OPEN SOURCE READINESS OVERVIEW

OSR is a key strategic initiative for FINOS. It aims to fully enable Members and the Financial Services community at large with the tools and policies needed to strategically address the legal, cultural  and technical challenges of corporate open source engagement in a highly regulated and historically siloed industry.

BUSINESS FOCUS

This program will enable your financial institution to efficiently engage and derive value from open source communities, ultimately driving faster innovation. Access to world class open source experts and to industry peers will drastically reduce time and effort needed to build a successful open source practice.

  • Tools to enable developer access to GitHub in a secure manner compliant with protocols in financial services firms

FOCUS AREAS

  • Foster adoption of Reference FOSS Policy for Financial Services
  • Kick off Open Source Readiness Working Group as forum to socialize industry wide OSS readiness requirements and solutions
