Groundbreaking internet insights available to Bloomberg clients

KASPR Datahaus PTY LTD, a Melbourne-based alternative data company that provides real-time information about the world’s internet infrastructure, has announced today that its Global ICT Intel Daily Data products are now available to Bloomberg Data License clients via the Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point. “We are thrilled to arrive on Bloomberg’s Enterprise Access Point, globally recognised for its high quality alternative data offerings, especially to the financial industry,” noted Co-Founder and Director of KASPR Datahaus, and Associate Professor of Economics at Monash Business School, Dr Paul Raschky, on the news. “The Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point provides a powerful, additional, way for our clients to discover and integrate our global datasets into their applications, in close to real time.” KASPR Datahaus measures daily the internet connectivity and latency of a universe of over 380 million fixed, geo-spatially identified, internet-connected end-points, covering 136 countries and 2000 sub-national regions. This enables KASPR Datahaus to provide unique, close-to-real time insights about the availability and quality of ICT infrastructure at the country, province, and city level, worldwide. The Global ICT Intel Daily data suite, KASPR Datahaus’ initial offering on the Enterprise Access point, gives clients the opportunity to explore and use six different alternative data products. “At the most granular end, our global sub-national daily product, we expect strong interest from both fundamental and technical clients looking for reliable signals of economic activity, especially from countries and regions such as China, Russia, Brazil, USA and Europe,” Dr Raschky said. KASPR Datahaus’ Global ICT Intel Daily Data products are of interest for anyone in the financial industry who uses, at least partially, an event-driven trading strategy, or is investing in financial products that are correlated with the market's volatility or liquidity. KASPR Datahaus - founded in 2018 out of Monash Business School, by Dr Klaus Ackermann, Dr Simon Angus, and Dr Raschky, on the back of a four-year research program at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia - aims to ‘measure the pulse of the world’.  By combining their multidisciplinary experience from across computer science, data science, and computational social science, the founders and directors all work closely on the company’s technology and enjoy exploring potential applications of their novel alternative data with clients. Bloomberg helps Data License clients easily integrate highly useful data in context within their analytics and existing workflows. Launched in September 2018, Bloomberg Enterprise Access Point is a web-based platform that allows Bloomberg Data License clients to discover and acquire reference, pricing, regulatory, historical and now, alternative datasets.
