The FINOS Community recently celebrated a great milestone, by releasing version 1.0 of the FDC3 (Financial Desktop Connectivity and Collaboration Consortium) Standard.
Rob Daly, of Markets Media, interviewed FINOS Executive Director, Gabriele Columbro about the Community's accomplishment.
Here's a snippet:
“All in all, things took less than a year since FINOS launched for FDC3 to reach version 1.0” Gabriele Columbro, executive director at FINOS, told Markets Media. “It’s a remarkable achievement considering you have a lot of competitors, vendors and financial institutions, working together...”
...Over the next few months, the Foundation expects to turn its focus towards implementation, certification, and community building.
“Given its industry-wide relevance, FINOS will need to move forward with a formal certification program where vendors can affirm that they are compliant with the standard,” said Columbro. “We want to make sure that this does not become a quasi-standard.”
