responses wanted: FINOS 2021 State of Open Source in Finance Services Survey

FINOS and its research partners, Linux Foundation Research, Scott Logic, WIPRO, and GitHub, are conducting a survey as part of a research project on the state of open source adoption, contribution, and readiness in the financial services industry. This survey and report seeks to explore open source within the context of financial services organizations; including banks, asset managers, and hedge funds but will be designed as a resource to be used by all financial services organizations, with the goal to make this an annual survey with a year-on-year tracing of metrics. 

Your input here is very important to the community and industry.
