Open Source removes the traditional communication barriers between the vendor and the consumers, resulting in an experience that cannot be matched by the traditional distribution model. In this talk, Petyo Ivanov, Glue42 Product Manager, will tell the story of how a traditional enterprise software vendor transitioned towards distributing their latest product version as an open source offering. The talk will describe the concerns, the unknowns and the discoveries the company made in this journey.

FINOS Virtual "Meetups"

As part of our continued commitment to provide value to our Members and our greater Community, FINOS is expanding our use of virtual meetings and digital communication. While we know this can’t replace our in-person meetups (in New York, London, and Edinburgh), conferences (Open Source Strategy Forum - OSSF - in London and New York), and exclusive FINOS Member Meetings, we think it is a great way for our Community to share their achievements, ideas and even challenges related to open source in financial services.

FINOS will continue to produce short, regular “meetups” via WebEx (usually on a bi-weekly basis), with guest speakers we often feature in our in-person meetups and at OSSF.  April’s theme is “Overcoming barriers to open source collaboration in financial services - with practical examples.” Join us to see real examples of successful collaboration, hear a few top tips from active contributors, and learn about some innovative approaches to maintaining open source projects.
