The Open Source Strategy Forum 2018

The Open Source Strategy Forum is a two-day event to empower financial technology professionals to accelerate open source collaboration at their companies.

Open Source Strategy Forum 2018

Day One will feature three tracks, each going deep on a key topic area:

Business Value & Strategy: how to drive innovation with open source, the bottom-line impact of open source, recruitment and retention, and developing an open source strategy. Audience: Executives & managers.

• Policy & Process: the elements of a successful open source policy, open source processes for security & compliance, and building institutional knowledge for long-term success. Audience: IT managers, legal & compliance professionals.

• Tools & Technology:  compliant interaction with open source communities, and automating license compliance and security scans. Audience: IT developers, architects, and engineers

Day Two will feature extended training sessions on particular technologies and products enabling compliant open source development, including license-compliance tools, compliance automation for cloud-based deployment, and source code management to enforce compliance.


Financial services firms make extensive use of open source, but few are taking full advantage of this incredible resource. By becoming strategic contributors to open source projects, companies can decrease development costs, improve security, attract developers, and innovate faster. OSSF is designed to get you there faster, with practical sessions focused on building the business, process, and technical knowledge to implement an effective open source program, and introductions to the tools and vendors that can help.


The Fintech Open Source Foundation (FINOS) is an independent nonprofit organization focused on promoting open innovation within financial services. The Foundation is home to nine collaborative programs, including the FDC3 Program for financial desktop interoperability and the Financial Objects Program to promote standardization of financial data objects.

The Open Source Readiness Program helps financial firms adopt best-practice policies, processes, and technology for open source compliance.
