London, 16 November 2006 -- Gissing Software, solution specialists in the routing and transformation of real-time market and trade data, today announced the immediate availability of Gissing ConteX MCS 3.73, the latest release of its leading multi contribution system which is used to meet the contribution needs of major financial institutions at more than 50 sites around the globe. The major feature of Gissing ConteX 3.73 is that it includes two new handlers to enable the integration of complementary third-party technologies. These are: Lightstreamer for streaming real-time data to web pages, and ITRS Geneos for real-time application monitoring, allowing users to monitor the performance of all Gissing ConteX MCS output and handlers in real-time. The release also includes an output handler for Bloomberg’s money markets rates feed allowing users to contribute rates directly to Bloomberg ECPX.
Incorporating an interface to the ITRS Geneos product suite within Gissing ConteX 3.73 will allow users to continually monitor the performance of all Gissing ConteX input and output handlers together with basic Kernel information. This enables users to proactively manage and resolve any potential issues that arise, ensuring no disruption to their mission-critical real-time data contributions. Geneos allows institutions to easily and cost-effectively monitor, manage and measure the performance of Gissing ConteX remotely – so that systems administrators can access and monitor the system from anywhere in the world.
Simon Walmsley, VP of Sales for Lightstreamer said: "Our partnership with Gissing Software and the development of a Lightstreamer Output Handler for Gissing ConteX 3.73 enables us to offer a broad range of market data through an off-the-shelf integration with Lightstreamer. Gissing’s ConteX architecture makes it very straightforward to stream data to web users from any suitable data source. Our collaboration with Gissing resulted from client demand and we are already working together on a number of deployments."
Stephen Bates, Managing Director, ITRS Group PLC, added: "Using our recently developed plug-in for Gissing ConteX 3.73, customers will be able to monitor in real-time the status of their Gissing contributions, and view and manage those results through the Geneos Active Console. We have a number of leading financial institutions who have requested this addition to their monitoring capability, and we are pleased to be able to deliver for them."
