Research & Development (R&D;) is the digital software and product development business of Bloomberg; the majority of all the functions and analytical programs launched by Bloomberg originate here.
Case Study: New Launchpad
The New Launchpad was a major Bloomberg product release—comprising the parallel efforts of R&D;, Financial Products, Global Data, the Chief Technology Office and more.
In R&D;, we’ve built our own best-in-class IDE designer. This investment has empowered our developers to make changes to applications intra-day. If you are familiar with industry standards like Eclipse or Visual Studio, you’ll be impressed by our designer’s capabilities.
R&D; is credited with developing the iterative process that defines the speed and agility of Bloomberg. We champion one of the most aggressive software release cycles, equipping Bloomberg with the means to deliver for any client intra-day.
