Thomson Reuters Launches DataScope Workflow License for Order Management Systems
Combines technical indicators, pricing and reference data to seamlessly
streamline workflow processes
NEW YORK/LONDON, February 5, 2013 - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source
of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced the
launch of the DataScope Workflow License (DWL). The DataScope Workflow License
combines a series of technical indicators with pricing and reference data,
enabling the investment community to streamline and integrate their data
management and performance strategies.
Phase one ofÂ the DWL enables clients to access a wider and deeper set of value
added content, including a range of technical indicatorsÂ to specifically support
the operation of their Order Management Systems (OMS) for equities, futures and
options. Phase two will extend the capability to include a comprehensive range
of fixed income assets.
"DWL is in response to customer requests to evermore deeply and seamlessly embed
Thomson Reuters rich pricing and reference data more widely into their workflow;
while OMS is the first functional area of the workflow for us to tackle, we plan
to systematically address other key areas of the workflow as part of the DWL
offering," said Debra Walton, managing director, Enterprise Content at Thomson
Reuters. "Clients can license DWL directly from Thomson Reuters or through our
approved third-party distributors.
DWL is delivered via DataScope Select (DSS) and provides full DSS functionality
of universe and data field definition, as well as scheduling via the DSS Web
Interface, FTP or API. Flexibility is another vital function of the product
offering, with the data delivery solution designed to seamlessly fit into a
clients' workflow, with a quick and easy integration process.
"We recognize the challenges faced by the trading & investment communities,"
said Kate Toumazi, global head of front office, Enterprise Content at Thomson
Reuters. "We understand that people are seeking cost effective pricing,
reference as well as technical indicator data to power specific front and middle
office workflows, and our new license is positioned to meet these needs."
The launch of the DataScope Workflow License supports Thomson Reuters vision to
connect and enable the global financial community. It represents a significant
step forward in addressing the workflow needs of both the trading and investment
Technical indicators, which areÂ an integral part of the DWL, capture information

options on futures and 250,000 futures, while enhancing a firm's ability to
track, measure and predict patterns in the equities, futures and options
markets.Â Along with related financial information, they provide clients with
all the content necessary for security master management, asset setup,
enterprise data management and compliance & exposure reporting. These measures
