Data Management Solutions

Leverage Barchart's powerful infrastructure to collect data from multiple source types including data streams, pull and push files, and synchronized on-demand queries. Our capacity to store, transmit and distribute data spans both physical and cloud-based data centers. This infrastructure is available to clients as part of our Enterprise Data Management solutions.

Organizations can leverage our infrastructure to manage their own data, while Barchart systems handle exchange and reference data, as well as unformatted and loosely-formatted data. Our redundant, distributed data stores are both SQL and NoSQL.Barchart has built an extensive set of APIs which organizations can implement as part of their websites and apps to extract data. These APIs are backed by authentication and authorization systems which allow for field-level access, and all extractions can be audited.

Our data distribution platform includes streaming data, OnDemand per query access, time-based files creation, and distribution via HTTP, FTP, and email. Clients can also utilize Barchart's Content Management System (CMS) to create unique front ends for internal and external users.

Our comprehensive EDM services (below) can be customized, and are fully managed and hosted by Barchart.

APIs FOR YOUR DATA
(OnDemand/Web Services)

  • Centralized data means a centralized API model
  • All data interaction via data access layer

All data that resides on our database cluster is accessed via a central set of APIs. Depending on the types of data and requirements, additional custom APIs may be written. This allows for a flexible system to extract data.
All of our services are built on top of the API layer. You can choose to expose the API layer to your customers, giving them direct, programmatic, and flexible access to the data, while preserving all security, auditing, and tracking.
