SunGard is combining its Fame and MarketMap real-time market data solutions under the MarketMap brand to provide customers with a comprehensive suite of global, multi-asset information services. MarketMap is a market data, analysis and information services display terminal. Fame’s real-time solutions include global data feeds, components and alerts for consumption and integration with a range of applications. By uniting the data sources and infrastructures of both products, SunGard can offer customers a single relationship through which they can obtain a suite of global, real-time data and tools.
SunGard will continue to offer Fame Software for time series data management and related functions under the Fame brand.
MarketMap provides customers with a simplified framework, in a SaaS* environment, for the rapid delivery of content to internal consumers and clients. MarketMap’s feeds and other tools help improve efficiencies by offering easy integration into firms’ trading engines, Web portals, back-office systems and other applications. The terminal also provides usage monitoring to help control data costs.
Gerry Murphy, president of SunGard’s brokerage & clearance business, said, “Now that Fame’s real-time data, alerts and components are united with MarketMap, customers can access the global data they require alongside tools that can help them increase transparency into market data consumption and manage their data spend accordingly.”
