The Interactive Financial eXchange (IFX; http://www.ifxforum.org) Forum announced today that it has published Version 2.4 of IFX, its open, interoperable standard for financial data exchange. The IFX Business Message Specification is available at no charge at http://bms.ifxforum.org/.
New IFX message specification
The new version's enhancements include updates, corrections and refinements in various areas of the specification, along with improvements to the automated XSD generator that is available to Forum members and subscribers.
"Delivering IFX 2.4 demonstrates the Forum's ongoing commitment to providing real benefits to the financial services industry, worldwide," said Richard P. Urban, President of the IFX Forum. "The participants in our Working Groups and Architecture actively seek to address the needs of IFX users, and we are grateful for their collective efforts. We invite all interested parties to join us at our Annual Meeting in April, where together we will lay out a road map for the future direction of IFX and Forum activities."
