We have an open source first policy. If a viable open source project exists, or one which we can readily adapt to meet our requirements, it is our first choice. We also take particular care when adopting open source components to ensure we understand the risks these may present.
We have a permissive open source policy and actively encourage our team to contribute to open source projects.
If we create a technology solution that we feel others would benefit from, we are committed to open sourcing it.
We are active members of the Fintech Open Source Foundation (FINOS) and Linux Foundation and have partnered with various other organisations, such as Bristol Pound and J.P. Morgan to collaborate on a great many open source projects and initiatives.
Open source is the practice of developing software in the open, where the code is visible and open to being changed by anyone. What started as the free software movement in the early 90s has become a pervasive and critical part of the entire software industry. From cloud platforms to embedded systems, front-end UI to back-end data platforms, everywhere you look open source is the dominant force.
Whilst open source has many benefits when compared to closed-source proprietary solutions, it isn’t without issues. Commercial open source is thriving, however, there is an increasing reliance on community-led open source projects, many of which are struggling to sustain themselves.
Scott Logic has been an active member of the Fintech Open Source Foundation (FINOS) for a number of years. We're active in a number of their working groups and projects, including FDC3 (desktop interop standards), KDB (a time series database) and their D&I Committee. Our CTO has also served as a board member and is currently leading their nascent Technical Steering Committee.
We have built, and made significant contributions to, a wide range of open source projects. These are some of the highlights:
In partnership with FINOS, we run open source meetups which aim to expand contributions to and consumption of open source technologies that support large enterprises in addressing their business challenges.
