How to cultivate tomorrow’s integrated desktop ecosystem How to cultivate tomorrow’s integrated desktop ecosystem

At Scott Logic, we’ve seen an emerging vision of an integrated desktop ecosystem, with various open source and vendor products – such as OpenFin, Glue42 and Finsemble – providing interoperability. However, we aren’t quite there yet.

In a new series of webinars with some of our most senior consultants, we’ll be discussing why your business should consider adopting these products, the range of benefits they bring, and the various challenges you need to bear in mind.

So, what difference can an integrated desktop ecosystem make?

Your traders and other financial professionals interact with a wide range of systems throughout the course of their day. Working across this cluttered application estate can be a challenge, resulting in workflows that are fractured and inefficient.

What if their desktop applications – old and new – were always up to date, and worked together harmoniously in an interface that surfaced data tailored to their needs, allowing them to respond rapidly?

Our webinar series will explore this software from a wide range of perspectives, helping you and your teams assess the difference it could make in the specific context of your business, and what steps you can take next.

You can watch the first video in the series below, and find details of upcoming webinars. We’ll keep updating this page as further details of future webinars are confirmed.

The new white paper by our CTO Colin Eberhardt identifies the core building blocks that are required to build an integrated desktop application ecosystem using a combination of web and legacy technologies. He looks at the challenges involved in moving from legacy desktop technologies to web technologies, and reviews the various products that form the building blocks of this ecosystem of the future.
