You've seen the headlines. Financial firms are fined millions of dollars when just one employee does something they shouldn't. It can be as serious as insider trading or as seemingly innocent as an inappropriate instant message. Keeping track of who is saying, doing, and trading what is a daunting task for compliance officers, especially with the explosion in the volume and variety of data produced by communications and trading platforms.

That’s where Bloomberg Compliance comes in. Comprised of both Bloomberg Vault Archive and Bloomberg Surveillance, Bloomberg Compliance provides a single platform for compliant storage and reconstruction of our customer’s communication, collaboration, and financial transaction data. More than 1,000 organizations use our product to manage and archive their enterprise communications and collaboration data, including email, instant message (IM), mobile, files, trade and documents, voice data and social media. Our multi-tenant cloud processes 300 million messages daily and stores about 90 billion archived objects, and we are looking to grow significantly in the next two years.

Within Compliance we index more than 700GB of data per day and our web applications allow compliance officers to search that data across multiple years. We are in the process of modernizing our technology stack, utilizing open source frameworks such as React, TypeScript, and Node. In conjunction we are redesigning and rewriting our server-side APIs and infrastructure to provide optimized and scalable access to the vast amount of data we maintain.
