FINOS Announces 2023 State of Open Source in Financial Services Survey
The Linux Foundation | 20 June 2023
FINOS, the fintech open source foundation, Linux Foundation Research, and partners GitHub, Red Hat, and Scott Logic are conducting their third annual survey as part of their ongoing research on open source adoption, contribution, and readiness in the financial services industry.
The increased prevalence, importance, and value of open source is well understood and widely reported by many industry surveys and studies. However, the rate at which different industries acknowledge this shift and adapt their working practices to capitalize on the new world of open source-first differs considerably.
- The financial services industry achieved a major milestone last year, with 87% of respondents in our 2022 State of Open Source in Financial Services survey saying they believed open source was valuable for the future of the industry. This result represents a significant achievement for a field with a history of developing proprietary technologies.
- In 2021, 40% of survey respondents told us they spent some time at work contributing to open source projects. In 2022, this number was 50%. What will that number be in 2023? Now in its third year, we are in an excellent position to explore open source trends in the industry.
