Xenomorph continues to build out its TimeScape risk analysis and data management platform with the integration of Aqumin’s AlphaVision visual data landscape environment. The company has offered TimeScape with integrated data charts and 3D graphs for about 18 months, but in search of a more sophisticated visual data solution for large, real-time datasets, looked across the market before selecting Aqumin and AlphaVision.
AlphaVision allows users to define, analyse and store data as interactive 3D landscapes based on multi-sourced data and analytics in TimeScape. Points or regions of particular interest in large, multi-dimensional datasets can be quickly identified and, using the AlphaVision software developer’s kit, users can drill down from points on a landscape to further visual landscapes, or return to the relevant dataset in TimeScape.
Brian Sentance, CEO at Xenomorph, explains: “We selected AlphaVision from the solutions we looked at because it is more complementary to the existing charting and 3D graphs we have in TimeScape. It can be used to look at and search large volumes of data and can provide insight into trading opportunities, risk and data quality. A user can start with a large instrument universe and quickly zoom in to a particular instrument. The user can then select to see further visualisations along any metric of interest.”
Xenomorph has linked its QL+ query language to the visual data landscapes it has defined in AlphaVision. These cover areas including data quality, index analysis, credits and spreads, and performance attribution and price behaviour during market crashes, but it is also possible for users to customise the software.
Michael Zeitlin, CEO at Aqumin, comments: “In a time when regulatory and compliance requirements are driving clients to consume and manage more and more data, the combination of TimeScape with the visual landscape capabilities of AlphaVision enables clients to identify data issues and opportunities faster than before.”
AlphaVision is embedded in TimeScape and is available immediately as an additional analysis application for users of the Xenomorph analysis and data management platform.
