Interactive Data Corporation (NYSE: IDC), a leading provider of financial market data, analytics and related solutions, today announced that its Managed Solutions business now offers a JavaScript application programming interface (API), which provides developers with access to a powerful market data platform that standardises a wide range of global data sources.

The JavaScript API is designed to support current trends in web development such as frequently-updated websites based on asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX).

The JavaScript API is available through Interactive Data's PrimeDeveloper service, which offers IT departments and software firms a range of tools to develop new or expand existing websites quickly and efficiently. The interface provides real-time, delayed or end-of-day access to a wide range of international financial information, including securities pricing, company and capital markets data, as well as news. Intelligent analytical functions enable charting, searches, rankings and alerts. Both push-based and pull-based data delivery is possible.

"With the new JavaScript API, our clients can develop even more flexible web applications with increased functionality and enhanced content," said Carsten Dirks, managing director of Interactive Data's Managed Solutions business. "We work with many of the world's largest banks, mutual and investment fund companies, stock exchanges and financial websites to help them differentiate themselves in the marketplace, respond efficiently to client needs, optimise workflows and lower operating costs."

Interactive Data offers customised and hosted solutions based on its fast and flexible market data platform, which standardises structured and unstructured market data from around 200 global content suppliers, as well as proprietary data. In addition to the new JavaScript API, interfaces for PHP, .NET and Java programming languages are also available.
