The availability of accurate trading data and Data Management Tools are some of the key requirements any CTRM system. ITAS is a comprehensive contract administration solution developed to manage trading, accounting and risk activities but more often than not, our customers may use other services or software, either on-premise or cloud-based. Traditional integrations with bespoke development can be both costly and difficult, as knowledge of data on both sides of the integration is required to be successful. Over a number of years, we have built a comprehensive framework that allows ITAS to seamlessly integrate with the unique requirements presented by our customers, either through in-house development or bespoke workflow scripting. ITAS provides a number of data services and architecture that compliment our core functionality and enable customers to store, modify and process data to suit their specific requirements.

API-enabled access was once the sole preserve of Enterprise operations, i.e. those with in-house development capability. In order to bridge the gap and allow citizen-driven API integrations we have introduced the OData (Open Data Protocol) Service. It is a dedicated service that can integrate with any application or platform that supports OData feeds which includes Microsoft Excel and Power BI. It enables user-access to ITAS Data Entities, Reports and Actions whilst implementing common policies and permissions managed through ITAS.
One of the key features offered by the Data Portal is the Data Views and Extended Properties. We have employed a task-driven approach where a unique user or group can access the specific data and toolset they require to complete a task or operation. The Data Views (tasks) can be accessed directly from the primary navigation, and the additional data and tools (Extended Properties) will be available.
Do you need to automatically move or update data, process files when they are received, pull data from a web feed or automatically react when an alert is received? From weighbridge processing, to exchange rate downloads, P&L calculations to metals pricing - the Data Processing Service (DPS) can be customised* to manage just about any automated task that 'just needs to get done', quickly and efficiently. * Custom processing may require development at an additional cost.
One of the most valuable aspects of any commodity trading application is its reporting capability. The Reporting Dashboard offers both data manipulation grids for investigative queries and templated positional reporting of aggregated data for executive use. As there is no ‘standard’ definition of a report, all Reporting Dashboard screens are customised to your requirements.
