Webinar: Open Source in Finance – Balancing Security & Scalability

Open source technology’s adoption is picking up pace in the financial world as more and more organisations are seeing its potential. However, the very nature of the technology can cause security concerns, especially as companies scale up using it. In the latest The Fintech Times webinar, Percona, Finos and StandardDAO discuss how open source technology’s security and scalability can be balanced to create a recipe for success.

In the financial world, it’s no secret that organisations are constantly looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve. From disruptors to established players, institutions are increasingly embracing the power of open source software and standards in finance.

This adoption has allowed them to accelerate their product development timelines, meet the ever-growing demands of regulatory bodies, exceed customer expectations, and stay competitive in an increasingly crowded market.

In this webinar, Francis Bignell, journalist and lead LatAm correspondent at The Fintech Times, moderates a discussion with Michal Nosek, senior architect in the Percona Solutions Engineering team, Gabriele Columbro, founder and executive director at Finos, and Aaron Rafferty, CEO of StandardDAO.

  • What are some key barriers when launching fintech products?
