The Waltz Team's  Presentation: Introducing Waltz, an Open Enterprise Project - August 12th, 2020

In a nutshell, Waltz is Deutsche Bank's open source project, recently contributed to FINOS, that allows you to visualize and define your organization'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 organization. Furthermore, employees are your best source of information about your technology landscape and should therefore be empowered to enhance and correct data.

Join Dave, Jessica, Kamran, and Mark from the Waltz open source team as they introduce the project, the evolution of Waltz, and what it's like to be open source contributors in banking.
