The FDC3 community is delighted to announce the release of FDC3 1.1!

In its 2+ years as an open source organization, FDC3 has brought key financial firms together to set, and put into production, standards for application interoperability.  As we approach the release of the FDC3 1.1 standard, this webinar will look at what's new in FDC3 and how we got there through a collaborative, open source approach.

This is the first point update to the FDC3 standard since 1.0 was released a year ago. 1.1 has been an extremely collaborative process with active contribution and input from 10 different firms and a lot of input from teams putting 1.0 into production.  We especially want to give a huge thanks to all of the stakeholders who worked so hard to make this happen!

Be sure to check out the presentation that Nick Kolba, FDC3 Project Lead/Chair, gave during the FINOS virtual Meetup on April 1, 2020. It includes great information on FDC3 1.1.

As always, this is a community effort and we welcome and encourage everyone to get involved! You can do so by reaching out to us on Github or at

The FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast is part of our continued commitment to provide value to our Members and our greater Community. In these (usually bi-weekly) sessions we speak with members of the FINOS community about specific open source projects and interesting topics at the cross section of financial services and open source. So far, our industry experts have discussed practical applications of and their real-world experiences with a range of open source projects including desktop interoperability, low code platforms, synthetic data, and data modeling. They’ve also discussed best practices for inner source, common myths about open source and why commercial companies choose to introduce open source offerings. Tune in to hear what comes next.
