CityVision Market Data Distribution Platform

CityVision enables the collection, aggregation, manipulation, redistribution and presentation of market data in real-time from multiple sources to multiple destinations. Sources can include Vendor feeds (e.g. Thomson Reuters ELEKTRON, Bloomberg BPIPE) exchanges and trading venues as well as data contributions from spreadsheets and internal pricing systems. Destinations include; internal systems, multiple vendors (e.g. Thomson Reuters MLIP2, Bloomberg MPF), users of Excel (remote and local) within the organisation and real-time streaming web updates.

CityVision is low latency, flexible, fully resilient, scalable, compliant and secure, with a full authentication and entitlements system. CityVision is extensible to receive instruments of any asset class, from any number of contributors and to provide controlled re-distribution to unlimited destinations.

CityVision interoperates with other systems (such as Thomson Reuters TREP and exchanges) via existing de-facto standards and interfaces (such as SSL (Marketfeed), RSSL (OMM), FIX and OpenMAMA) and via its own comprehensive APIs. This means it can provide cost effective solutions to integrate with or replace incumbent systems.
