NumFOCUS Sponsors are securing the future of scientific computing.
Our Corporate Sponsors
Bloomberg connects influential decision makers to a dynamic network of information, people and ideas. Our strength – quickly and accurately delivering data, news and analytics through innovative technology – is at the core of everything we do. Key participants in the financial markets depend on Bloomberg’s core product, the Terminal, to trade, manage risk, consume information, and navigate time-critical decisions. This means we must leverage the best technologies available for all of our projects. As a longtime proponent of open source technologies, our developers are also significant contributors to many projects including Apache Solr/Lucene, Apache Hadoop and OpenStack, and we publish many of our own projects on GitHub. We are always looking for new ways to work with, analyze, and display our data and often choose Jupyter to rapidly develop prototypes and share results with others across our data science, machine learning and quantitative research teams. Bringing Jupyter to Bloomberg also means we are actively contributing to the community.
Thousands of Microsoft engineers use, contribute to, and release open source every day across every platform, from the cloud to client operating systems, programming languages and more. We recognize that multiple projects under the NumFOCUS umbrella are included in those projects that we use on a regular basis for various data science workloads across the company. As such, we are happy to support NumFOCUS as a Partner to help support its projects to further their goals.
IBM leverages emerging technologies to address real and current business needs of our clients. We do this by understanding the current landscape of emerging technologies and by keeping our eyes firmly on the technological horizon–and by listening to our clients, early adopters, and thought leaders to understand how those technologies and concepts can be utilized today.
About Two Sigma
At Two Sigma, we use Open Source Software, and we’re passionate about giving back to the programming community. We want to make sure that the OSS projects that we and so many others rely on will still be functional far into the future. Supporting OSS can take many forms: making substantial contributions to projects we use regularly, open sourcing tools we’ve developed in house, and financially sponsoring non-profits that contribute to a healthy open source ecosystem. That’s why we are a Corporate Partner of NumFOCUS. Two Sigma is proud to support NumFOCUS sponsored projects pandas and Jupyter.
