Open Source Has made its entrance
In 2017 the financial services industry asked: What is open source and why does it matter? This interest in open source itself is a huge milestone for an industry filled with legal and regulatory hurdles. Not only was open source a topic of interest in 2017, but banks and FinTech start-ups took it a step further – realizing the benefits of collaboration, they began to embrace open source and integrate it into their core strategy and value proposition.

Last week at FinJS London, I had the chance to share the Foundation’s vision for an open source fintech ecosystem. As usual, our friends at OpenFin did a terrific job with the event and I had great conversations with folks from banks, startups, and vendors. Here I share my thoughts, as well as the video of the presentation.
Last month, we at the Symphony Software Foundation, were proud to host the Open Source Strategy Forum in New York City. We were joined by over 300 industry professionals from financial services, financial technology, open source, and beyond. With keynotes delivered by whurley (Goldman Sachs), Amber Baldet (J.P. Morgan), John Stecher (Barclays), Nithya Ruff (Comcast), Joe McCann (NodeSource), Jim Jagielski (CapitalOne), and others, complete with 30+ talks, it was an incredibly valuable day of content and networking. But most importantly we built the identity of a new Community, one that will drive open innovation in the industry. Thanks to all of you who joined us there.
