MetaFluent Add-In for Excel. A streamlined, pure-RTD approach to consuming and publishing dynamic data within the Excel container. The MetaFluent Add-In for Excel provides higher performance, better compatibility and a smaller footprint than competing solutions. Available now.

MetaFluent Excel VBA SDK. A programming interface ideal for simple desktop applications that leverages the Excel Add-In RTD solution. Its hybrid push/pull event model insulates applications from high-volume streams. Applications consume up-to-date data as often as they are capable. Availability:
COM - Available now.
.NET - In development.

MetaFluent JMS SDK suite. An implementation of the simple JMS pub/sub interface specification that provides full support for content such as market data. Applications subscribe to one or more JMS Topics and receive images, updates, and status indications in an intuitive manner. Data are represented as ready-to-use JMS MapMessages. Read more about why the JMS API is a natural choice for market data. For a developer who knows JMS (or learns it from the abundant public documentation and examples), all that is required is learning a few conventions. MetaFluent JMS is perhaps the industry's only market data API with a manual that is just a few dozen pages.

The MetaFluent JMS SDK is available now for Java, C and .NET.

MetaFluent JDBC SDK suite. An implementation of the JDBC interface specification that provides the means to consume and publish market data. Applications create one or more queries to create a "result set" containing the data required. The result set data can be refreshed as often as the application needs it. The MetaFluent JDBC driver ensures that the application is seeing the latest available real-time values.


MetaFluent server-side capabilities are sold in packages ("features") that are organized around particular business needs.

MetaFluent for RMDS provides high-performance pub/sub access to RMDS via an industry-standard API (see MetaFluent JMS SDK Suite, above). Applications access simple RMDS data (quotes and trades/level I) as well as Reuters chains via single Topic names, with no chain-walking required. Available now.

MetaFluent for Open MAMA Level I provides high-performance pub/sub access to Open MAMA Level I data via an industry-standard API (see MetaFluent JMS SDK Suite, above). Available now.

MetaFluent for Open MAMA Level II provides high-performance pub/sub access to Open MAMA Level II data (order books) via an industry-standard API (see MetaFluent JMS SDK Suite, above). Applications access a vendor-neutral representation of an order-book via a single topic subscription Available now.

MetaFluent Entitlements Direct is software that integrates with Thomson-Reuters Open DACS and/or Open Entitlements Server (DART) and potentially other such solutions. Entitlements Direct provides access control functionality to applications through pure Java, .Net and C implementations of the industry-standard JMS API. Applications login, make subscriptions and receive responses indicating whether or not they have required permissions. They also receive event-driven notifications of changes to entitlements. (Note: Entitlements Direct is not required for MetaFluent for RMDS, which includes its own DACS/DART integration.) Available now.

MetaFluent Managed Content Suite Software that enables you to normalize, blend, analyze, and otherwise tailor streaming and static content to the needs of particular business groups. Examples include publishing and subscribing of portfolios, in-house yield curves, and other rapidly updating content derived from customized logic or third-party add-ins such as Esper. The MetaFluent Managed Content Suite utilizes a patent-pending access framework for dynamic data that provides each user group with its own “virtual data universe.” A virtual universe is analogous to a database view but goes further by defining every other aspect of how the application wishes to experience a particular type of data, including how to identify information (symbology), how to represent it (data model) and with what quality of service (streaming vs snapshot, conflation levels, etc.). The framework supports both implicit data models that enable new workflows on the fly and explicit data models that provide consistency, control, and in-line transformation/enrichment. Ask us for a demo. In development.
