PlatformOne™ has a large portfolio of modules designed to connect to other real-time systems. These connectivity modules are primarily used to link a client system to PlatformOne™ so that – for example – a PlatformOne™ feed handler can deliver data to a customer system based on, for example, Thomson Reuters RMDS.
Using the same software, the PlatformOne™ Contribution suite can also source data from the same customer system:
A lot of these connectivity modules are as good as obsolete, as the systems they connect to are no longer in general use. Indeed, a gateway built out of two bi-directional PlatformOne™ connectivity modules linked together has frequently been a valuable tool to ease the migration away from a legacy system:
Our current RMDS connectivity module uses RFA (Robust Foundation API), and is the latest in a long line of modules built on top of SSL and then SFC. We support both Marketlink and OMM formats. We are a member of the Thomson Reuters Developer Community (TRDC).
We also have a bi-directional module that connects to TIB using RendezVous. We are also happy to connect to customer systems that use their own API and are happy to work with your developers to get a real-time connection quickly up and running.
Even though PlatformOne is all about moving data from one place to another as fast as possible in real time, sometimes you need to delay things a little. In that case, you can use our Delayer product to store and forward updates after a specific time interval.
We also have products that connect to monitoring systems such as ITRS Geneos and SNMP which can be used in conjunction with the PlatformOne™ Condition Monitor to deliver real-time alerts on latency and other system issues.
If it’s more personal distribution you’re looking for, we have the Mail Robot product, which constructs e-mails based on the incoming data and sends it out to the members of a mailing list at a pre-specified time.
Finally, our database product DBServer (discussed here in the context of using it as a feed handler) is actually bi-directional: you can also use it to capture real-time data from PlatformOne™ and save the updates in an ADO-compliant database.
