Nasdaq has launched Nasdaq Data Link, a cloud-based technology platform that empowers all segments of the investing public with a comprehensive suite of core financial, fund and alternative data. The platform connects the global financial community to the information needed to generate alpha, manage risk and gain transparency into public and private markets. Marketplace for financial, economic and alternative data, Quandi, which Nasdaq acquired, serves as the new platform’s underlying infrastructure, ensuring seamless user experience and continued delivery of high-performance APIs. Nasdaq customers can now access an expanding library of datasets via cloud APIs to manage, discover, and integrate new information with ease. The delivery of this information includes streaming, restful APIs as well as other methods of receiving content. The platform will also provide secure, end-to-end data hosting through managed infrastructure and services that enable users to privately share proprietary data, manage data access, and monitor data quality over time within a single organization.
