In 2014 eConnect Connector framework was released as a licensed product, designed and built for all the same market connectivity and integration problems that had been addressed over the years. This was first licensed and used in 2015 by a consortium of 15 top tier investments banks and around 25 of their buy side clients, in a real-time AXE indication network utility. The framework formed the bases of a Buy Side web GUI providing real time pre-trade AXE indications from a FIX based network utility, on a secure internet hosted GUI. The framework also formed the basis of an offering to the sell side, providing a fast integration option to connect to the network utility.
eConnect soon evolved to become more dynamic and operate in a distributed fashion, functioning as a micro services platform for financial systems. This platform has generated interest from financial institutions, and forms the basis of proposals to develop their systems.
