Millbrook, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2014
17a-4 has released the latest version of their DataParser for Reuters Eikon software to support Thompson Reuters Eikon Messenger product. Messenger connects financial professionals and allows them to share messages, live data, charts and analytics via a highly secure network. 17a-4’s DataParser software is used to manage various sources of data (Cisco Jabber, Microsoft Lync, Bloomberg etc.) in order to apply formatting that corresponds with an email archive. This allows clients to leverage the archive already in place and create a single point of compliance management, discovery and supervisory procedures.
This latest release of the DataParser for Reuters Eikon module supports Messenger. The DataParser downloads the external feed from Messenger and integrates the chat data, with attachments, into an email format for archival ingestion. Messenger’s captured data includes all types of user-generated content including; chat rooms, intra- and inter- company messages, files, forms, images and screenshots. Messenger works across multiple chat platforms (Yahoo, AOL, Google) and, in conjunction with Markit technology, that includes chat platforms (Microsoft Lync, IBM Sametime). The DataParser tracks and validates downloaded data, as well as archives transcripts of source data. The export to an archive system can be in standard EML file format or in the Microsoft Envelope Journal format, and delivered via Exchange Web Services or SMTP.
The DataParser is a lightweight, middle-ware product that integrates easily into many different archive architectures and configurations. Clients can leverage the DataParser in conjunction with their archive, whether in house or hosted, to become compliant with SEC, FINRA or corporate policy and procedure.
“Having developed many of these type interfaces for our clients,” offers Curt Robinson, Chief Technology Officer, “we have an architecture that allows us to very quickly create a new module customized for the data source, while creating a consistent email or XML record that may be ingested into any archive. In addition, we know the unique requirements of the major archive vendors so that the type / sub-type of a message (i.e. Lync / Groupchat or SharePoint / blog post) can be incorporated into the metadata of the message for easy search and production. Both large financial institutions and archive vendors have asked us to develop interfaces which are necessary for a client from both a compliance and an information governance perspective.”
