Market Data Terminal Usage Optimized

Track market data terminal usage across your organization with ResearchMonitor

Today, global spending on financial market data, analysis and news is topping $37.3 billion and is expected to keep growing by the year.

If your company is using premium market data products & services to support business activities, it is likely a significant amount of that spend is allocated to subscriptions on terminals.

But do you also know what your firm is exactly spending on these subscriptions? Do you understand how terminals are being used, by whom, and for what purposes?

ResearchMonitor’s installed application monitoring module provides insights into market data terminal and desktop application usage to help you better manage your terminal counts — thereby saving time & money and reducing risk.

Terminal usage optimization

ResearchMonitor helps to rationalize your firm’s use of market data terminals through comprehensive reporting into actual usage of these terminals. It supports you to optimize usage by accurately identifying:

  • Unused subscriptions — a subscription that is not in use will be a potential candidate for removal
  • Underused subscriptions — a subscription that is only used for a limited number of days is a potential candidate for sharing, removal, or moving to a more cost-effective platform

Advanced usage reporting & analytics

ResearchMonitor provides usage data and analysis at your fingertips. It includes high-level key performance indicator (KPI) dashboards and extensive drill-down functionality to the granular data and is highly customizable to support individual reporting and analysis requirements.

Usage data includes full period-on-period trend analysis to easily visualize and assess usage over time.
