Bloomberg Offers Vendors Access to API to Promote its Market Data

Bloomberg is opening its market data interfaces for use by technology professionals globally, without cost or restriction. Bloomberg’s application programming interface, known as BLPAPI, is used daily by more than 100,000 professionals across the financial services industry and is now publicly available under a free-use license at open.bloomberg.com.

BLPAPI powers global market data distribution to desktops, workgroups and enterprise applications. In addition to Bloomberg Professional service subscribers, non-Bloomberg customers, vendors and software developers can now use BLPAPI as an alternative to proprietary technologies for market data distribution.
Bloomberg’s open API follows the release of Bloomberg’s Open Symbology (BSYM), a system to identify securities across all global asset classes. BSYM is an alternative to proprietary security identifiers that has been adopted by leading global securities exchanges and financial services organisations.

BLPAPI works with a comprehensive set of programming languages and operating systems, including Java, C, C++, .NET, COM and Perl.
