Market Data Spend: Under Control
Financial institutions find it increasingly difficult to control the cost and usage of market data. Data enters the firm from multiple data vendors who each have their own commercial models and it is very difficult for companies to traceback who is internal data consumer for charge back purposes or simply to make sure that costs do not spiral out of control. To further complicate matters, data vendors often have legal frameworks that dictate how data can be used and distributed internally (and externally) and companies are left with the burden of identifying how data flows through their systems and make sure they remain compliant.
XMon Static Data is an advanced, fully managed platform that addresses cost and compliance challenges institutions face when managing data from external providers and internal data consumers.
Monitor market data usage
XMon Static Data tracks in real-time:
- Data requested from external data vendors: XMon monitors data requests from external providers and tracks every single data request.
- Data flowing between internal applications: XMon monitors data flowing between internal systems
- Data exiting the firm: XMon monitors data leaving the firm, for example, in the form of reports or customer exports.
Every data request in the firm is identified and recorded. This improves transparency, accountability and is the basis for reducing and optimising costs.
Real-time market data usage reporting
Every data request is visible in real-time in the request dashboard. If a request has an associated cost model, its cost is calculated and displayed in the dashboard.
Market Data Cost Control
Once data consumers and data requests are identified. XMon can be configured to control data requests, to ensure they are compliant or simply to ensure that no rogue data request spikes the data bill.
