Bloomberg runs on data. It's our business and our product. From the biggest banks to the most elite hedge funds, financial institutions need timely, accurate data to capture opportunities and evaluate risk in fast-moving markets.

The engine is designed to be an embeddable library to enable domain providers ability to perform BQL compatible analytics closer to data.
