Thomson Reuters Corporation : Thomson Reuters Leads Way for Openness in Financial Services with New App Development Suite in Eikon

App Studio in Eikon will cultivate innovation across the industry and increase
productivity with new generations of third-party apps available directly
within Eikon itself

NEW YORK/LONDON, October 7, 2015 -
Thomson Reuters today announced enhancements to the open capabilities of its
flagship financial desktop, Eikon, which will help foster innovation, boost
productivity and enhance client servicing for financial institutions around
the world. App Studio in Eikonallows third-party developers to create apps
that display as native applications on the Eikon screen, distributing them
directly and securely to Eikon users.

The financial industry is increasingly turning to open technology standards to
spur the innovation and flexibility institutions need to remain competitive
in an increasingly complex business landscape. With App Studio, Eikon
provides an open environment where the financial industry can build a new
generation of apps that help foster innovation whilst also improving
productivity.

App Studio is an evolution of Eikon's pre-existing open capabilities, allowing
in-house developers and independent software vendors to blend Eikon's leading
news, market data and analytical tools with proprietary research and other
third-party data. These apps can then be deployed directly within Eikon,
either publicly or to specific individuals or groups.

These new capabilities will also help improvefinancial professionals'
productivity. Typically, desktop users have been reliant on standalone
systems to perform different tasks, creating a disjointed and error-prone
user experience. App Studio allows developers to fully integrate their apps
with those already in the Eikon screen, improving workflow and streamlining
processes.

"Financial institutions today are seeking a fresh approach to technology
development and innovation and understand that openness is key to ensuring
control and flexibility," said Sang Lee, managing partner, Aite Group. "By
empowering and engaging a vibrant developer community, firms can create
applications that intelligently use data to reduce cost of ownership,
streamline workflows and create a community that allows users to leverage
knowledge, best practices and resources. Enabling users to leverage existing
infrastructure and resources from idea generation to application deployment
can help firms drive effective collaboration and empower them to succeed in
the increasingly competitive marketplace."

"Our customers' success increasingly depends on their being able to use the
data they want, in the format they require, on the devices they prefer," said
Philip Brittan, chief technology officer and global head of platform,
Financial&Risk, Thomson Reuters. "Thomson Reuters is building an open
platform where the ideas of the market can thrive. App Studio in Eikon is
one of many ways we are drawing on open technologies to eliminate the
barriers to efficient, collaborative workflows in the financial industry. It
will help financial professionals generate fresh business ideas, respond
rapidly to market changes and deliver new tools and services to their
clients"
