These use cases are general descriptions of the types of implementations available using Interactive Data's Consolidated Feed. Please contact us for more detailed information.
A Software Partner is a company that has developed their own software application to be compatible with Interactive Data's content offering. The partner provides their application directly to our mutual customer, to use in conjunction with IDC Data. Interactive Data delivers the data directly to the Customer, and maintains control of user entitlements. In this way, IDC can be Vendor of Record with exchanges.
A Service Facilitator can be defined as a third party organization that Interactive Data contracts with to facilitate the delivery of data to mutual customers via the display application that the Service Facilitator has developed. The Service Facilitator uses its own distribution and entitlement system to provide data to the customers’ end-users, however Interactive Data maintains ultimate control of the permissioning of the content and data flow to end-users.
An uncontrolled datafeed customer takes the data at their premises (or their hosted environment) and internally distributes the data around their organisation. The permissioning and dissemination of the data is controlled by the customer and not by Interactive Data.
