Exchange Pulse Goes Live with SunGard’s MarketMap to Provide Real-Time, Global Pricing Data

Exchange Pulse, a Web-based source for prices, news and information for the sustainability industry, is using SunGard’s MarketMap (formerly Fame) to provide real-time U.S. and European commodity, currency and equity pricing data to Exchange Pulse’s brokers and individual traders via the company’s Web site.

Exchange Pulse needed a global, real-time data solution that offered the product and geographical coverage that its niche clients required for both simple and sophisticated data viewing and analysis. SunGard’s MarketMap Feed provides real-time, global exchange and market data designed for integration into dynamic applications, user desktops, Web sites, databases and calculation engines. MarketMap Feed helps Exchange Pulse manage multiple data sources and individual datafeeds, as well as deliver custom data specific to the unique needs of each user. In addition, MarketMap provides Exchange Pulse with the ability to integrate data through MarketMap Components, a set of tools for integrating MarketMap’s data into Web sites, Web-based applications, or internal client and server applications.

Jonathan Nutter, chief executive officer at Exchange Pulse, said, “SunGard’s MarketMap gives us the ability to more effectively deliver on our mission: to help our clients spend less time looking for information and more time using it. MarketMap Feed provides the real-time speed that brokers and traders demand, the flexibility to use only the data that we require to maximize cost efficiencies, and the ability to expand our business as we enhance our scope of service offerings.”

Gerry Murphy, president of SunGard’s brokerage and clearance business, said, “Historically, investment banks, portfolio managers and other financial service companies have used MarketMap Feed for pricing data, from the full universe to specific sets of data. Today, MarketMap Feed is stepping in to help a new generation of Web-based companies display and broadcast real-time data on their Web sites while helping to support their business models for growth.”
