Reuters to embrace the web (at last)


Here is an interesting item about Reuters moving to the web.

This is a bold move by Reuters, although would be interesting to hear more about internet delivery, browser support and how they plan to handle latency issues (already talking about co-location of client servers). Streaming market data efficiently over the web is one thing, but managing real-time trade messages over the web using browers is another.

Anyone have any thoughts on how Reuters plan to support trading over the web?

  1. its nothing new and is being done by other vendors and also in-house IT teams.

  2. The article is quite confusing. They are talking about Eikon as if it were a web-based product or something really new. But it is just the new name of 300Xtra.

    The only thing I know is that thay are looking for developers with Javascript / AJAX / ASP.Net experience. Which leads me to think that thay are very far away from launching anything (a true web-based product) this year.
