It’s that time of the year again, and the Open Source in Finance Forum returns to New York City next week, November 1st, 2023 and members of Red Hat will be there.
According to the Open Source in Finance Forum website:
Open Source in Finance Forum is the only conference dedicated to driving collaboration and innovation in financial services through open source software and standards.
We bring together experts across financial services, technology, and open source to engage our community in stimulating and thought-provoking conversations about how to best (and safely) leverage open source software to solve industry challenges.
Talks and Keynotes
The forum is made up of various keynotes and speaker sessions. This year, as well as being a major sponsor to the forum, members from Red Hat will be sharing their knowledge through keynotes and breakout sessions.
Cloud introduces new complexity into IT financial management with firms challenged to balance the benefits of cloud against the need for fiscal guardrails and resiliency. Hear how to bring finance, technology, and business leadership together in cross-company collaboration to foster agility, innovation, and resiliency by leveraging the FinOps model.
InnerSource practices can help establish an open source culture within an organization, which is especially appealing for regulated industries like financial services .The Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) engineering teams aligned their ongoing InnerSource skills acquisition to align with their guiding business metrics. Learn best practices to work and collaborate more effectively across the organization, increase developer engagement and contribution.
A modern cloud native application might consist of hundreds of microservices across on-prem and cloud servers. Some of these services may have downstream dependencies on firm-wide systems while others may rely on third parties. All with varying SLAs and points of failure. When performance falls short, quickly understanding what is happening under the covers is critical. In this presentation, Marius and Aric will present: * What is observability and why is it more than just logs? * The current state of open source observability tools and where / when / why to use which tool * Best practices to improve observability in a highly regulated environment such as financial services
When working within highly regulated enterprises, open source software consumption and contribution processes can be challenging. Many times within the technical culture space, there are perceived roadblocks that can get in the way of development which has unintended consequences. One of these being that the technologists do not know how to access their dependencies, resolve vulnerabilities and even upgrade specific package versions which then in turn springs off a line of support tickets for team members that are not familiar with OSS and slows down innovations. This can be a deterrent for many engineers and sometimes they just give up and follow the ticketing route. This talk is designed to show enterprises how to avoid this slow down through building a strong open source strategy and leverage Special Interest Groups. We will break down personas, maturity models, solutions, direct impact examples and how this work is also integrated within open source readiness SIG here at FINOS
