London, New York, and Palo Alto - Thomson Reuters and Symphony Communication Services have joined forces to foster open collaboration and information sharing across the financial services industry. The partnership, slated to be available later this year, will provide an integrated experience between the companies' two platforms to improve customer workflows by enabling market participants to share Eikon objects such as charts, news and data via Symphony's messaging and collaboration platform.

Users who have both Thomson Reuters Eikon and Symphony will be able to share Eikon content directly through the Symphony messaging and collaboration platform. If the recipient also has Eikon then they are able to share live data, news and charts to support dynamic, real-time collaboration. The integration will leverage both Eikon and Symphony open APIs.

Deb Walton, global managing director of customer propositions at Thomson Reuters said: "While Eikon users can already share Eikon content with counterparts via our strategic open Eikon Messenger platform, this partnership gives our customers the choice to extend these collaboration capabilities to the Symphony community."
