IS.Slider users receive Dow Jones News in vendor-certified quality

Interactive Data Managed Solutions, an Interactive Data (NYSE: IDC) business and a leading provider and operator of customised financial information systems, has been awarded Bronze status within the Dow Jones Certification Programme. Customers of Interactive Data Managed Solutions’ financial terminal IS.Slider can now receive news from Dow Jones in vendor-certified quality and with additional functionalities. Users may now be able to perform news searches faster and more easily. They can also customise the news display. Interactive Data Managed Solutions plans to further this cooperation with Dow Jones Newswires to additional certification levels.

To qualify for Bronze status, IS.Slider had to meet several technical requirements specified by Dow Jones such as accurately displaying Dow Jones headline characteristics, highlighting key market information, correct chaining of multi-part news stories and implementing a link to Dow Jones News Plus. Additionally, the financial terminals had to provide quick searches by instrument or code. IS.Slider offers Dow Jones News through its various, country-specific product bundles, as well as options for additional subscription-based Dow Jones News services.


IS.Slider, Interactive Data Managed Solutions’ customisable financial terminal can be tailored specifically for investment, advisory-, and sales processes in private banking and asset management. Because the data can be permissioned and billed by the individual user, IS.Slider allows for flexible and targeted deployment.
