Reporting Consolidated Risk in Real Time
The partners needed live, global, intraday risk updates. The risk manager was charged with making it happen.
The risk manager instructed desks to publish their risk metrics to UpTickXL by adding a single UPTICK.PUBLISH call to existing risk spreadsheets. Doing so took each desk only a few seconds. The risk manager then created a new spreadsheet that receives all of the desk-level data in real time, consolidates it, and automatically publishes a global report. The project was completed within a day.
Developing Trading Systems Faster
A quant trader implemented an automated stat arb strategy in a Python server, but he lacked the skill to build a robust user interface for configuration and monitoring.
The quant trader created a simple spreadsheet for configuring and monitoring the strategy. He used UpTickXL to publish configurations from Excel to his Python server and to display activity reports published by the server. In almost no time, the quant trader had built and integrated a customized and user-friendly interface for his strategy.
Distributing Centralized Data
Operations maintains a database containing reconciled positions, settlement prices and other critical information. They struggled to distribute the data in an accessible, secure and timely way.
Operations built a simple adaptor that queries the database and publishes reports for each desk to UpTickXL. They permissioned the reports so that each trader could see only his own. Most traders view their reports in Excel, using the powerful UpTickXL Add-In utility methods to quickly build highly functional and efficient interfaces. Some traders access their reports programmatically using one of the available UpTickXL APIs.
UpTickXL Server is the hub of the messaging system. It exposes simple, server-side APIs that facilitate quick integration with any system running on any platform. UpTickXL Server supports clustering for hot failover, data redundancy, load balancing and constant uptime. Both on-premises and hosted deployments are supported.
UpTickXL Add-In for Excel
UpTickXL Add-In enables real-time and on-demand communication between instances of Excel and other applications via UpTickXL Server. UpTickXL Add-In also provides powerful Excel utility methods that greatly simplify the creation of highly functional and efficient spreadsheets.
UpTickXL API Client Libraries
Client-side UpTickXL APIs that further simplify systems integration are available for a number of popular programming languages.
