There couldn’t have been a better backdrop for Bloomberg’s Tom Secunda to talk about the company’s data enterprise products than at the top of the Metropolitan Museum of Art – where Tomas Sarceno’s ‘Cloud City’ sculpture of interconnected modules (which very much resembled the idea of cloud computing) stood.

Bloomberg’s reception and private viewing for clients and staff was to celebrate the launch of its Enterprise Management Business and the recent acquisition of Polarlake, the cutting-edge technology start-up from Dublin.

Against the backdrop of a rare cloudless sky and landscape of Manhattan skyscrapers, guests mingled within the multi-story, interconnected geometric series of connected glass and steel pods. At the evening’s mid-point, Secunda, Bloomberg’s co-founder and head of the Financial Products and Solutions who was recently ranked #1 in Institutional Investor’s Top 50 Technology innovators, addressed the crowd and shared ideas about the value of managed services for the enterprise.

“Bloomberg is tackling the challenges of EDM so our clients can devote valuable resources towards the business of making money – instead of maintaining a market data infrastructure.”

‘We opened our platform and have invited clients, partners and competitors to integrate with Bloomberg technologies, leverage our open solutions and subject-matter expertise.”

Stay tuned for more to come on Bloomberg EDM. More information about Bloomberg EDM can be found on the group’s website.

Saraceno’s is on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art rooftop garden from now until Nov. 4.
