Systems Integration

Sinara are experts in integrating financial market data systems, providing the software and skills that transform individual data sources and software components (provided by Sinara or third parties) into a complete system.

Sinara supplies project teams or individual specialists to work with clients on their Market Data projects. Our teams can make use of Sinara’s financial market data software products, all based on open systems and standard technologies. By engaging with Sinara, clients are tapping into over 100 man-years of market data systems expertise across many asset classes (equities, derivatives, metals, FX, etc).

Analysis – Our experts work with your market data and IT teams to understand the business requirements and specify how existing and new software components can be used to deliver the desired system.

Data Integration – Market Data is provided by Vendors in a number of different forms, from simple bulk file transfers to more sophisticated and structured data products. Sinara has existing feed handlers, APIs and developer toolkits to process and integrate data delivered via IP, XML, FIX, ftp transfer, etc. Our software handles everything from streaming real-time data and news to slow-moving Fundamental data. The use of pre-built software enables rapid integration with 3rd party, in-house and new applications.

Database Design – Sinara builds databases and access mechanisms to provide clients with a market data repository or data warehouse that is secure, easy to access and responsive. Our databases link asset classes and news, and can be extended to include new data types. Database designs may need to be flexible to support multiple applications or optimised for individual applications such as Transaction Cost Analysis, Portfolio valuation or even back-testing for algo trading.

Support and Enhancement – Clients’ data requirements change over time, or vendors change and enhance their content. Sinara offers a range of support options to keep systems running and provide software changes to respond to these changing needs.
