Beginning with the Open Healthcare Project, the Eclipse community has been introducing the
"Eclipse Way" and the idea of an open source platform with appropriate
tools into specific vertical markets. As of August 2007, Kaupthing Bank,
Luxembourg is about to launch the Open Financial Market Platform (OFMP)
project in order to open source several components of its financial
market platform, focusing on deal capture, real-time position keeping,
pricing tools and risk management. OFMP is about to be assigned to the
Eclipse Technology Project and provides specialized middle office
services for financial markets.
This workshop starts with an introduction to the OFMP project and the
current project status. It provides a roundtable for interested parties
to share their experiences and visions in the field of open source
financial market applications and will be the first official 'get
together' for interested parties in this area.
After the intro, we would like to learn more about specific market
needs and the motivations of other players in this field. Around the idea of getting
to know each other, we would like to address the following questions:
- What would be an appropriate service portfolio for interested 'customers' in this area?
- What are the technical/non-technical requirements for users?
- How can open source activities be promoted within the financial sector?
In addition, the workshop aims at bringing together different open
source projects to mutually identify high-level goals and opportunities
All workshop attendees are encouraged to inspire the workshop with
related use cases and are expected to be active participants. We would like to invite both
domain experts (e.g. financial engineers) as
well as interested software developers/managers from this field. Position papers
are not required for this workshop. Please just email the workshop leads to reserve a seat.
