This collaboration with OMX supports SGXs continuing efforts to renew and refresh its IT infrastructure, with the objective of raising overall efficiency and enhancing service quality to market participants. This initiative with OMX enables SGX to offer new value-added price data to meet the needs of our customers. The new data feed system will also support future growth in price data traffic and improve transmission speed, said Chew Hong Gian, Head of Technology at SGX. This agreement further strengthens OMXs leading position in marketplace solutions for market data dissemination. We look forward to continue working with SGX to further strengthen their position as a leader in service quality, said Markus Gerdien, President, Market Technology, OMX.
