Updata integrates IIR Energy, the leading source of supply-side market intelligence for energy markets

Updata integrates IIR Energy, the leading source of supply-side market intelligence for energy markets

Updata further strengthens its leading position as a market leader in Analytics for energy traders and analysts with the addition of IIR Energy. An increasing number of energy trading firms use Updata to view IIR Energy statistics stored in their own internal in-house databases. Now firms can take advantage of Updata feed handlers written direct to IIR Energy's databases.


Updata has collaborated with IIR Energy to develop a new set of analytical tools specific to IIR Energy data. And the parties intend to develop these tools in conjunction with end users still further. In the latest version of Updata, released last week, users can now:

  • Chart and analyze IIR Energy data including planned and unplanned outages
  • Produce stacked charts showing breakdowns of production data by state, region, fuel type etc
  • View and rank tabulated data of all generation facilities with the ability to drill down to full details for each plant


Commenting on the integration to IIR Energy, David Linton, Updata CEO says: "The team at IIR Energy are clear experts in gathering and maintaining their unique supply-side market intelligence in the energy industry. We are excited to maximize the true value of this data with the best analytical tools available. This gives energy trading firms a much better capability and the extra edge they need for an advantage in the market."


“Plant outages – planned and unplanned – are a key variable to determining profitability in energy trading,” adds Paul Copello, president of IIR Energy. “The combination of Updata’s tools and IIR Energy’s market data will give users better, faster decision-making intelligence, with more standardization and reliability.”


Background


Updata was founded over 20 years ago with the aim of delivering the best technical analysis software running on as many data sources as possible - hence 'Up data'. The company’s headquarters are in London, with additional US offices in New York and Houston with Singapore opening shortly. Updata's software is used by professional traders and analysts in over 50 countries.

 

 

 

Updata launches Updata Collect, a generic data engine that builds and databases price histories for firms on the fly.


Updata Collect technology can strip data from:

  • Spreadsheets

  • PDF and Word documents

  • Email

  • Web pages

Many finance and trading firms receive daily spreadsheets or PDFs by email from brokers and vendors. Updata Collect is a fully automated service to strip this data from these files to be graphically visualised and analysed in Updata's market leading technical analysis platform. Furthermore, historical databases can be built rapidly by simply placing all historic sheets in a single directory.


Updata Collect saves firms building their own data scrapes and in-house databases or from purchasing expensive risk management systems. Firms can then cross compare this data with a choice of over 25 data vendors and market terminals that Updata already connects to. The company has been trialing the service for several months with a number of firms globally and has seen strong take up of the technology.


Commenting on Updata Collect, David Linton, Updata CEO says: "Updata Collect was born as a result of more and more clients asking us if we could get different data they were looking at into Updata so they could use it much more effectively. The ability to visualise and analyse how these unique sets of data are changing historically gives traders and analysts the extra edge they need for an advantage in the market."
