Open Source in Financial Services
Regulation, Standards, Innovation, and Automation
As a financial services organization, you need to be agile, innovative and competitive. Open Source has become the natural solution to many of these pressures, as it addresses these needs while also permitting IT organizations to spend development resources on those innovations that are truly differentiating. Mobile technology, in particular, is a game changer in the consumption and delivery of financial services. Of course, with innovation also come challenges.
The financial services industry has unique and complex concerns, from the Basel III regulatory framework to adherence to PCI DSS. And for companies having debt or equity securities traded in the US, Sarbanes Oxley represents complex layers of individual and corporate responsibilities. Managing compliance with standards and regulations is the price of entry. However, successful compliance at almost any scale requires automation.
