Combines technical indicators, pricing and reference data to seamlessly streamline workflow

NEW YORK/LONDON, February 5, 2013 - Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent
information for businesses and professionals, today announced the launch of the DataScope Workflow
License (DWL). The DataScope Workflow License combines a series of technical indicators with
pricing and reference data, enabling the investment community to streamline and integrate their
data management and performance strategies. 

Phase one of the DWL enables clients to access a wider and deeper set of value added content,
including a range of technical indicators to specifically support the operation of their Order
Management Systems (OMS) for equities, futures and options. Phase two will extend the capability
to include a comprehensive range of fixed income assets. 

"DWL is in response to customer requests to evermore deeply and seamlessly embed Thomson Reuters
rich pricing and reference data more widely into their workflow; while OMS is the first functional
area of the workflow for us to tackle, we plan to systematically address other key areas of the
workflow as part of the DWL offering," said Debra Walton, managing director, Enterprise Content at
Thomson Reuters. "Clients can license DWL directly from Thomson Reuters or through our approved
third-party distributors.

DWL is delivered via DataScope Select (DSS) and provides full DSS functionality of universe and
data field definition, as well as scheduling via the DSS Web Interface, FTP or API. Flexibility is
another vital function of the product offering, with the data delivery solution designed to
seamlessly fit into a clients' workflow, with a quick and easy integration process. 

"We recognize the challenges faced by the trading & investment communities," said Kate Toumazi,
global head of front office, Enterprise Content at Thomson Reuters. "We understand that people are
seeking cost effective pricing, reference as well as technical indicator data to power specific
front and middle office workflows, and our new license is positioned to meet these needs."

The launch of the DataScope Workflow License supports Thomson Reuters vision to connect and enable
the global financial community. It represents a significant step forward in addressing the
workflow needs of both the trading and investment communities. 

Technical indicators, which are an integral part of the DWL, capture information relevant for
forecasting prices in securities markets separate to those provided by macroeconomic and factor
models, which can be utilized to influence risk and portfolio management strategies. 

These indicators provide data on 300,000 equities, 880,000 options, 865,000 options on futures and
250,000 futures, while enhancing a firm's ability to track, measure and predict patterns in the
equities, futures and options markets.  Along with related financial information, they provide
clients with all the content necessary for security master management, asset setup, enterprise
data management and compliance & exposure reporting. These measures help to reduce manual
intervention, information management costs and operational costs, while improving operational
efficiency at the same time. 

To ensure our clients can access related data sets in the most seamless and flexible way, and with
the lowest IT footprint possible, Enterprise Content will partner with established re-distributors
and market players. All interested 3rd parties should email  for more information.
