Platts Rolls Out Real-Time Data-Delivery Service
Platts introduced Platts Market Data Direct, a data-delivery service that makes customized Platts daily price assessments, historical price data, and other reference data—on resources such as oil, electric power, and agricultural commodities—available in real time via an API data stream and/or Excel plug-in.
The key features of the new service are as follows:
- More meaningful data: options to filter out unwanted market data, thereby isolating data more pertinent to the user
- Faster access to historical data: historical data packages available immediately, rather than hours and days later
- Easier interrogation of data: customizable watch-lists and alerts; view of the latest price movements; and, ability to automate processes typically done manually, all of which aid time and process efficiency
- Easier and faster integration of Platts data into proprietary systems: ability to seamlessly incorporate price, historical and reference data into proprietary and third-party applications
