TickSmith Adds File Inventory Module to Its Award-Winning Data Management Platform



New functionality simplifies management and distribution of millions of files for financial institutions including hedge funds, banks, dealers and exchanges.

MONTREAL – July 11, 2016 – TickSmith’s TickVault* Platform has been enhanced with File Inventory, a module for managing and distributing large quantities of data files from multiple sources.

Large financial data producers and consumers such as exchanges and trading groups already use TickVault* to accumulate, centralize, analyze and distribute Terabytes and Petabytes of brokerage data. In its standard configuration, TickVault* normalizes and combines data from various sources, runs out-of-the box and custom analytics and provides web storefronts and self-service portals to employees and users as well as seamless integration with in-house applications through Rest APIs.

“While working with stock exchanges and hedge funds to manage trade, quote, and reference data with TickVault*, we realized that many of our customers were struggling with millions of accumulated files,” said Tony Bussieres, SVP Development of TickSmith.

“TickVault’s* workflow, entitlements and distribution capabilities have been leveraged to address a problem that literally keeps growing in many financial institutions,” said Francis Wenzel, CEO of TickSmith. “The File Inventory module now makes it easy for users and applications to explore, request and access this valuable content.”

Part of the TickVault* Platform, File Inventory works with files on servers, SANs and storage on cloud such as S3. The module inventories and catalogues files to create file profiles. Content can be searched, subscribed to, and accessed via web interfaces and APIs. Delivered as a complete solution, File Inventory is installed in a client’s data center or AWS instance.
