Bloomberg hosts a large amount of data from 3rd-Party data providers and Exchanges, such as news, equities, research reports, earning & estimates, bonds, FX, derivatives, muni, etc. Bloomberg clients need permission (be entitled) to use the data because different data providers have different policies and rules for who can access their data, which might require data fees. 

The Data Entitlement team builds state-of-the-art software that controls real-time client access to Exchange and 3rd-Party contributed data across Bloomberg Terminal and Enterprise products.
