•   real-time market-data sources via BCC Group’s cloud-native ONE Solution, a solution that provides a single interface to ICE, Bloomberg, Morningstar, Refinitiv and other exchanges and data providers, ready to be leveraged by terminals, desktop applications, analytics, calculations, correlation, regulatory, and / or contribution requirements all fully entitled via the single ONE API.

In addition, Glue42 will leverage NORMAN & SONS’ expertise to ensure UX and UI designs as well as the desktop implementation itself are delivered in a quick and reliable manner that aligns with customers’ business goals.

“We’re at the confluence of adopting industry standards and providing a better end user experience,” said James Wooster, COO, Glue42. “As big proponents of building towards a vendor-agnostic financial desktop, leveraging FDC3 to integrate our platform with these new partners is a major step forward in this pursuit – one that enables firms to create a seamless user experience across applications of any type.”

“Interop goes beyond JavaScript and simple data sources,” he continued. “With our partners we can further reduce the number of manual steps traders and wealth managers need to perform and provide better insights. Don’t throw away what you can integrate.”

Danielle Nagler, CEO and founder, Adaptable Tools, says, “We couldn’t be happier with the ease with which we were able to integrate the Adaptable Blotter with Glue42 into applications of any type. Firms can now connect the Adaptable Blotter to any JavaScript, .NET, Java, VB/COM enterprise application along with a host of third-party platforms and products including Bloomberg, Refinitiv, Salesforce and Excel. This capability will help accelerate the roll-out of fully customizable DataGrids across both legacy and new desktop environments.”

Mauricio Gonzalez Evans, CEO, BCC Group, says, “Market participants have for too long been waiting for an open solution that provides resilient and entitled distribution of streaming real-time and reference data over a single API. With our joint offering available in the cloud, on-premises or as a hybrid deployment, customers will be able to reinvent their market data world from a commercial and technical perspective. Glue42 couldn’t have made this any easier for us.”

Graeme Harker, founder, NORMAN & SONS, says, “Glue42 is a mature and proven interoperability platform that helps our customers create connected, cross-application enterprise solutions without having to re-develop legacy desktop applications from scratch. As our customers are increasingly demanding this type of experience across their desktops and smart devices, we can now lead the way with user-centric interop without breaking the bank.”
