Keynote: Innovation + Security = Customer Joy: Stop Sacrificing Customer Experience for Security - John Jeremiah, Product Marketing Manager, GitLab
Many organizations mistakenly forfeit speed and innovation in an attempt to support their complicated internal security processes and technology while foregoing the opportunity to create delight and loyalty with their customers. However, according to Gartner, “more than two-thirds of companies now compete primarily on the basis of customer experience”, meaning institutions can no longer expect to retain or grow their customer base without creating relentless and repeatable moments of customer joy.

Now is the time to simplify your institution’s processes and backend so that you can focus on innovation. To be ruthlessly customer-centric, you must focus on their experience, their values, their needs. Customer joy is about delivering on the intersection of innovation and security to engage customers where they are...and where they see themselves going.

Join this session to discover:
  • How your speed of code delivery is connected to your customer’s value perception
  • Why your current backend is causing friction in the customer experience
  • How you can shortcut time to delivery AND improve the CX easily and seamlessly
Discover how you can proactively build a better, faster, more responsive CX into your backend without compromising security.

Keynote: Quickly Deliver Modern Banking Products and Services with Modularity, the Enterprise Open Source Way - Alessandro Petroni, Global Director & Head, Strategy Financial Services, Red Hat
Banks are looking for ways to adopt new technologies that will allow their customers to expand their financial activities in a friction-free and seamless way, but delivering customer value in a legacy environment is immensely challenging. Restricted by business processes or infrastructure badly in need of modernization, banks need to adopt industry standards, open architectures to quickly embrace business capabilities from vendors, using industry blueprints, that allow them to quickly build offerings that meet digital customer needs.  In this session, Alessandro Petroni will explore Red Hat's experience of building and deploying a modular business microservices-based open architecture - with a code blueprint to accompany it - that helps banks innovate at will, rapidly composing new customer offerings within hours instead of months.

Open Innovation in the Financial Services Sector: How Co-creating Open Source Software Benefits your Business - Leslie Hawthorn & Joe Giordano, Red Hat
From the ability to detect sepsis susceptibility in critical care patients to FinanceAI applications handling fraud and anomaly detection, open source has accelerated innovation at speeds unfathomable 15 years ago. The radical shifts in how goods and services are brought to market would have been impossible to make and scale without the collaboration and co-creation taking place in Open Source software communities worldwide - what Red Hat terms “open innovation.” In this talk, Leslie Hawthorn and Joe Giordano will explore the “what’s in it for me” for FSI and FinTech firms who are considering active participation in open source software projects. Amongst other topics, they will cover: Concrete steps that FSI firms can take to foster an open innovation culture Benefits of co-creating open source software over a consumption-only model Delivering business value at high velocity while simultaneously reducing risk and cost The audience will leave this talk with a deeper understanding of open source communities, types of participation in these communities - from minimal to deep engagement - and the benefits that FSI and FinTech organizations can expect from engaging upstream.

Our Own "Jungle" of the Commercial Software Supply Chain - Justin Rackliffe, Fidelity Investments
How can we avoid the lessons Upton Sinclair dramatized around the meat packing industry in the early 20th century with commercial use of open source? There are great organizations like OpenChain creating practices to build trust, but credibility in the software supply chain may need more. A "USDA stamp" for commercial software may still be a ways off, but Justin Rackliffe has some practices that consumers can use based on resources software suppliers should maintain and can be indicators of good and bad practices without access to all the code.

Morphir: Highly Automated Application Development Turning Business Concepts into Transparent and Reliable Cloud Services - Stephen Goldbaum, Morgan Stanley & Adam Hurwitz, Microsoft
App development requires substantial effort on code that's not core to the app's value. Some estimates indicate that developers spend the majority of their time on non-value tasks like serialization, messaging, technical debt, and compliance with regulations. And with studies estimating 10 bugs per 1,000 lines of code, all of that tangential code adds considerable risk. In this talk we introduce Morphir for building reliable applications in today’s multi-paradigm world. Morphir is the project open-sourced by Morgan Stanley and recently contributed into FINOS. It recognizes the business logic as the most valuable asset across in an ever-changing tech landscape. Morphir focuses on business logic and automates the rest. We'll explore using Morphir with Microsoft’s Dapr to quickly turn business concepts into transparent and reliable cloud services. Morphir generates all of the necessary code while Dapr provides a robust cloud runtime. The result is one-touch deployment from pure business logic to running micro-services. We conclude by highlighting ongoing work with Microsoft Research to further automate the development process with even more reliability and transparency.

What can the Financial Crash Teach Us about Open Source? - Colin Eberhardt, Scott Logic
Modern software is increasingly complex, made up of hundreds or thousands of open source components, hidden away in deeply-nested dependency trees. Just how much do we know about these open source components that are an integral part of our products? What are the risks associated with their usage, and our exposure? As an industry, our solution is to build up a robust defense against these perils. Security scans, licence checkers - these help create a walled-garden, but ultimately harms the wider open source ecosystem. In this talk Colin will take a deep dive into a popular open source software product, scrutinising its dependencies and software supply chain. We’ll look at where this code comes from, who authored it and how it is distributed. A key factor contributing to the 2008 financial crisis was our hidden and unwitting exposure to the failing subprime mortgage market. In the recovery from the crash, it took a concentrated effort to identify and unpick the layers of abstraction that hid this exposure. There are certainly parallels to be drawn with the complexity and exposure with open source software. And much like the financial crash, there is no simple solution!

Protecting Innovation in the Financial Services Industry - Keith Bergelt, Open Invention Network
Mr. Bergelt will share how the growing adoption of OSS by developers of FinTech has led to new kinds of innovation. He will discuss a potential impediment to the growth of FinTech OSS – patent lawsuits. He will explain how patent aggression by Patent Assertion Entities (PAEs) and operating companies could slow the progress of OSS code adoption in this sector absent unified support for patent non-aggression which mitigates risk. Mr. Bergelt will discuss the benefits of developing an IP strategy that recognizes the duality occasioned by the implementation of both OSS and proprietary software and the choices involved in safeguarding unique aspects of product differentiation. He will showcase some of the strategies that FinTech-related businesses implement by working through defensive patent management and risk reduction programs authored by entities like RPX, LOTnet, Unified Patents and AST. Finally, Mr. Bergelt will explain how OSS FinTech purveyors and users like Ant Group (host of AliPay mobile payments), Tencent (host of WeChat mobile payments), UnionPay, Ethereum and the Japanese megabank Sumitomo Mitsui are benefiting from patent non-aggression through free membership in OIN.

Enabling Financial Inclusion Through Open, Accessible Payment Models - Paula Hunter & Konstantin Peric, Mojaloop Foundation
Digital payments have been driving much of the digital economy growth and financial inclusion in developing countries. However, the payment ecosystem lacks an open, shared financial infrastructure that will allow interoperability between different payment system providers. Open source software can help reduce the cost and complexity of developing interoperable payment models, enabling digital financial services providers to drive more adoption and innovation to merchants and consumers. In light of this, more work and collaboration are needed to drive the adoption of open source payment system approaches that open economies for all. This session will address: • How advances in open source are enabling innovation in real-time interoperable payment systems in ways that advance financial inclusion • Ways open source reference models for payments platforms can foster faster adoption of secure digital payments that are open, safe and accessible to the underseved • How open source software can lower the cost and complexity of adding interoperability for DFSPs bullding real-time payments systems

Lightning Talk: Contributing to an Internal Community at a Bank: Helping or Hurting Your Career? - Frank Wu, Red Hat
Historically not sharing information solidified one's career at a large Bank. Whether it meant controlling a particular technology, integration point and/or domain, it was beneficial to one's personal career to hoard information and work in "silos". Today the world is different. Open [Source] Software and the DevOps movement has shown the power of collaboration in uniting disparate groups and technologies together to increase reliability, resiliency, and time to market advantages. Previously when Enterprise Architecture (EA) blessed technologies from "top down", today new technologies are emerging from "bottom up" and internal communities are emerging at large Banks on these technologies. This talk will talk about how you help create and foster internal technology communities within large Banks using real-world examples from Red Hat with the historical context of existing 'Bank Culture', political and organizational challenges, and how to help create strategies to overcome.

Lightning Talk: OpenAI GPT-2 for Drafting Technical Documents - Robin Rowe, Venture Hollywood
The blank page. A writer's greatest fear. Writers block delays progress in writing international standards. Once there's a draft, progress is faster. It's easier being a critic. OpenAI GPT-2 is a complete-my-thought type of AI. Given a first paragraph, GPT-2 will continue it by writing what it anticipates you would say next. You may have read about GPT-2 being used by students to write term papers. GPT-2 writes a mediocre C-grade term paper, but it's a useful starting point. We're using GPT-2 to draft the first world standards document drafted by AI. It's a 3-step process. A group of domain experts define the topics to be covered using mind mapping software, such as open source FreeMind. A mind map is a hierarchy of topics, a spider graph. With that mind map as a guide, the group leader can quickly write a concise one-paragraph intro for each topic. Then feed that into GPT-2. It outputs one page per topic to produce a first draft. Experts then edit that draft as usual. Not writing the first draft by hand saves time. Open source GPT-2 does the job in minutes. We're running GPT-2 on an ordinary laptop, not on GPUs, not on the cloud. https://github.com/robinrowe/gpt-2

Panel Discussion: Fintech to Fight Climate Change - Truman Semans, LF Climate Finance; Lisa Eichler, Ortec Finance; Dr. Ana Pinheiro Privette, Amazon & Michael Tiemann, Red Hat
There’s a $1.2 trillion annual gap in financing to meet Paris Climate Accord goals. Larry Fink says climate is the single biggest thematic issue in capital markets.  Pension funds with more than $40 Trillion in AUM have pledged their portfolios will be Net Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050, and many of them have committed to set 2025 targets on that pathway.  Several dozen of the global commercial and investment banks are have made commitments too, including JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley. But major advances in data and analytics are required to meet the challenges in strategic asset allocation, portfolio construction, credit analysis, security selection, an financial product development.  Allianz, Amazon, Microsoft, and S&P Global have joined as Founding Members of a new Linux Foundation umbrella project LF Climate Finance, and many promising fintech companies want to contribute to building LFCF's OS-Climate platform.  The audience will hear from the head of Amazon’s Sustainability Data Initiative, Red Hat’s VP of Open Source Affairs and former President of OSI Michael Tiemann, and the climate lead for Dutch fintech leader Ortec Finance.  The vision for the OS-Climate architecture, Data Commons, and modeling is generalizable to other pressing environmental and social challenges,  This panel will launch a problem-solving dialogue to figure out how to take the explosive growth of open source among financial sector data scientists and IT professionals, and engage the front office that is unaware or even suspicious of open source.

Powering Micro-UIs with FDC3 - Nicholas Kolba, Genesis Global
The use of Micro-UIs (or Micro Frontends) is a relatively new pattern for splitting complex monoliths into vertically integrated components. This is of particular interest to financial application development, since data dense views and complex workflows can be broken into logical and re-mixable parts. In this session, we will demonstrate how key features of FDC3 1.1 and emerging FDC3 standards can be used to build micro-ui based workflows that span across applications and components from multiple providers and how the genesis Low Code Application Platform (LCAP) is leveraging open source web technologies and the FDC3 standards to transform application development in finance.

Panel Discussion: Pioneering Open Source at a Financial Regulator - Adam Scott; Jennifer Lassiter; Eric Spry & Tim Lambert, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Open source software is a fundamental aspect of how the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has served the public in its short history. In April of 2012, a few months after opening their doors, the CFPB released their source code policy, along with two open source projects. Just six days later, they accepted the first known open source pull request from a member of the public to a United States Government software project. Since 2012, the CFPB has continued to grow its open source program, including public contributions to software, openly developing regulatory tools, and standing up an innovative tech sprint program. Join panelists Adam Scott (Web Development Lead, Technology and Innovation), Jennifer Lassiter (Program Operations Lead, , Technology and Innovation), Eric Spy (HMDA Operations Lead, Technology and Innovation), and Timothy Lambert (Senior Counsel, Fair Lending and Equal Opportunity) as they share their experience standing up, maintaining, and evolving the Bureau’s open source program.

Responsible AI in Banking - Ranadip Chatterjee & Christos Aniftos, Google
AI/ML has arguably emerged as a key tool in the banking and financial services industry that can significantly improve business performances while also allowing to reduce cost and increase security and robustness of services. However, decision automation using AI/ML comes with its own challenges around explainability, fairness, bias and regulatory compliance. Financial services being a highly regulated industry, this concern has been paramount and resulted in rather cautious adoption of this powerful tool. The technology community has responded to this challenge and there has been a number of recent developments in improving transparency and explainability of automatically developed models. These tools can be used effectively to ensure that AI/ML is used in an ethical and compliant way that reduces the reputation risk to large financial institutions. In this talk, Ranadip and Christos will introduce Google's AI Principles and then run through a number of contrived situations in banking that introduces risks through the use of AI/ML. Then they will demonstrate how specific open source tools that can be used to effectively monitor for and avoid such situations.

The Role of Customer-partner-vendor Collaboration in Enterprise Open Source Strategy - Jose Miguel Parrella, Microsoft Corporation
For over a decade, Microsoft has been building cloud solutions using open source software often times collaborating with commercial partners and enterprise customers and by joining forces in open source project governance. Examples range from Linux to open source application and data platform and include OAM, SONiC, ONNX Runtime, Confidential Containers and SBoM. Are open collaboration and service provider's responsibility incompatible? How does a large cloud provider like Microsoft balance growing adoption of open source development models, end user expectations around support, security and reliability and its own developer- and partner-centric DNA? In this session, we'll cover the processes and strategic approach that we've implemented and our learnings in the journey.

Securely Connecting Financial Workloads in Kubernetes: Three Real-world Examples - Neela Jacques & Dan Wendlandt, Isovalent
"We've chosen Kubernetes as our platform of choice for the next 10+ years" said the lead architect at one of the world's largest investment banks. "But we can't migrate our most critical apps onto it right now." We hear this from almost every major financial services company, from banks to insurance companies. Kubernetes is the future, but the limitations of the simple default networking in Kubernetes results in critical gaps to securely and reliably running high-performance financial applications on this new cloud native infrastructure . We will discuss these challenges in the context of three real-world user stories - from a large US bank, a major US insurance company, and a European payment processing platform. We will explore how each company leveraged a new open source Linux networking & security project called Cilium to provide secure, high-performance, and reliable connectivity to financial services applications running on Kubernetes clusters that spanned multiple geographies, all while giving their security teams the isolation and auditability required to meet strict financial compliance requirements.

FDX: How OpenSource is Solving Public Cloud Risk for Banks - Freddie Leadsom, Daniela Zheleva, Deutsche Bank & Abdullah Garcia, JPMorgan
To keep up with the pace of change and computational acceleration across Technologically involved industries, many companies have adopted the Public Cloud to exponentially increase their scalability, flexibility and cost efficiency. Banks are no exception, but coupled with the challenges of regulation and stability within Financial Services, the world’s largest Financial Institutions have an enormous task ahead to adopt an infrastructure model that allows them to keep up with the smallest and nimblest of Tech companies.

Deutsche Bank have been working with The Fin-tech OpenSource Foundation for around 18 months on a project to multilaterally accelerate the transformation of banking Infrastructure from self hosted to Public Cloud technology. Some of the largest investment banks in the world including JP Morgan and Deutsche bank as well as Red Hat, Microsoft and a consortium of tech pioneers have come together to demonstrate that banks can be included in the Public Cloud revolution, and provide solutions that will extend the concept to more of the Financial Industry.

Unlocking High Performing Teams with Open Source: Improving Upon DORA Metrics is the Goal, Open Source is the Way - Tracy Miranda, The Linux Foundation
The Open Source software community has inspired a legion of users and developers that have taken the idea to incredible heights. That's not entirely unique to Open Source; many popular applications are the subject of meetups, user groups and even entire conferences. What can we learn from this community? By now, most of the IT community has read the “Accelerate State of DevOps” report from DORA and Google. It reveals data and benchmarks about the performance for which all companies aspire to achieve. For example, elite performers are 1.75x more likely to make extensive use of Open Source Software and are 1.5x more likely to be expanding their use of Open Source Software. But how do we get to high performance? In this talk, I will share how Open Source is the key to unlocking high performance using DORA metrics as a roadmap to achievement. I will share steps in a process such as the adoption of continuous improvement programs, identification of unique constraints, and discovering where you can swarm resources to solve the most critical challenges first. I will also share an experience report of how a team I worked with achieved high performance with Jenkins X.
