Programs are the fundamental building blocks of our community. It's through programs that industry participants typically first become engaged with FINOS, often leading to lasting cross-firm collaborations aimed at solving common challenges.
Programs are a cohesive set of open, collaborative initiatives focused on addressing common business problems across the financial services industry. Programs are proposed by Members, but comprise Open Source Projects and Working Groups open to anyone. Programs are operated transparently and independently under the oversight and steering of the Board of Directors. Read more about the program structure further down the page.
The FINOS programs present opportunities for organizations to consume, use, and put into production community developed code or protocols that help address challenges faced by the financial services industry. Developers and analysts have the opportunity to participate in standards forums, shaping and driving adoption of standards, as well as contributing code across a range of programs addressing a variety of needs.
Check out our program overview or the list of active programs below to see how FINOS programs can support your business and technology strategy. And don't hesitate to get in touch directly with our Community.
Programs are the community's mechanism through which business issues, market opportunities, and use cases are grouped together. It's through the program structure that FINOS members and contributors cooperate, specifically by creating and organizing themselves into projects and working groups.
A program may have multiple projects and working groups.
