Thomson Reuters Eikon Becomes First Native Market Data App for BlackBerry 10

Thomson Reuters works with BlackBerry to take advantage of full privacy and enterprise security features of the BlackBerry 10 platform

HONG KONG, LONDON, NEW YORK, 23 July 2013 – Thomson Reuters today announced the release of Eikon for BlackBerry® 10, the first financial markets data application to be developed using the native development tools for the BlackBerry 10 platform. Thomson Reuters has worked closely with BlackBerry® throughout the development of the latest Eikon app to ensure customers can benefit from the enhanced privacy, enterprise security and user experience that BlackBerry 10 provides.

Eikon for BlackBerry 10 takes full advantage of the native BlackBerry 10 development tools to deliver a smooth user experience. It features a customized dashboard for quick access to a customer’s most important data, market-moving news, seamless list monitoring and saved news searches with synchronization to the Eikon desktop and a powerful briefcase feature for reading content offline.

The app is the latest addition to Thomson Reuters Eikon’s mobile application suite which includes highly-regarded applications for other platforms. Thomson Reuters’ platform strategy for Eikon means that there is a seamless customer experience across all channels, mobile or otherwise, with all Eikon mobile applications offering key Eikon innovations such as workflow-based design as well as keyword search and dynamic autosuggest to help customers discover information quickly and easily.

“In an industry where seconds and milliseconds matter, Thomson Reuters Eikon ensures our customers can have instant access to the breaking news and financial content they need to seize opportunities first - no matter where they are when they occur,” said John Manwaring, head of mobile for Thomson Reuters Eikon. “The Eikon mobile interface follows the same simple, intelligent design principles that Eikon is now well-known for, ensuring that everything our customers need is right there at the surface. By working closely with BlackBerry and using the native development tools, we have created an enterprise-grade Eikon mobile app with the security our clients have come to expect from both Thomson Reuters and the BlackBerry platform.”

”Thomson Reuters Eikon embodies the future for market data apps with its clean design and ease of use,” said Martyn Mallick, VP of Global Alliances and Business Development at BlackBerry.
“Thomson Reuters has created an effective solution for financial professionals that need to stay connected to the markets and information while on the move.”

Thomson Reuters Eikon is designed to provide a powerful and intuitive next-generation solution for consuming real-time and historical data, connecting with the financial markets community and executing financial markets transactions across asset classes such as foreign exchange (FX), fixed income, commodities, equities and derivatives. It realizes Thomson Reuters vision for a financial markets desktop that is intelligent, simple and social and provides access to a messaging community of over 190,000 financial professionals. Driven by powerful search engine technology, Eikon carries real-time data, news, charts, insightful commentary, analytics and trade execution tools through views that can be customized to individual user preferences and workflow. Based on open standards, it is powered by Thomson Reuters Elektron, the Company’s low latency data and trading infrastructure.
