Hosted by BuySide Technology Magazine, the BSTAs recognise leading technologies and vendors in their areas of expertise through an auditable and transparent methodology, underpinned by the input and experience of six buyside-focused technology consultants: Aite Group, Celent, Citisoft, Cutter Associates, Investit and Knadel. This year the judging panel received in excess of 120 entries for 18 award categories.
The BSTAs are open to all technology firms irrespective of size, location, or ownership. According to the judging panel: âThe compelling depth and breadth of RIMESâ data service made it the clear winnerâ.
Christian Fauvelais, Chief Executive Officer and Co-President of RIMES Technologies commented: âWe are delighted to have won this Award three years in a row. RIMES has continued to grow in 2009: the RIMES SmartFilesâ ongoing development program has progressed throughout the year to ensure that the service continues to stay close to our clientsâ evolving requirements. With their feedback in mind last March we launched Barra Performance on RIMES (BPR) in conjunction with MSCI Barra. BPR fills a gap in the market by providing portfolio analysis teams with a performance attribution platform already preloaded with high quality benchmark data. This Award reinforces our pledge to empower our clients with tools which improve their productivity and performance.â
