ShareCompany came with the challenge
To secure their market position and deliver new products and features faster, our client needed to increase their development capabilities. Intellias took over all of the frontend and part of the backend development tasks for their financial data management system (DMS). Hosted by our client, this system provides banks and financial institutions with access to real-time stock quotes, market information, and financial news from a multisource database via a secure RESTful API. The database content is supplied by some of the world’s key financial data vendors – FactSet, Lipper, IDC, and Royal Bank of Scotland.
The additional challenge that the client needed to overcome was the availability of necessary expertise on the local talent market, so the choice of an outsourcing capacity was more than natural. Intellias location and cultural proximity together with a deep knowledge of technology stack have played a decisive role.
Intellias developed the financial data management software
The client’s solution is covering design, development, implementation, and hosting of high-end financial data. A collected volume of financial data is converted into comprehensible information that is precisely tailored to the needs of organizations and end-users. The data management system enhances the effect of the existing internal communication mix within organizations. It includes a user-friendly CMS for placing internal messages and simply linking them to existing business applications that include potentially necessary data. The system allows enterprises or institution to consolidate its financial data, maintain compliance with assigned rules, and create comprehensive financial reports.
Intellias developed a top-notch data management system that helps financial institutions receive real-time stock quotes, market data, and company news from a multisource database via a secure RESTful API. It also lets customers securely store their own proprietary data with the option to verify its completeness and accuracy. This DMS solution currently processes 400,000 records per second, though our client’s ambition is to increase that number to one million.

We achieved great results together
Our long-term partnership has helped our client expand their business offerings, enhance financial market value proposition for data management, and acquire new clients, including several reputable Dutch banks. Often these clients were flooded with market data from decentralized sources, ranging from information about investment products to data on risk management systems. This leads to high costs and many questions about the value of this data. The data management system saves customers a lot of time, effort and costs by taking, storing, processing and distributing large quantities of market data from various sources to the right applications, systems, and processes. In such a way, the solution helps decentralize data and transform it into usable insights.
