While adoption has been on par with other industries, financial services has been historically lagging behind in Open Source contributions and engagement in the Community. This has been largely due to the highly regulated and competitive nature of the industry creating a cultural environment that didn’t encourage or enable - or frankly saw the value in - open source contributions. Over the last 5 years, the context is drastically changing, as the industry experiences an open source renaissance, that culminated in major open source contributions from firms of the likes of Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, and Citi to FINOS, the Fintech Open Source Foundation. In this session, Gabriele Columbro, Executive Director of FINOS, will walk you through the key milestones that brought the industry here, highlighting critical factors, motivators and proven-to-be-successful tactics that have brought historically very conservative firms to embrace open collaboration. As a bonus, Gabriele will share initial highlights of the first annual State of Open Source In Financial Services survey run by the FINOS in collaboration with the Linux Foundation research in 2021.
