LONDON, 14 October 2015 – OTAS Technologies has today announced the availability of its advanced market intelligence and analytics directly inside Thomson Reuters Eikon. Two applications, OTAS Core Summary and OTAS Microstructure have been integrated to provide users with immediate access to OTAS analytics and visualization tools for supporting trading, risk and portfolio management from within their Eikon workflow.
Tom Doris, CEO of OTAS Technologies said, “OTAS is continually working to simplify life for our clients while ensuring they have access to the intelligence they need to make better trading decisions. One of the ways we do this is by keeping our platform open and easy to integrate with existing systems. The integration and availability of OTAS market leading intelligence and analytics in Thomson Reuters Eikon is another example of how we are achieving this goal.”
The OTAS apps were built using App Studio in Eikon, Eikon’s third party app development suite. The OTAS apps are tightly integrated with Eikon creating a seamless user experience and efficient workflow. Unlike firms with legacy architecture, OTAS is able to quickly and easily integrate with customers’ existing systems to drive a smoother transition between applications, and a more streamlined trade workflow. Combining Eikon’s news, market data and analytical tools and OTAS’ powerful data analytics and market intelligence, OTAS’ clients can leverage real-time market insight and analysis for trade decision support.
Albert Lojko, Global Head of Desktop at Thomson Reuters said: “Promoting openness and collaboration within Eikon is one of the primary reasons we created App Studio, and we’re thrilled that companies like OTAS are seeing the possibilities and creating ways to streamline workflow for our joint customers.”
OTAS Core Summary provides equity market analytics to portfolio managers and traders facilitating greater visibility into relevant signals and risk forecasts for trades. OTAS Microstructure provides live visual analysis of market events, enabling traders to adjust their strategies based on real-time market conditions and movements. Both applications are available now to use in Eikon.
