Datastream via Virtual Eikon

Datastream is integrated into Eikon. You can access it from any location with Virtual Eikon. The current product will be discontinued in the foreseeable future, and we will switch to the Alternative Workspace for Students (LSEG) within a year. The successor product will also be available in a virtualised environment to enable mobile use. However, the Datastream add-on will be limited to 10 million data points per month.
