Six Degrees of Symphony - A Conversation with Ffion Acland about Open Source in Financial Markets

Christopher Satch, Vice President, Developer Experience

In a recent thought leadership series, Six Degrees of Symphony (from Symphony), six agents of industry change are showcased; one of which is our open source initiative.

Listen to Ffion Acland, Global Co-Manager of Data Models and Governance, as she describes why open source is vital for financial services innovation. Ffion also explores Legend, our open sourced data modeling platform, and how it has evolved to address the challenges of data silos, duplication, and complexity by providing efficient and reliable access to accurate, timely, and safe data. Legend is a partnership with FINOS, the Fintech Open Source Foundation, and aims to standardize industry terminology and enable safe and efficient data exchanges between industry parties.

In addition to hearing from Ffion, explore an article (PDF) with thoughts from Dietmar Fauser (Chief Information Officer, Symphony) and Gabriele Columbro (Executive Director, FINOS) on open source adoption within the financial industry.
