Thomson Reuters has launched its next generation developer platform for the Thomson Reuters Developer Community, continuing its commitment to be a leader in promoting open technologies, collaboration and innovation.
The Thomson Reuters Developer Community Portal is an enhanced developer experience, designed and built by developers for developers to meet ongoing business challenges.
With over 20,000 external developers using APIs across all Thomson Reuters business units, the Developer Community enables them to create innovative solutions using the Thomson Reuters open platform, consuming analytical content, products, and tools. The community promotes communication amongst developers through actively moderated Q&A forums, access to developer experts globally and a developer events program, both online and offline. The Developer Community spans the entirety of Thomson Reuters products and business segments.
“Through the Developer Community and our open platforms, Thomson Reuters fosters a collaborative environment that drives more efficient, effective, and innovative solutions for both our clients and their customers” said Debra Walton, chief product and content officer, Thomson Reuters. “Businesses must be open and adaptable in their use of data and technology to thrive in a constantly changing technological environment. Developers are a critical part of the solution. By offering the right technologies and the right data over an open system, we are making it easier for developers to do their jobs and generate value for their organizations.”
The Developer Community portal offers a single location where customers, partners and developers from across the FinTech industry can come to discover the tools, documentation, sample code, learning materials and community Q&A forums to help them work effectively and get the results they need from Thomson Reuters APIs, SDKs, tools, data and capabilities. The developer advocacy function, backed by a global group of experts, engages directly with customers and developers to drive innovation. The launch of Developer Community Platform will benefit Thomson Reuters customer and partner ecosystem, accelerating innovation and business value.
The Developer Community is just one of several ways Thomson Reuters is bringing the FinTech community together and fostering innovation. For example, App Studio - Eikon’s third party development suite, enables clients and vendors to embed their applications, content and work flows into Thomson Reuters Eikon, creating an integrated end-to-end solution.
