Introducing Waltz the Open Enterprise Project
Waltz Public Instance:

Waltz is Deutsche Bank's open source project, that has been contributed to FINOS, that allows you to visualise and define your organisation's technology landscape. Think of Waltz as a structured Wiki for your enterprise architecture.

A core belief behind Waltz is that technology information should be accessible by everyone within your organisation. Furthermore, employees are your best source of information about your technology landscape and should therefore be empowered to enhance and correct data.

David Watkins and Jessica Woodland-Scott from Deutsche Bank introduce Waltz, the 2022 evolution of the project, and what it's like to be open source contributors in banking.

Getting Waltz Up and Running in your Financial Services Setting

Throughout 2022 the Waltz project community has worked tirelessly to make Waltz more accessible to banks and open source development by utilising Juju, Charms and Docker.

Pedro Leão da Cruz, Product Lead from Canonical, alongside the Waltz team, gives guided tour of how to get Waltz up and running in your financial services setting using containers and kubernetes.

During the demo, FINOS and the Waltz team announced a Public Waltz Demo Instance hosted on AWS that's fully built from new Waltz releases using a GitHub driven SDLC!
