Data Management Solutions for Commodities Trading

Understanding the Refinitiv Data Management Solution (RDMS).

Our solution to the digitalisation of the commodities market 

As technology continues to disrupt and transform the commodities trading arena, market participants have ever-increasing access to disparate sets of data, digital tools and analytics platforms. This trend has reshaped commodity trading, as so much more information is now accessible. 

While it’s easy to have access to an unlimited amount of data, the key is to be able to utilise it in a streamlined manner, giving you what you need, exactly when you need it. Inefficiencies can arise when valuable time and resources are spent on collating and combing through the wide variety of information available. 

At Refinitiv, we enable clients to make the best possible use of their data, technology and human or artificial intelligence. Providing clients with solutions to remain ahead of the curve of digital transformation and gain competitive edge.

The Refinitiv Data Management Solution (RDMS) merges and normalises data across a range of sources

RDMS serves as an aggregator of disparate data sources giving clients the option to ingest and standardise data from various types of data sources:

  • Data and content from Refinitiv
  • Data and content from other third-party providers
  • Exclusive access to proprietary data from relevant organisations

The solution then allows customers to comingle and disseminate the aggregated data via C/ETRM, Excel, SaaS based Dashboards or scripting output forms. Ensuring consumption of big data is in a logical and structured manner to extract maximum value from internal or external data sets at a lower cost.  

Everything is there to help you make critical decisions quickly and efficiently. The Refinitiv Intelligent Tagging and our proprietary verification system break down the data, news and content elements into an easy-to-consume format, accessible via our platforms or data feeds. Whether you are used to FTPs, feeds, desktops, servers, clouds or data lakes, this helps you with data standardisation and nomenclature that is consistent across everything you work on.
