FDX OVERVIEW

This is a program to define and implement high-productivity end-to-end development tooling, workflows and environments that Foundation members and the community at large can leverage, delivering faster results and simplifying evaluation and consumption.

BUSINESS FOCUS

FDX will deliver technology and an open software development lifecycle to improve fintech developer productivity. The very diverse representation enables this Community to solve challenges typical for a regulated industry, delivering ODP both as a high value developer platform and a reference architecture for the FINOS Community.

SAMPLE USE CASES

Use cases include:

  • Financial institution developers and infrastructure owners providing real life requirements for a secure and compliant open source development toolchain
  • Fintech technology and cloud vendors; and data providers building fintech dev tooling and offering services via ODP

FOCUS AREAS

  • Define requirements for a compliant high productivity fintech open source development workflow
  • Grow features and adoption of the Open Developer Platform (ODP)
  • Explore the opportunity to offer Open Data to our developer Community

OPEN SOURCE READINESS PROJECT

The Open Source Readiness (OSR) Project is a key strategic initiative for FINOS. Many financial services firms are just beginning to engage with open source as more than consumers and are grappling with the legal, cultural, and technical challenges involved for the first time. The OSR Program provides information, practical tools, and support to FINOS members and the broader financial services industry as they navigate these challenges.

OSR RESOURCES

  • The Open Source License Compliance Handbook is a guide for complying with a wide range of open source licenses in common use cases. It's an invaluable resource for enabling developers to manage the most common compliance tasks without unnecessary legal and compliance review. Download the Handbook.
  • The Reference FOSS Policy is a comprehensive model corporate policy for consuming, contributing to, and publishing open source software. It's a great starting point for firms adopting their first open source policy or revising an existing one. Download the Word version.
  • Our whitepaper on Business Value of Open Source in Financial Services lays out the business case for open source engagement and is a helpful aid for pitching open source to decision-makers on the business side of finance firms.
