FINOS Mini-Summit: Accelerating Open Source Software and Standards in Financial Services

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

FINOS is a community of developers, technologists, and industry leaders from major financial institutions, tech firms, fintechs, and consultancies. This is a highly competitive, highly regulated industry, dealing with massive amounts of complex data while meeting the needs of demanding internal and external users, which means it’s essential to focus on both efficiency and innovation. This FINOS Mini-Summit will showcase projects that address key challenges in financial services that are also applicable to other industries. It will also highlight some of the unique and interesting challenges that financial services firms encounter while collaborating through open source, solutions the community is developing, and how you can get involved.

FINOS Mini-Summit Agenda

  • Introduction to Mini-Summit - Tosha Ellison, COO, FINOS 
  • The challenges and opportunities of building open source communities in the highly regulated financial services industry - James McLeod, Director of Community, FINOS
  • Why we need open sourced Data Models in the Financial Industry - Panelist information to be announced
    • Panelists from the Financial Sector will talk about the value of shared data models in the industry and how they can significantly impact collaboration and efficiency.
      • Values: Fostering Collaboration across industry participants and regulators, positive impact on agility & time to market, cost reduction
      • Benefits of having a 3rd party hosting the shared models
      • How open sourcing Alloy makes shared modeling possible + expedites & fosters collaboration in the industry
  • Building Highly Reliable Software More Efficiently - Stephen Goldbaum, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley
    • Building highly reliable software should be easier.  Studies estimate that there are 10 bugs for every 1,000 lines of code a developer writes.  That has led to a plethora of tools to test and assess the quality of the code we write.  While these are great for the checks once the coding is written, there are still great opportunities to improve the coding process itself.  Dependable software can be written without requiring massive amounts of developer effort, elite teams, or verification experts and new languages and tools are paving the way.
    • In this talk we demonstrate leveraging three powerful open-source projects to efficiently write dependable systems:  Microsoft’s Bosque language for writing ultra-dependable application code; Morphir, a FINOS project recently contributed by Morgan Stanley, for efficiently producing multi-platform code from pure business logic; and Microsoft’s Dapr for running applications in a robust and cloud-ready infrastructure.  In particular, we will explore how these tools promote reliability and correctness while still being easily usable by development teams.
  • Streaming, cross-sectional data visualization in Jupyterlab with Perspective and Apache Arrow - Junyuan Tan, J.P. Morgan
    • At J.P. Morgan, traders, researchers, and engineers use Jupyterlab and Perspective, a high performance streaming data visualization library, for analytics across large, real-time datasets. Junyuan Tan demonstrates how Perspective and Apache Arrow can be used to accumulate, dissect and visualize streaming data - all within a Jupyter Notebook.
    • Many data visualization libraries are built with static data in mind, where everything is known before the visualization is created. Analyzing data streams in real-time, however, is a crucial part of many industries. Combining JupyterLab's ease-of-use and flexibility with Perspective, a high-performance streaming data visualization library, users can rapidly prototype, analyze, and visualize results from a multitude of data sources both live and static.
