gissing will also be presenting ‘Real-time Data Spreadsheets: Are you being served?’ at 10.30am in the Upper Sugar Room. This session will explore the needs of users of real-time spreadsheets in banks and broking operations, and how these can be met with RealtimeXL. DWT London is taking place at The Brewery, Chiswell Street.
