About

Long before “Big Data” and “analytics”… before the Internet changed the way markets interacted… before computers were a critical tool for businesses… Bloomberg pioneered the practice of designing, building and applying information technology to deliver critical, actionable, financial insights, data, news and information to its customers.

Today, Bloomberg’s unrivaled technology – our software, hardware, and network – continues to help drive the world’s financial markets. Over 4,000 technologists define, architect, build, and deploy complete systems to fulfill the needs of leading financial market participants globally. This includes communications platforms, secure biometric access capabilities, real-time data, analytics, trading solutions, news and other critical information.

We operate one of the largest private networks in the world and it powers and connects our more than 325,000 subscribers in over 180 countries. More than 60 billion market ticks pass through the Bloomberg Professional service each day.

As a longtime proponent of open source technologies, our developers are also significant contributors to many projects including Apache Solr/Lucene, Apache Hadoop and OpenStack, and we publish many of our own projects on GitHub.

In 1982, with just two developers in a one-room office, Michael R. Bloomberg and our founders built the Bloomberg – the software, hardware, and network – from scratch. Three decades later, we continue the efforts of our founders to bring transparency to the global financial markets and push technological boundaries to deliver unique, valuable solutions to our customers.
