3d Innovations, the data management consultancy specialising in market, reference and derived/computational data, today launched the Profiler Integra toolset that enables Profiler's comparative market data sets to be integrated within third-party and in-house applications.
An extension of 3di's Profiler solution, Profiler Integra enables organizations to evaluate their business requirements against more than 1,800 data products and 700 vendors of enterprise market data.
Driven by client requirements for improved integration with market data inventory systems (FITS, MDM, InfoMatch, etc.), 3di has evolved Profiler Integra to 'reach out' to procurement and enterprise research - as well as data management - groups with facilities to integrate into intranets and other in-house decision support and presentation portals.
Stephen Veasey, CEO, 3d Innovations, comments: "We have had prototypes of Profiler working with the major MDS inventory tools for some time. The package we have developed now includes a fully functional Web-services API, multi-format output and XML definition and a white labelled version of our Content Management System Publisher. Publisher allows our clients to manage internal application and data services definitions alongside Profiler's external services surveillance".
Joshua Leitner, Director of Business Development at FITS vendor, The Roberts Group, adds: "TRG is excited to have worked with 3di to ensure FITS user firms are amongst the first to make use of the Profiler Integra tools. Above and beyond the capabilities of FITS and Profiler on its own, we believe our shared clients will benefit from the enriched workflow that FITS and Profiler create through the integrated solution."
Profiler provides data management professionals with product and service summaries of the industry's key market and reference data providers, including: asset and sector coverage, product categories, strengths & weaknesses, alternative and competitive products. Users can compare and contrast competing vendors and services and they can add notes for other applications, vendors and services outside of the Profiler listings. Profiler Integra facilitates publishing onto a company-wide portal, providing an inin-hoouse knowledge and procurement info-base along client defined lines.Profiler supports export to Word, Excel, PDF and general text formats, with Profiler Integra now extending the output options to BIG data environments.
