Xenomorph has integrated the Python Open Source scripting language with its TimeScape cross-asset data management platform, allowing developers to take advantage of the language’s fast time to prototype, test and change ideas, as well as its integration with other programming languages including C and C++.
Python has been built into the application programming interface of TimeScape and is available immediately, giving developers access to validated gold copy data, real-time data and analytics that are managed in the platform.
Commenting on the integration of Python with TimeScape, Naj Alavi, managing director of Xenomorph for the Americas, says: Python is a powerful scripting language that is used by a number of Xenomorph’s clients in back-testing trading ideas and prototyping analytics. The integration of Python means gold copy data validated in TimeScape can be accessed in Python. Quants, risk managers, IT and operations staff all have their preferred ways and environments for working with data. Our aim is to open up the benefits of data management to all users and departments, encouraging greater data transparency, higher data quality and lower costs in data use and reuse.”
