Open Source Sustainability and Our Corporate Social Responsibility - Colin Eberhardt, Scott Logic
In this episode of the podcast, Grizz "sits down" with Colin Eberhardt, Technology Director at Scott Logic about his upcoming talk at the Open Source Strategy Forum in London October 5th. They discuss Colin's background, modern software supply chain issues, and then how to drive open source to be more sustainable, for financial services and beyond. Open Source Sustainability and Our Corporate Social Responsibility - Colin Eberhardt, Scott Logic Modern software is increasingly complex, made up of hundreds or thousands of open source components, hidden away in deeply-nested dependency trees. Just how much do we know about these open source components that are an integral part of our products? What are the risks associated with their usage, and our exposure? Within the financial services industry, most often the solution is to build up a robust defence against these perils. Security scans, licence checkers - creating a walled-garden that harm the wider open source ecosystem. In this talk Colin will take a closer look at the make-up of modern software supply chains - where this code comes from, who authored it and how it is distributed. Ultimately asking ourselves the question “is this sustainable?” Despite numerous efforts to address this challenge; crowdfunding, sponsorship and highlighting critical infrastructure projects, this problem is growing. To solve it we need a reset in how we view this precious and fragile asset. Much like the environment, grass-roots activism can only go so far, to really make a difference large corporations need to wake up to their responsibility and make genuine and tangible commitments. Colin divides his time between leading the R&D team and providing advisory consultancy to clients. Widely recognized as a thought leader, Colin has a reputation throughout development circles as an expert in mobile technologies. He has also directed the team that developed a Securities Lending System for one of the world’s most instantly recognizable banks. A published author, blogger and tech visionary, Colin still finds time to practice his considerable skills as a 7-ball juggler.

In this episode of the podcast, Grizz "sits down" with Andrew Aitken, Global Open Source Leader at Wipro about his upcoming talk at the Open Source Strategy Forum in London October 5th. They discuss Andrew's background and position as lead on the FINOS Open Source Readiness SIG; what Open Source Readiness is; and then a little insight into his talk about The FINOS Open Source Maturity Model and How to Apply It. The FINOS Open Source Maturity Model and How to Apply It - Andrew Aitken, Wipro Ltd. As financial services organizations continue to adopt open source at an ever-increasing pace there becomes a general recognition that it is a strategic asset, rather than simply a collection of ad-hoc components. Open source can drive significant benefits for an organization across multiple dimensions including strategic, financial, organizational, and technological if managed effectively. But, understanding how to capture those benefits while minimizing any potential risks can be a daunting task. It starts with understanding where you are as an organization on the open source maturity curve and the associated traits and attributes and how to identify and move to the most appropriate level for your company. FINOS, working with Wipro, has implemented an open source maturity model and provided the tools to help all financial services organizations conduct a self-assessment and create a model and plans for how to move to the optimal level for them. This talk will introduce the maturity model, the open source assessment surveys, and other tools and explain how to use them so every member can create their own open source maturity map Andrew Aitken is the GM and Global Open Source Practice Leader for Wipro Ltd., a premier global systems integrator, and a leading open source strategy consultant. In his 22 years of experience he launched the industry’s first open source strategy consulting firm, Olliance Group (acquired by Black Duck Software), launched the Open Source Think Tank held in Napa, CA and Paris, France - a highly regarded event regularly attended by over 100 top open source thought leaders for over 10 years. Andrew has advised organizations such as the White House Office of CIO, Microsoft and IBM, more than 20 startups and VC firms, and dozens of other enterprises on their open source strategies.

FDC3 Fast and Easy - Kris West
In this episode of the podcast, Grizz "sits down" with Kris West, Principal Engineer at Cosaic, about his upcoming talk at the Open Source Strategy Forum in London October 5th. They discuss Kris's background and position at lead on the FDC3 project; what FDC3 is and who it should matter to; and then a little insight into the FDC3 Workbench that Coasic is contributing to FINOS. FDC3 Fast and Easy: Introducing the FDC3 Workbench for Vendors - Kris West, Cosaic - Kris West As desktop interoperability gains momentum, app vendors must prepare for expectations from clients who look for FDC3-enabled applications to join their integrated desktops. Meeting FDC3 standards allows your app to easily interoperate with other applications (without the need to coordinate with their developers first) and therefore secure a spot on clients' smart desktops. Getting your application FDC3-enabled is easier than ever with the new FINOS-contributed project, FDC3 Workbench. This new developer tool makes it easy to verify that your application communicates correctly with other apps using FDC3 protocol, while additionally providing a fully-featured desktop agent—Finsemble—to develop in. Don’t be left out of the interop movement—join this session to see how this open-sourced workbench can assist you today.

Debunking Common Fears About Open Source | Danese Cooper
In this episode of the podcast Danese Cooper, Founder & Chair of InnerSource Commons, and long time open source veteran discusses Debunking Common Fears about Open Source (a great segway into our Open Source Strategy Forums upcoming in London and New York in October and November - that deal with open source in the regulated industry of financial services).  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. Slides PDF Link Danese's Bio: Ms. Danese Cooper has been the Head of Open Source Software at PayPal, Inc. since February 2014. She has served as inaugural Chairperson of the Node.js Foundation from June 2015-2017. Ms. Cooper previously served as the CTO of Wikimedia Foundation, Inc., as Chief Open Source Evangelist for Sun and as Sr. Director of Open Source Strategies for Intel. She concentrates on creating healthy open source communities and has served on the Boards of the Drupal Association, the Open Source Initiative, the Open Hardware Association and has advised Mozilla and the Apache Software Foundation. She also runs a successful open source consultancy which counts Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, SETI Foundation, Harris Corporation and Numenta as clients. She has been known to knit through meetings.

Understanding Copyleft - Aaron Williamson
On this episode of the podcast we talk open source readiness, compliance, and how to understand the copyleft license. Copyleft licenses like the GNU GPL come with a higher compliance burden than more permissive licenses, because they require licensees to provide source code to recipients -- sometimes just for the open source component, and sometimes for any derivative work produced by the licensee. These licenses therefore raise the thorniest issues of license compliance. In this podcast, FINOS Open Source Readiness lead Aaron Williamson discusses: What is a derivative work of a software project What constitutes distribution under copyright law Incompatibility issues between copyleft and other licenses The differences between GPL versions 2 and 3 Aaron Williamson: williamson.legal PDF slides to follow along: https://www.finos.org/hubfs/OSR%20Meeting%202020-07-21.pdf Video version: https://www.finos.org/blog/understanding-copyleft-aaron-williamson FINOS Open Source License Compliance Handbook: https://www.finos.org/open-source-license-compliance-handbook Open Source Strategy Forum - https://bit.ly/3l2cs3n Members Meeting & OSSF London - 4-5 October - https://bit.ly/3x2JX8c Members Meeting & OSSF NYC - 9-10 November - https://bit.ly/2TCETJV ►► FINOS Store (use code FINOSWELCOME20 for 20% off) | Become A Contributor ►► Visit FINOS www.finos.org ►► Get In Touch: info@finos.org

Assessing the Health of an Open Source Project - Open Source Readiness
In this episode of the podcast, Dave Neary, Red Hat Community Architect gives a presentation on Assessing the Health of an Open Source Project: What are the things to look out for when evaluating the community health of a project (and how does community health factor into long-term sustainability)? SHOW NOTES Talk Description: A healthy open source project is one that you expect to be around in several years, and will continue to develop, with new features, regular updates, and conscientious maintainers. Healthy projects demonstrate open practices, use open infrastructure to engage with their users, and cultivate an open culture, with the goal of becoming more sustainable. In this presentation, we will describe some of the key factors you can examine to evaluate if a project is healthy, and can be expected to be around in the long term. As the number of these factors a project has going for it increases, its health rating, and as a result the confidence you can have in it, increases too.

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.

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).

Open source already plays a key role in many financial services organizations, and with its ability to drive innovation, support organizational and cultural change and reduce costs, it’s going to become an even larger part of the post-Covid IT landscape. A robust and enterprise-wide open source strategy is key to maximizing the benefits of open source while managing any potential risks.. Open source can be a key to accelerating the journey to the new normal.

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.

OSinFin 001: FDC3 1.1 - Nick Kolba
In this first edition of the FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast, FINOS Director of Community James McLeod interviews FDC3 Project Lead Nick Kolba after the first FINOS Virtual Meetup on April 1, 2020. The FDC3 community is delighted to announce the release of FDC3 1.1! In its 2+ years as an open source organization, FDC3 has brought key financial firms together to set, and put into production, standards for application interoperability.  As we approach the release of the FDC3 1.1 standard, this webinar will look at what's new in FDC3 and how we got there through a collaborative, open source approach. This is the first point update to the FDC3 standard since 1.0 was released a year ago. 1.1 has been an extremely collaborative process with active contribution and input from 10 different firms and a lot of input from teams putting 1.0 into production.  We especially want to give a huge thanks to all of the stakeholders who worked so hard to make this happen! Be sure to check out the presentation that Nick Kolba, FDC3 Project Lead/Chair, gave during the FINOS virtual Meetup on April 1, 2020. It includes great information on FDC3 1.1. As always, this is a community effort and we welcome and encourage everyone to get involved! You can do so by reaching out to us on Github or at fdc3@finos.org.
