Options Technology and Code Willing launch two cloud-based data platform products

Rick Steves

“The partnership between Options and Code Willing is a real game-changer that will solve how data is absorbed, cleaned, and delivered across all cloud environments.”

Options Technology and financial data management specialist Code Willing have announced the awaited launch end-to-end data platform products “Options Data Store” and “Quantify”.

As key additions to Options’ product portfolio, these solutions are underpinned by Options’ SOC compliant security services, with 24/7 support and monitoring.

Options Data Store offers ready-to-use datasets for users

Options Data Store offers traders and researchers the ability to “try and buy” ready-to-use datasets without sourcing and storing large datasets.

The solution removes the complexity of capturing, normalising, and storing market data, enabling users to focus on alpha generation. Utilising a user-friendly GUI, data is made available in multiple formats, including ID mapped using a proprietary multi-asset security master.

Users can launch datasets directly in an embedded Jupyter Notebook or within Quantify, a high-performance compute environment, with the ability to query in multiple languages.

Quantify is a self-service compute environment for datasets

Quantify layers a fully auditable and high-performance self-service compute environment on top of Options Data Store, providing an abundance of data through a converged enterprise service.

The product features granular file system-level data entitlements and built-in audit and budgeting toolsets, and it also boasts multi-cloud capabilities, with the ability to direct compute jobs to the lowest-cost or most efficient environment based on available capacity.

Addressing key industry pain points

Micah Kroeze, Options, SVP Product Management, commented: “Code Willing’s unique technology solutions and Options’ industry-leading infrastructure services have allowed us to address key industry pain points around data acquisition, trading strategy time to market, and enterprise data control. We are delighted to announce Options Data Store and Quantify and look forward to continuing to bring material value to our clients through our partnership with Code Willing.”

Baron Davis, CEO at Code Willing, said; “The partnership between Options and Code Willing is a real game-changer that will solve how data is absorbed, cleaned, and delivered across all cloud environments. Their incredible infrastructure and customer service, coupled with our high-end software solutions, make the perfect match. We are thrilled to be bringing these two revolutionary products to market as the next phase in our alliance.”

Options Technology has recently announced VMware Cloud Verified Status in LHC, hosting capabilities in Bergamo, and a fifth Microsoft Gold partner status in the communications competency.

The fintech firm has accelerated its growth strategy and developed its technology platform since receiving investment from Boston-based Private Equity Firm, Abry Partners, in 2019.
