The FINOS Perspective Project - Interview With Andrew Stein of J.P. Morgan Chase
In this episode of the podcast, Tosha Ellison and Grizz Griswold (both of FINOS) interview Andrew Stein, Executive Director at J.P. Morgan Chase, and Lead Maintainer on the FINOS Perspective open source project. We discuss the project itself, its genesis, problems that Perspective solves for what users, and then pull in examples of what the project and the software can do. We also look at who should, and why they should get involved in consuming and contributing to the open source project. Andrew also gave a presentation and demo on "How to Build an Order Book Simulation with Perspective" last month - so check that out too: https://www.finos.org/blog/us-open-source-in-fintech-meetup-31-march-21 BACKGROUND FOR THE FINOS PERSPECTIVE PROJECT Perspective is an interactive visualization component for large, real-time datasets. Originally developed for J.P. Morgan's trading business, Perspective makes it simple to build real-time & user configurable analytics entirely in the browser, or in concert with Python and/or Jupyterlab. Use it to create reports, dashboards, notebooks and applications, with static data or streaming updates via Apache Arrow. As a library, Perspective provides both: A fast, memory efficient streaming query engine, written in C++ and compiled for both WebAssembly and Python, with read/write/stream/virtual support for Apache Arrow. A framework-agnostic User Interface Custom Element and Jupyterlab Widget, via WebWorker (WebAssembly) or virtually via WebSocket (Python/Node), and a suite of Datagrid and D3FC Chart plugins.

Dan Abramov of React Core Team Interview
Season 3, 1st edition of 2021 of the FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast: Dan Abramov of React Core Team Interview. So… welcome to 2021. We’re looking forward to a better year overall, even with some “interesting” beginnings. To start you out this year, while we’re working on our 2021 meetups and interviews, we want to highlight a few great discussions we’ve had within the community over the past couple of months. Our first of the year is an interview / fireside chat between Dan Abramov and James McLeod, recorded at the Open Source Strategy Forum (which is FINOS’s annual open source in financial services conference). Dan is a software engineer at Facebook, member of the React Core team, co-author of Create React App - and well regarded in the javascript community. James is our Director of Community for FINOS, and host for many of our Open Source in Fintech Podcasts and Meetups. During this interview we learn whether a project like React would work without backing from a large company like Facebook, whether Hacktoberfest raised issues for the React Core team, and how Facebook promotes InnerSource projects to open source, and more. So please enjoy this interview, check out our previous episodes, and subscribe to the podcast for some great upcoming discussions on open source, financial services, fintech, and how they all fit together.

InnerSource Commons at FINOS Open Source Readiness - Panel Discussion
Season 2, 6th and last edition of 2020 of the FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast: InnerSource Commons at the FINOS Open Source Readiness. We’re we’re working on changing up our podcast for 2021 a little, to expand the type and quality of content we bring to you through this podcast. Forged out of the “uh oh, Covid, what do we do when we can’t engage people at in-person events” that happened to everyone this year, Our podcasts in 2020, were based around interviews from the virtual meetups we started in this year. In the coming year, we will of course have interviews with FINOS project leaders, members, and other industry thought leaders, but will also start including panel discussions and fireside chats that you may have missed from some of our events, case studies and deep dives, and then we may just start including you in some of our FINOS employee chats and office hours we do with the community - basically anything that we can do to provide you with more value within the world of open source, financial services, fintech, and banking tech. So this particular episode is a preview of that. At our last Open Source Readiness meeting of 2020 (December 9, 2020), we featured the first in a series of collaborations with InnerSource Commons to promote best practice around InnerSource in financial services. InnerSource is the application of open source software development practices to internal software development projects. It's a great way for companies to increase collaboration within their organization, and for developers to gain skills that will make them effective participants in open source projects. We have definitely found this helpful within financial services in banks that are still looking to venture into open source. We had guest panelists from InnerSource Commons, Deutsche Bank, Capital One, Lloyds Banking Group, and FINOS’ Open Source Readiness project. Check our show notes for a complete list of panelists and bios. Sit back and learn as our friend Danese Cooper, president and founder of Innersource Commons, and a multi-decade veteran of the open source world leads a discussion on Innersource patterns for the Financial Services Industry.

Debunking Common Fears about Open Source - Danese Cooper, InnerSource Commons & NearForm
In this ninth edition of the FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast, FINOS Director of Community James McLeod interviews Nearform's VP of Strategic Initiatives, Danese Cooper after their FINOS Virtual Meetup presentation on July 1, 2020. Head to the FINOS.org site to see the video of the presentation, along with Danese's slides. How can a regulated-industry business get ready for Open Source? That’s really a multi-layered question because of special requirements created by those regulations. The process of developing Open Source readiness through an internal InnerSource practice has been a focus in FinTech for most of the past decade, thanks to success stories from the likes of Lloyd’s Bank. How does the fact that FinTech companies are subject to strict regulation play into undertaking such a transformation? FINOS’s James McLeod was tweeting with Danese Cooper about a podcast they’d recorded when a follower asked that seemingly simple question, and out of the resulting conversation comes this webinar! We’ll be looking at issues such as PCI-compliance, GDPR-compliance, distributed-ledger systems such as Blockchain, and new regulations surrounding Transfer Pricing and exploring strategies to mitigate risk and what lessons can be learned from innovative new companies. Danese will be speaking at the FINOS & Linux Foundation Open Source Strategy Forum (OSSF).

EPAM GLUE Project: Developing a Unified Entity and Data Model for the Buy-Side - Heiko Sundermann, EPAM - 29 April 20
In this fourth edition of the FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast, FINOS Director of Community James McLeod interviews EPAM's VP & Head of Digital Engagement Practice for Wealth and Asset Management, Heiko Sundermann after his FINOS Virtual Meetup presentation on April 29, 2020. Head to the FINOS.org site to see the video of the presentation, along with Heiko's slides. Guest speaker: Heiko Sundermann, VP, Head of Digital Engagement Practice for wealth and asset management for EPAM, will be presenting on the "EPAM GLUE Project: Developing a Unified Entity and Data Model for the Buy-Side". Buy-side firms are under enormous pressure not to miss out on the digitalisation wave. Changing client demands, regulatory pressure and the rapid adoption of structured quantitative investment management approaches are fuelling investment into digitalization and data driven Asset & Wealth Management. Buy-side firms are often held back by legacy infrastructure and inappropriate data storage. Open API architectures provide a route to adopt best of breed solutions and leverage specialized fintech offerings, but the integration costs of these approaches tend to be costly. Traditional Data-Warehousing approaches are also not suited to the performance needed for modern digital and analytical solutions; they struggle to adhere to the stringent regulatory requirements inherent in data-privacy, cross-border and data lineage. EPAM have created an investment management eco-system delivering a comprehensive set of components along the investment management value chain developed by EPAM or by fintech partners. The foundation of this ECO-System is EPAM GLUE which is a unified entity and data model serving as a common semantic layer to all components. EPAM GLUE provides the flexibility to model hierarchical data structures as well as the complex legal entity structure that buy-side firms are facing. Concurrently it addresses the problems of data-security, auditability and privacy which minimises integration costs and implementation risks.
