Thomson Reuters Leads Way for Openness in Financial Services with New App Development Suite in Eikon

App Studio in Eikon will cultivate innovation across the industry and increase productivity with new generations of third-party apps available directly within Eikon itself

Thomson Reuters today announced enhancements to the open capabilities of its flagship financial desktop, Eikon, which will help foster innovation, boost productivity and enhance client servicing for financial institutions around the world.  App Studio in Eikon allows third-party developers to create apps that display as native applications on the Eikon screen, distributing them directly and securely to Eikon users.

The financial industry is increasingly turning to open technology standards to spur the innovation and flexibility institutions need to remain competitive in an increasingly complex business landscape.  With App Studio, Eikon provides an open environment where the financial industry can build a new generation of apps that help foster innovation whilst also improving productivity.

App Studio is an evolution of Eikon’s pre-existing open capabilities, allowing in-house developers and independent software vendors to blend Eikon’s leading news, market data and analytical tools with proprietary research and other third-party data.  These apps can then be deployed directly within Eikon, either publicly or to specific individuals or groups.

These new capabilities will also help improve financial professionals’ productivity.  Typically, desktop users have been reliant on standalone systems to perform different tasks, creating a disjointed and error-prone user experience.  App Studio allows developers to fully integrate their apps with those already in the Eikon screen, improving workflow and streamlining processes.

“Our customers’ success increasingly depends on their being able to use the data they want, in the format they require, on the devices they prefer,” said Philip Brittan, chief technology officer and global head of platform, Financial & Risk, Thomson Reuters.  “Thomson Reuters is building an open platform where the ideas of the market can thrive.  App Studio in Eikon is one of many ways we are drawing on open technologies to eliminate the barriers to efficient, collaborative workflows in the financial industry.  It will help financial professionals generate fresh business ideas, respond rapidly to market changes and deliver new tools and services to their clients”
