New Web- and Application-Servers: Faster and more efficient!

Over the next six weeks, until around mid-January 2024, Update 29.12.2023: On the weekend of January 6th to 7th, 2024, we will be making important technological updates at WMACCESS.com. These changes affect our web- and application-servers, the technological foundation of our WMACCESS online offerings.

For you as a user of our WMACCESS application and services, this means one thing above all: improved performance without you noticing! There are no visual or functional changes you need to be aware of. Behind the scenes, we have worked hard to make your experience with WMACCESS even better.

One of these improvements is the use of HTTP/2, which has already contributed to faster and more efficient interaction with our web server. In addition, the introduction of HTTP/3 is imminent. This advanced technology will be available in the near future and offers further improvements in terms of speed and efficiency for your online experience with WMACCESS.

Moreover, we will be making some minor technical adjustments. An example of this is changing the WMACCESS session cookie name to __Host-SESSIONID. We also want to emphasize that there will continue to be no annoying cookie banner at WMACCESS. This is because we do not perform tracking and use only technically necessary session cookies. Our users can rely on their privacy being protected and their online experience remaining undisturbed.

These updates lay the groundwork for expanding our individual services and introducing new WMACCESS releases in the coming year. We look forward to offering you an even better experience, and thank you for your trust in WMACCESS.

Price adjustment for WMACCESS Internet as of 01.01.2024

These days we are sending out a notice, either by post or email, to our valued WMACCESS Internet customers about the upcoming price adjustment.

After leaving the prices unchanged for more than 13 years, the current development in connection with the cost increases in the last 13 years now unfortunately leaves us no other choice but to increase the prices moderately as of 01.01.2024 and to adjust them progressively to the market requirements over the next years.

At the same time as this news, we have updated our website. Under the heading "Prices & Contract" you will find both the prices up to and including 31.12.2023 and the new prices from 01.01.2024.

Tip

Use our cost simulation Excel file to help you choose the optimal price model based on your query volume and query categories from a previous month (e.g., from your last invoice).

You will receive further information in the written notification we will send you in the next few days.

Limitation of large hit lists / feedback system

In the past, search queries in wmView or wmProfile with incomplete or incorrect search criteria could lead to enormously large hit lists that were difficult to manage with several million hits.

Therefore, we have introduced a new function that offers an optimal balance between extensive information search and efficient user experience. From now on, a notification will be displayed for searches that generate more than 5 million hits:

Notification for more than 5 million hits

This notification informs you that the search has produced a huge number of results and suggests refining the search criteria to get a manageable number of results. This avoids the charging of the hit list fee.

In this context, we have also optimised and upgraded the previous feedback system for information, warnings and error messages in wmView by using sweetalert2.

Query Corporate Actions without dates

Thanks to the ability to search in five query profiles simultaneously, the Corporate Actions query profile is one of the most used profiles in WMACCESS Internet.

Last year we had already introduced the new search functionality Exclusion of cancelled events and carried out an expansion of the search criteria, integrating numerous additional WM date fields in the process.

Now, there is another new functionality that allows users to select events without dates. This is made possible by the checkbox Include events without date in the search mask and is activated by default. To search for corporate actions without dates, another search criterion such as an ISIN, WKN or position group is required in addition to the period specification.

If this search function is activated, corporate actions that do not (yet) contain any date information are also taken into account and displayed in the hit list. Events, such as conversion data for insolvency proceedings or information on class actions, which usually do not contain dates, can also be viewed in the Corporate Actions query profile thanks to this new functionality.

Search mask for the profile Corporate Actions Including events without date.

Improved printout of detail displays

The printout of more extensive wmView detail displays is now more compact and no longer contains unnecessary page breaks. This optimisation obviously also includes the common print option "Save as PDF" in modern browsers.

Intraday Master data and Corporate Actions after Easter 2023

In our News from 28.02.2023, we informed about the suspension of the intraday master and corporate actions deliveries within the scope of the "uGAT" product discontinuation as of 07.04.2023.

Until then, the uGAT product will deliver all new financial instruments added to the database, each working day according to the WM update times, with a restricted static data profile and corporate actions with various restrictions, such as, no interest payments in the income data.

In recent weeks, we have evaluated an alternative solution from WM Daten­service, which is basically the same intraday GAT set-up as was planned for EDDy_neu under the then go-live date of Easter 2023:
The previous uGAT restrictions will no longer apply, because GAT, with all information available at that time, will then be provided to us five times intraday by WM Datenservice from the "EDDy-Prod" system.

From 11 April 2023 onwards, securities master data / issuer data and corporate actions (including existing data) will be updated five times during the day between 07:00 AM and 08:30 PM.
However, this intraday update or provision does not apply to all master data and corporate actions fields. Some WM fields are not provided in the GAT, but in the WM products IFK, MIR, MIR2, PRI, EBV, IST, AIF, or A+R 1 once in the evening by WM Datenservice and updated in WMACCESS.

The WMACCESS field history will continue to be supplied only in the late evening from the evening delivery of the master data and corporate actions.

100th WM Release / Suspension of intraday Master data and Corporate Actions

On April 11, 2023 the 100. WM Release will become effective. We would like to inform you about some upcoming alterations beforehand and corresponding impacts in WMACCESS.

New fields

    No data fields will be added with this WM Release.

Frozen fields

No data fields will be frozen with this WM Release.

Suspension of intraday Master data and Corporate Actions (uGAT) as of 07.04.2023

As already stated on our EDDy_neu project page page, the product "uGAT" was to be discontinued at the same time as the EDDy_neu go-live date on 07.04.2023 and replaced at the same time by an upgraded, fully comprehensive GAT (master data and corporate actions) product provided five times per day.

On 02.02.2023 WM Datenservice announced that the go-live date of EDDy_neu will be postponed. Further information on the rescheduling of the project schedule is expected to be published at the beginning of Q2/2023.
On 16 February 2023 WM Datenservice informed us that despite the postponement of the go-live of EDDy_neu, the product "uGAT" will be discontinued as of 07.04.2023.

We are currently in contact with WM Datenservice to evaluate possible alternatives or to achieve a continuation of the uGAT product.
