Business Use-Cases

The MetaFluent architecture has been developed over several years to respond to a number of related business uses. Click on a use case below for more information.

MetaFluent hides vendor complexity while enabling applications to publish and subscribe market data via standards-based interfaces, along with conventions (such as symbology) that make sense to a given user group.
