Mission Critical Data & Evaluating the Community in OSS Tech

Apache Cassandra is used in the critical path of most Global Banks yet one might ask why it’s so important in so many financial institutions. A modernised, cloud native data platform is table stakes as we face new challenges and possibilities. Today, we see this in open banking, cryptocurrencies, data governance, etc. requiring faster, more automated, and accountable data applications at lower operational overheads. While we broadly utilise open source tech to solve these challenges around speed, elasticity, cost and operational overhead, and data governance - is open source really up to the task? Are communities involved in these technologies ready to continuously deliver? In this session Mick Semb Wever, PMC Chair for Apache Cassandra and Services Leader at DataStax, will discuss how Apache Cassandra, having established itself as THE NoSQL database over the last decade, has re-energised its community and feature development and talk about how ING, Danske Bank and MobilePay leverage open source for real-time payments, fraud detection and KYC. This will be backed up with working code examples and demo applications the audience can use for themselves.

    Project Updates: Financial Objects – Product Control Common Template – FINIOS TEAM 17 November

    There is a lot happening within our SIGs and Projects, and we want to highlight some, including Financial Objects.The FINOS Financial Objects SIG (Special Interest Group) is a community-led forum to discuss and identify the need for new, open financial object standards as well as modifications to existing standards, and The goal of the Financial Objects SIG is to provide a neutral forum for individuals across the financial services industry to collectively identify the need for new, open, financial objects standards as well as modifications to existing ones. The Financial Objects SIG also aims to promote the adoption of financial object definitions and models that support common industry workflows and use cases.In January 2021, The FO SIG proposed and launched two projects: the Commodities Payout and the Product Control Common Template. It became evident that after the launch of the two working streams, there were overarching, common elements to these work streams (modeling financial objects, using Legend & the FINOS hosted Legend Studio instance, and leveraging the ISDA CDM); every workstream has specific requirements that warrant separate governance structures.
