Open architecture

TimeScape’s architecture has been designed from the outset to be open so that organisations can utilise its capabilities to meet their specific business needs. This is achieved by providing rich application programming interfaces (APIs) for accessing the system from third party applications such as Microsoft Excel, MATLAB or the Client’s own internal applications and web services. TimeScape also provides software development kits (SDKs) to enable clients to extend the system’s internal capabilities in the area of data feed connectivity, analytics, pricing and task functionality, linking to data vendors such as Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters, and to model vendors such as Numerix and Monis. These powerful server-side SDKs are often used by organisations wishing to add their own proprietary analytical methodologies or connections to other systems and databases.
