At the heart of our business at Bloomberg is connecting decision makers to business and financial information, trading analytics, news, and insight. As our industry has evolved, the way our clients consume data has changed. Today our large enterprise clients are interested in the tight integration of Bloomberg products with their own highly sophisticated, critically important systems. To meet their constantly evolving integration needs, Bloomberg Connectivity and Integration (BCI) group develops solutions focused on high efficiency and low-latency secure data transfer over a distributed infrastructure, and supports a wide array of products including elastic connectivity, batch and real-time data feeds, and data transformation services. 

The Data Acquisition Solutions team provides Bloomberg's financial data in the integration pipeline between critical client application and Bloomberg trading and financial analytic applications in real-time, as well as delivering Bloomberg's financial data to clients from financial institutions in real-time via API based solutions. We use both Bloomberg proprietary messaging infrastructure as well as third-party or open source messaging systems to provide interface to our internal client applications while our external clients use Bloomberg proprietary API framework (a.k.a. BLPAPI) or REST API to connect with our orchestrated or choreographed back end systems. The team focuses on building robust, scalable and supportable data acquisition and enrichment software to meet both internal and external data needs, as well as ensuring accurate data entitlement check and data usage metering take place in the underlying integration pipelines. We work on critically important, distributed, high-performance software that seamlessly integrates core trading and analytic servers in major investment banks and funds with Bloomberg data and services, as well as provides financial data to both Bloomberg Terminal users and servers in key financial institutions around the globe.
