market data entitlements interfacesPermissioning or authorising market data users is a primary process in managing market data. To avoid double manual entries, INFOmatch incorporates interfaces to all major market data vendors to push data to and pull data from these market data permissioning systems. You are able to synchronise user profiles for both systems and at the same time make sure you are fully compliant with vendors’ compliance rules.

The INFOmatch Entitlements interfaces reduce the workload of the market data administrator dramatically by automating MAC management (moves, additions and cancellations) process in INFOmatch. They simplify reporting data usage to exchanges, as well as allocating costs to the actual consumers of data.

INFOmatch User Defined Interface for Entitlements

The market data community is confronted frequently with product and price changes. One always has to be prepared to find quite a few price changes on your vendor and exchange bills. In addition, your internal organisation has to deal with moves, additions and cancellations (MACs) within the user community. Keeping track of all these changes is very time-consuming and is subject to human error.

In order to automate and streamline this process INFOmatch incorporates the User Defined Interface for Entitlements. This tool allows you to create your own user defined interface for automated imports of entitlement and allocation files (Excel based), for any vendor of your choice. It enables you to update your contracts (including price information and component quantity), map products and users, set start and end dates of allocations and define tax percentages.

This interface makes sure your market data administration automatically matches with all of your vendors’ data profiles. It dramatically reduces the workload by up to 90%, and simplifies internal and external (vendor) reporting.
