Case Study: FINOS Legend
In November 2019, at the FINOS flagship Open Source Strategy Forum, FINOS Platinum member Goldman Sachs announced its intention to open source its internally developed Legend data management platform. Legend provides an excellent opportunity to bring subject matter expertise to data models, as its single, visual platform enables engineers and non-engineers - regardless of their technical background - to develop data-centric applications and data-driven insights. Between April and September 2020, Goldman Sachs led several data modeling efforts as part of the FINOS Legend Studio Pilot to develop extensions to the International Swaps and Derivatives Association's Common Domain Model (ISDA CDM). Legend was open sourced and contributed into FINOS in late 2020 and is available on GitHub for anyone to use and contribute to.
