Gab's Talk: From Zero to Hero: How OSS has become Strategic in the Financial Services Industry - Gabriele Columbro, FINOS

FINOS has created an open source community in financial services, which is historically a siloed and conservative industry. But as the fintech wave continues to penetrate the industry, open source is now playing a key role in the technology strategy of both incumbent and challenger financial institutions and fintechs. Join this talk to learn how open source is truly making an impact and hear first hand from the Community at the forefront of this movement.


FINOS Mini-Summit: Accelerating Open Source Software and Standards in Financial Services (more info to come)

Financial services is a highly competitive, highly regulated industry, dealing with massive amounts of complex data while meeting the needs of demanding internal and external users, which means it’s essential to focus on both efficiency and innovation. This FINOS Mini-Summit will showcase projects that address key challenges in financial services that are also applicable to other industries. It will also highlight some of the unique and interesting challenges that financial services firms encounter while collaborating through open source, solutions the community is developing, and how you can get involved.
