London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) has selected OpenFin’s technology for its flagship LSEG Workspace platform. The firms say the partnership will leverage OpenFin’s secure zero-install delivery model and container technology to simplify distribution of LSEG’s data and analytics to customer desktops.
Under the partnership, LSEG will migrate LSEG Workspace to leverage OpenFin’s technology, making its platform more easily deployable and interoperable with thousands of internal apps developed by banks and buy-side customers.
“Transforming user experience starts with seamless delivery of LSEG Workspace to customer desktops,” says Dean Berry, group head of trading and banking solutions at LSEG. “Use of OpenFin significantly enhances our delivery model and end user experience, leveraging technology that is already trusted by most global banks and leading asset managers.”
OpenFin says it is the only provider of container technology that is co-stable with Google Chromium, ensuring that critical security patches and other enhancements to the Chromium engine are continuously and seamlessly delivered to end user desktops. “As technologists we greatly appreciate OpenFin’s commitment to open web standards and their rigorous process for keeping up with Google Chromium,” says Borre Wessel, head of desktop platform technology at LSEG. “We will leverage their technology to deliver LSEG Workspace cross-platform to both Windows and Mac devices.”
