Following months of planning, we are reaping the benefits of the INET BFA data centre migration from Rosebank to the Parklands data centre in December 2017.


Data Centre

IRESS have started reaping the benefits of stability and scalability from moving the INET BFA data center from Rosebank to the IRESS Parklands data centre in December 2017, with further benefits to come as we consolidate the INET service layer into IRESS infrastructure and solutions.


IRESS Pro improvements

Work continues on adding INET content and functionality to IRESS Pro. The INET bond, forex and money market contributions are now available in IRESS Pro. Indices information, including the Property Indices, and broker research and forecasts will be the next additions to IRESS Pro. In line with MIFID II, we will be collecting readership statistics of permissioned users.

Version 18.2 of IRESS Pro offers estimates in Excel – a feature many clients have requested – as well as enhancements to the depth screen and custom commands. The new Morningstar Fact Sheet function offers all the information relevant to a share at a glance.


Newswire changes

IRESS and Alliance News Limited have announced the launch of the Alliance News South Africa service – “Alliance News SA”, and is available exclusively for IRESS clients and users.

The IRESS partnership with Alliance News SA  brings an increased, superior depth of comprehensive local and global market coverage to the IRESS financial market data offering.



We have been refining the ICDF XML solution for some time and can report that many clients are now testing this file. It is important for clients to adopt this file prior to ITaC goes live since it caters for longer field lengths and offers other enhancements.
