Financial data is gaining traction. And you don’t need to be an investor or a stock broker to know that the world’s markets have a massive impact on our everyday lives. Whether it is the Eurozone crisis or Facebook’s historical Initial Public Offering, financial data and what media organisations make out of them has become crucial.
The question we will raise during this session is how does a financial news organisation like Bloomberg handle data on a daily basis to the point of being rewarded as Best Data Provider and Best News Provider at the Inside Market Data Awards this year.
We will give our audience a grasp of how financial data is processed and used on a daily basis and how Bloomberg News is making the most out of it by developping exciting projects in data journalism and interactive visualizations on all its multimedia platforms.
We hope that by the end of the session members of the audience will have acquired a general understanding of those topics and in some instances some detailed knowledge of how we handle data in our news-making process.
Only a keen interest in financial markets and data journalism would be necessary for this session. We aim at showcasing the process in which we handle data on a daily basis and how our news organisation is working on the future of data journalism so we believe that a non-technical audience keen enough to learn more on the topic would be able to grasp the content tackled in this presentation.
