ASX’s data science platform DataSphere is now open for third parties looking to partner with ASX to help solve their data challenges. David Raper, ASX’s executive general manager for Trading Services, said in a statement that the platform has significantly expanded its ASX datasets since launching last year, and now includes datasets from third parties.
“We are in positive discussions with a growing community of data partners and a number of local and global data generators,” Raper said. “We’re opening up new and unique datasets. Our growing catalog of ASX and non-ASX datasets span fixed income, interest rate, derivatives, equities, and benchmarks. We’re already working with customers to build data products within the fixed income space. We’re also making historical versions of ASX’s market data and ReferencePoint products available.”
Workspaces, web-hosted dashboards and APIs can be accessed securely through the internet to avoid “complex integration requirements”. TIBCO, Cloudera, Talend and Virtustream also put together the infrastructure, data governance and distribution.
“ASX DataSphere has been developed to both power and empower customers. It does this through scalable analytics solutions that solve risk, compliance, operational efficiency and competitive advantage challenges, to provide a path to collaboration and commercialization for partners. This also supports the digital transformation of the industry,” said Raper.
