ReferenceDataFactory (RDF) has added support for SIX Telekurs’ flagship securities reference data service, Valordata Feed (VDF), with the launch of its RDF Adaptive Client Technology for the data feed. Gerry Marsh, managing director of RDF, explains that the addition of the security master reference data, corporate actions and valuation pricing data feed is part of the vendor’s aim to provide out of the box reference data integration solutions.
“By preserving the data linkages inherent in VDF, we’ve ensured that customers retain the full benefit of the structure and encoding unique to SIX Telekurs data service,” says Marsh. “These data linkages are critical for the holistic view, which is crucial to an effective data management processing chain.” Barry Raskin, president of SIX Telekurs USA, adds: “RDF is a lightweight solution based on the principles of service oriented architecture. As such, it gives our clients a way to integrate our data in just weeks. RDF provides a mechanism to take total advantage of the rich data offering in VDF – either in phases or as a complete security master solution. And because data integration isn’t an issue, the cost of acquisition and ownership are reasonable.” In January, RDF demerged from LakeFront Data in order to focus on its own strategic direction as a technology vendor. This new functionality is part of that drive to improve its client offering in the highly competitive reference data management vendor environment.
