Bloomberg has a reputation for providing the most accurate, comprehensive, and valuable financial information. That’s why many of our clients seek to leverage Bloomberg data in their custom applications. Our team makes that possible.
We build and enhance the software development kits (SDKs), libraries available in C++, Java, C#, and Python, that allow software developers to create proprietary enterprise applications that consume Bloomberg’s financial market data - the same real-time market, historical, and premium reference data available with the Bloomberg Professional service (the Terminal). The APIs and SDKs are also used by clients for privately publishing and consuming their own (non-Bloomberg) data while leveraging the global Bloomberg infrastructure for efficient, timely data distribution.
These toolkits, known as the BLPAPI, are used daily by more than 100,000 Bloomberg customers to power global market data distribution to enterprise applications worldwide. If you’re a polyglot looking to looking to leverage your expertise of API design, threading, and large-scale software architecture, read on.
