StreamBase today announced that it has integrated a real-time streaming feed from Morningstar (NASDAQ: MORN), a leading provider of independent investment research, into its Complex Event Processing (CEP) platform.
This development will provide their mutual customers with enhanced access to global investment information across multiple asset classes.
Customers will be able to integrate a wide range of data, including stocks, indexes, foreign exchange (FX), derivatives, and research analysis, into a consolidated view for further customization. Adam Honoré, Research Director at Aite Group comments: "While market participants are considering a variety of solutions to reduce the latency issues in their trading systems, the flexibility of being able to react to the dynamic market conditions is the primary requirement. We expect to see more hedge funds and traditional asset managers invest in customizable solutions and look into new opportunities."
"This partnership strengthens our commitment to providing valuable information to meet our customers' needs in a wider range of applications," said Gordon Bloor, CEO of Morningstar's Real-Time Data business. "Through this partnership we will be able to offer our mutual clients a total solution offering Complex Event Processing powered by a high quality real-time data feed."
"We are seeing more sophisticated buy-side firms adopt StreamBase CEP to evolve and expand their investment strategies," said Richard Tibbetts, CTO at StreamBase. "Our goal is to increase our customers' profitability with an extensible platform that can substantially enhance the performance of their trading infrastructures, also with the capability of rapidly changing and managing their systems."
