Eagle Alpha, the leading provider of alternative data solutions to the buy side, is pleased to announce a new Data Analytics partnership with Omney Data. As part of the new partnership Omney Data will be the latest third-party dataset onboarded to the Eagle Edge platform.
Eagle Edge is an alternative data platform that makes alternative datasets more readily consumable by the buyside through intuitive dashboards that are tailored to each individual dataset. Through Eagle Edge, Data Analytics clients currently have access to online search data, consumer transaction data, social media data and a number of pricing datasets, and the range of datasets is growing rapidly.
Omney Data produce a proprietary dataset composed of three retailer-specific data series designed to track components of online pricing activity:
- Change in full ticket prices.
- Change in markdown rate (excluding promotions).
- Change in promotional discount rate.
The sum of these metrics is designed to track Average Unit Retail (AUR).
Omney Data source data from both websites and emails, using their own proprietary process to compile raw product prices and promotions.
At launch the Omney Data dataset will cover 10 US apparel retail stocks, with further names targeted for release in early 2019.
As well as hosting Omney Data on Eagle Edge, the Data Analytics partnership will also see Eagle Alpha publish reports and case studies on their data to demonstrate the value of the data to the buyside.

Omney Data fits perfectly with the goal of Data Analytics to provide analysts with the most powerful and actionable datasets in an easily digested format.” said Ronan Crosson, Director of Data Analytics at Eagle Alpha.
