oraïse PICOS live with Refinitiv Contribution Channel

The first PICOS customer changed contribution in their production environment from MarketLink IP to the new Refiniv Contribution Channel, both products of Refinitiv (an LSEG business) after an extensive test and transition phase.

In time for the upcoming obsolescence of MLIP, announced by Refinitiv for Q3/2021, PICOS, the multi contribution platform from oraïse, enables the efficient publication of market data to the new Refinitiv interface, with a newly developed software part.

PICOS is a platform-independent and optimising multi-vendor market data contribution server, which allows market data generated in financial institutions to be accurately communicated in parallel to vendors such as Refinitiv, Bloomberg, SIX Financial Information, Infront, and more.

Cost-saving through test systems in hybrid environments

For complex 3rd party applications, different instances and stages often have to be maintained in the financial market.
In most cases, there is a two-digit number of development- and test systems.
Through the use of modern DevOps and container technologies, we are able to create test and integration instances dynamically
in hybrid environments “on-demand” without having to maintain the infrastructure 365x7x24.
Deployments to private and private/public clouds are possible within minutes.
This allows significant cost saving to be achieved through the use of (HW) resources, without restrictions in development and test processes.

When emergency assistance becomes excellent service

Another example of the smooth takeover of a complete application management system was recently completed with the achievement of a milestone:
Due to personnel changes in August, our customer experienced a critical bottleneck in the application management of EUREX modules. We were not only able to offer our customer help in an emergency, but also to provide transition and integration into the existing service.
In parallel, new releases were accompanied in the simulation (Eurex T7 Release 9.0, Eurex C7 7.0, and Eurex F7 3.4). In the last few weeks, all components were transferred to the service and the new releases were accompanied in their productive implementation.

We are particularly pleased to have received such positive feedback from the customer in this week’s service call and to have once again been able to demonstrate our IT and service competence in application management. Whenever it is time-critical and important.

If you need support in your application management, please let us know. Send a message to info@oraise.com

Consulting in times of Covid-19?

Is it possible to initiate and run a consulting project during a global pandemic?


Before the pandemic started, we received an RFP from a Swiss customer regarding a market data project. We started to discuss what we can offer and what our approach could be. Usually these kinds of projects involve a lot of interaction with the customer and staff onsite – doing workshops, conducting interviews, getting a feeling for the situation, and eventually developing a solution scenario. So, we thought starting the process would not be possible without meeting in person.
However, the customer was under a certain pressure to kick off the project as soon as possible with the pandemic not going away real soon. The oraise group has been selected to conduct the project – not only because of the concepts we developed to handle everything remotely.

We started the project without having met each other personally. We did all the project work with a team of three consultants from oraise working with a team of five from the customer (who are also working remotely). We conducted interviews, coordinated virtual meetings and workshops, and made good progress – much better than expected.

Despite seeing each other only via video, we have built a good relationship of trust. The project worked out very well and is successful – as the customer confirmed to us.

After running the whole project fully remotely the core team eventually met in person once (as the Covid-19 situation got better for a while) to discuss the results. It was good to see the people in person finally and everybody agreed that things went far better than expected in the beginning.

So, what is the bottom-line? Remote projects are possible, they may even be more efficient (no travel times & meetings stick to business topics) than on-site projects.

We had a good plan and adhered to it consequently.

However, social interaction without meeting in person is difficult. We were lucky that everybody pulled in the same direction and that there were no difficult stakeholders and politics that are part of many projects.

In the future – post pandemic – we are looking forward to running projects with the experience we gained with the best from both worlds – having personal interaction as well as efficient and concentrated remote work.
