Symphony Adds Updated Dow Jones News App

By Laura Burgess

Symphony has taken another step forward with the addition of a revamped Dow Jones News App to its collaboration and workflow platform. The app allows Symphony members to integrate premium news and analysis from Dow Jones into their workflow.

Symphony was established in 2015 to provide a secure messaging service for financial services firms. With open source coding that can be customised using application programming interfaces (APIs), the platform enables open but secure communication between organisations. More recently, Symphony has partnered with data providers to make their content available as applications on the platform. The updated Dow News App is the latest addition.

The Dow Jones app enables Symphony users to access real-time news streaming, a powerful search engine, and instant sharing ability with colleagues. It also provides access to all content from the Dow Jones Institutional Wire, including breaking news from The Wall Street Journal.

Commenting on the addition of the Dow Jones app to Symphony, Edward Roussel, chief innovation officer at Dow Jones, noted that news consumption in financial markets is changing. He suggests news content needs to be highly customisable and shareable, and says that, at Dow Jones, the aim is to facilitate faster decision making by reducing the ‘noise’ of mainstream media consumption.
