AIM Software to integrate Telekurs VDF data

AIM Software, a leading provider of reference data management solutions to the financial industry, announced today that New York-based Lava Trading, Inc. has selected AIM Software's data management platform GAIN for the integration of price, static and corporate actions data provided by Telekurs Financial's Valor Data Feed (VDF). Lava is a leading developer of high-performance trading solutions for the financial services industry.

Lava required a data integration platform that supports the direct input of Telekurs VDF equities, corporate actions and options data into its SQL server environment. Lava chose AIM Software's GAIN solution to improve the efficiency of its internal data management processes by creating centralized data workflows.

The scalable GAIN platform features batch file requests and returns exit codes for escalation purposes. Once launched, the software synchronizes the VDF security master file with the incoming delta files. Options, equity and corporate actions data for North American securities are loaded daily.

"With Telekurs VDF as our main data source, it was becoming necessary to implement optimal data centralization strategies and straight-through processes," said John R. Ehlers, Senior Vice President & Head of Business Services, Lava Trading. "AIM's platform efficiently addressed this need."

"We chose GAIN for its simple, intuitive, and yet complex capabilities," added Richard Jacobi, Vice President, Vendor Relationships, Lava Trading. "Moreover, AIM's experience and expertise in integrating VDF data proved to be a key factor in selecting GAIN. With an implementation time of only two weeks, we were able to minimize costs and focus on our core competencies."

"With industry support for our integrated GAIN platform, more and more companies are recognizing the power of a solution that solves today's business challenges, while positioning them on a technology platform for the future.
