This latest development for 17a-4’s DataParser leverages the SQL database through Open Data Base Connectivity (ODBC) to retrieve content for format and ingestion into an archive. DataParser for SQL ensures corporations are retaining all the content that falls under current requirements, including database content. SEC Rule 17a-4(f) (3) (vi), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Equal Pay Act, Executive Order 11246, Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and other associated regulations lay the guidelines for data retention policies.

Clients are also taking advantage of the DataParser for SQL ability to customize data into user-friendly formats using special XML template files.

“The SEC and other regulators mandate that electronic records be captured and retained in accordance with regulations. At this time, many firms are unaware that content in order management systems, trading systems and other real-time databases do have retention requirements,” says 17a-4 llc’s Managing Partner, Charles Weeden.
