Thomson Eikon is a financial database with company and market information for companies worldwide. It requires a username and password that can be obtained by contacting Mary Martin: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It offers almost all the same financial information service, including company data, market data, news, country and economic data, analytics and trading tools. It includes Datastream with Worldscope. Datastream contains historical, global coverage of equities, Indices, stock markets, derivatives, commodities, futures, currencies, options, bond markets, exchange rates, company financials, and economic data. The database is updated daily, and historical equity information goes back as far as 1973, though coverage varies across countries and types of content. There are two interfaces: Web Access (using the login) and a download option for the Excel addin. The Excel addin allows one to access the data through Excel, and to create templates with more detail than Thomson One allows.
What is the difference? These are different interfaces, and the Thomson Eikon can be accessed using browsers other than Internet Explorer. In addition, some features have not migrated to Thomson Eikon as of May 2017.
