4 | M R EP O RT MTECH Black Knight Debuts Mandatory Analytics THE COMPANY ALSO INTRODUCES WEBHOOKS AUTOMATION COMPONENT FOR ITS OPTIMAL BLUE API PLATFORM. B lack Knight Inc. has released Mandatory Ana- lytics, a data dashboard that enables investors to analyze and benchmark mandatory commitments on the secondary mortgage market. According to the Jacksonville, Florida-based company, Mandatory Analytics allows the buyers of mortgage loans on the secondary market to access an interactive, unified portal for stra- tegic analysis and benchmarking. Through the use of dynamic and configurable charts, Mandatory Analytics displays ongoing and historical pricing comparisons on all potential and actual execu- tions. Datasets can be tailored to the specific needs of the investor, promoting individualized analysis, and investors can measure the success of their executions in comparison to overall market per- formance, analyzing executions down to the loan level. Furthermore, Black Knight noted that investors can observe ongoing market trends at the monthly, weekly, or daily level, while a nightly refresh of the data creates a continuously updated view at these scenarios. Rich loan-level reporting allows users to upload data into their own infrastructure for additional, more granular and custom reporting. "Today's secondary mortgage market is one marked by intense volatility and fierce competi- tion," said Scott Happ, President of Black Knight Secondary Marketing Technologies. "One of the best tools that mandatory investors have at their disposal is access to precise, accurate, and timely data. Mandatory Analytics provides our investor clients with transparency, allowing them to identify where execution efforts are succeeding, where they are losing to the market, and why. Ultimately, Mandatory Analytics delivers the kind of actionable intelligence needed to make informed execution strategy shifts that result in greater returns."

Accessible via the Optimal Blue API Developer Portal, the API webhooks pub- lishes event-based notifications directly to a subscriber, delivering Expanding Digital Opportunities New platforms, products, and opportunities reshape the digitized playing field across the industry.
