StockPoint Nordic Uses Eiffel to Create Solutions for the Financial Industry

StockPoint Nordic AS, a Norwegian software house delivering solutions to the Scandinavian Financial Market, is successfully using ISE Eiffel to build a high performance, highly reliable infrastructure called ICDC (Information Collection and Distribution Components). The infrastructure utilizes a homegrown data transfer protocol as well as 2AB, Inc's orb2 CORBA product for Eiffel. StockPoint Nordic is using EiffelBase, EiffelNet and EiffelStore from ISE as well as open source Eiffel libraries and applications. As an example of the latter, the company is using Jim Cochrane's Market Analysis Server (MAS) and has contributed to it being ported to Windows as well as adding database access to MAS."

"We're very satisfied with the latest version of ISE's Eiffel product", says Mr. Eirik Mangseth, who is responsible for Methods and Tools within the company.
