Gonet&Cie automates S&P Ratings' updates with S&P Capital IQ's XpressFeed and AIM Software

VIENNA, LONDON and NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Swiss private bank Gonet&Cie has automated S&P Ratings' updates through its enterprise data platform – managed by AIM software – by adding XpressFeed, a powerful data feed management solution from S&P Capital IQ, a leading provider of multi-asset class research, data and analytics.

Responding to the increasing pace of ratings changes in recent years, Gonet&Cie has become the first European firm to automate S&P Ratings' updates through XpressFeed, which itself added the full universe of S&P's credit ratings in June. This addition is available alongside comprehensive fundamental and qualitative data for public and private firms, as well as S&P Dow Jones Indices data and S&P Capital IQ Estimates, a standardized database of global, real-time financial forecasting measures.

"The addition of S&P Ratings content into XpressFeed is part of a continual process to provide clients with seamless access to the useful and timely, cross asset class information that is necessary to make important financial decisions," says Roger Fahy, Senior Director of Product and Content at S&P Capital IQ.

"The latest version of XpressFeed gives quantitative investors the opportunity to examine over 50 years of correlated fundamental and ratings data in a way that was previously impossible," adds Rui Carvalho, Managing Director at S&P Capital IQ.  

AIM Software, the leading provider of data management solutions for the financial industry, provides a standard GAIN package for SunGard APSYS users – such as Gonet&Cie – aiming at increasing the efficiency of data management. Used by more than 20 APSYS users, GAIN enables firms to automate the integration of a range of data feeds and now includes a standard interface with XpressFeed.

"We have been using GAIN for many years to automate the integration of data feeds into APSYS," says Laurent Lolies, IT Manager at Gonet&Cie. "We naturally asked if AIM Software could enable us access to XpressFeed."

"The ability of GAIN to plug-in new data sources extremely quickly made it very easy to connect to XpressFeed, with the possibility to propagate the rating changes to APSYS as soon as it appears in the S&P database," says Christian Trnka, Product Manager at AIM Software.

"Keeping pace with ratings changes brings immediate value to institutions using APSYS: with instrument ratings and issuer ratings directly loaded into their APSYS system, investment decisions can be taken immediately. We can now provide XpressFeed connectivity to our community of APSYS customers in a record time," says Martin Buchberger, Head of Product Management at AIM Software.

"Using GAIN, our customers have the choice to import S&P's credit ratings via the Ambit APSYS Import Interface 'Security Update' or via SQL," adds Trnka.

"Now that the interface is live, Gonet&Cie will be able to gradually benefit from the rich data content brought over XpressFeed, as this new offering from S&P Capital IQ is extending very quickly," concludes Buchberger.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Digital innovation is the next big wave of business transformation based on digital technologies of which IoT and Big Data are key components, For example: Business boundary innovation is a challenge to excavate third-party business value using IoT and BigData, like Nest Business structure innovation may propose re-building business structure from scratch, as Uber does in the taxicab industry The social model innovation is also a big challenge to the new social architecture with the design fr...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.
