FAME aggregates market data, news and financial content from more than 120 third-party and proprietary sources, and provides cleansing, enrichment and analytics capabilities. Pyxis Mobile aggregates FAME data into a variety of its mobile solutions for portfolio managers, analysts, traders, compliance officers and financial advisors. It gives users the ability to check market, historical and reference data in conjunction with their holdings and watch lists, while out of the office or away from their desks.
Adam D. HonorÃ©, senior analyst at Aite Group, said, âWireless technology specific to capital markets business functions continues to build momentum. Institutional money managers are looking for ways to be more effective than having to phone in or e-mail into the office for trading and monitoring the markets. With the proliferation of mobile smart devices, these capabilities add tremendous value beyond e-mail and the occasional web browsing.â
âSunGard is one of the largest and most successful providers of data, software and services in the industry,â said David Sayles, director of partner alliances at Pyxis Mobile. âHaving SunGard provide a vast range of market data for Pyxis Mobile demonstrates the increased importance and reach of wireless applications for the financial services professional.â
