Applications and websites can now get real-time, around-the-clock access to market data from six new securities exchanges located in four continents from Europe to Africa, and from Australia to the Pacific Rim. The new exchanges include the SIX Swiss Exchange, the Irish Stock Exchange, Wiener BÃ¶rse AG, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), the New Zealand Exchange (NZX) and the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX).
âWe continue to see strong growth in demand for global market data delivered via the cloud,â said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite. âIncreasingly, large organizations are coming to us because they have a global presence and need global access to market data from any location, at any time and without heavy data management costs. Many regional firms around the world are also driving demand for market data generated by their local securities exchanges. These customers find on-demand delivery of market data an ideal way to meet their requirements.â
Through Xigniteâs cloud services technology, regional securities exchanges are now able to remove geographic barriers and tap into global demand by offering their market data on an on-demand basis.
âXignite offers a great service for our clients to easily access our market data on-demand,â said Ottavio Gisler, Head of Market Feeds & Data Distribution for SIX Exfeed Ltd., the company founded by the SIX Swiss Exchange to distribute SIX Swiss Exchange market data. âWe are now confident to reach new customers worldwide and provide them with significant advantages in data management costs, procedural efficiency and excellent connectivity.â
Fiona Mackenzie, Head of Market Products for the New Zealand Exchange, echoed Mr. Gislerâs sentiments. âWith growing international demand for NZX market data driven by the imminent launch of new markets and products, the Xignite offering extends the list of market data vendors distributing NZX data, which is an encouraging sign and clear indication of interest in the NZX initiatives.â
Over 750 firmsâincluding more than 250 global companiesâcurrently use Xigniteâs market data cloud to get instant access to market data over the Internet using on-demand web services. Xignite handles all of the data management for customers, freeing them to focus their time and resources on their core applications rather than on hardware, software, networking equipment and other technology infrastructure.
