PolarLake, CounterpartyLink Forge Alliance as PolarLake Adds Business Analyst Integration

Provider of reference data distribution products PolarLake and client and legal entity data specialist CounterpartyLink have entered into an alliance with the aim of better meeting the needs of mutual clients and prospects. John Randles, CEO of PolarLake, says while the PolarLake RDD (Reference Data Distribution) product “works with all forms of reference data”, the vendor is “seeing much interest in legal entity and counterparty data in support of regulatory compliance and risk”. He adds: “PolarLake RDD does not normally interface directly with data feeds, but is more commonly placed between a golden copy repository and the downstream consumers. However, we are keen to develop our relationships with all the data vendors as ultimately we are working with their data, and we are ensuring that it gets to the right place, at the right time, and in the right format.”

Separately, PolarLake has made some enhancements around business rules capture for PolarLake RDD. The most important component for improved usability of the product is the new Business Analyst Integration Workbench, the Dublin-based vendor says. It offers spreadsheet-like usability with underlying integration rules, validations, runtime, reporting and operations support. It also enables template generation for downstream systems, what if? analysis and scenario analysis for rule mining, rule dependency management, internet-style rule search, Excel import and export facilities and complete metadata management for RDD, PolarLake says.
