Deutsche Bank con­tin­ues with its open source jour­ney

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Not de­vi­at­ing from its open source path, Deutsche Bank has made some soft­ware code pub­licly avail­able.

The so­lu­tion, known as Waltz, will help firms bet­ter un­der­stand their IT en­vi­ron­ments, al­low­ing them to man­age their tech­nol­ogy more ef­fec­tively. The move un­der­pins the bank’s goal to be­come a leader in the open source com­mu­nity.

Waltz al­lows or­gan­i­sa­tions to gather in­for­ma­tion about their IT en­vi­ron­ment from mul­ti­ple sources across the firm, in­clud­ing in­for­ma­tion on ap­pli­ca­tions, in­fra­struc­ture, data, pro­cesses and costs. It pulls the in­for­ma­tion to­gether in­tel­li­gently and displays it in a pow­er­ful, easy to use in­ter­face. The re­sult is an un­prece­dented level of trans­parency for de­ci­sion mak­ers over their com­plex IT en­vi­ron­ments. This en­ables smarter, faster and bet­ter de­ci­sions on tech­nol­ogy in­vest­ments and al­lows or­gan­i­sa­tions to op­ti­mise their IT ar­chi­tec­ture to meet busi­ness growth and de­vel­op­ment goals.

Waltz is part of the bank’s strat­egy to mod­ernise, sim­plify and stan­dard­ise its tech­nol­ogy. By mak­ing the code pub­licly avail­able, pro­gram­mers can sug­gest im­prove­ments, de­velop new fea­tures and find in­no­va­tive new uses for the soft­ware. This is fed back into the open source com­mu­nity, mak­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion even more use­ful for every­one. The code can be ac­cessed via the GitHub plat­form.

Rus­sell Green, head of group ar­chi­tec­ture at Deutsche Bank, said, “This is an ex­cit­ing step which show­cases the high level of in­no­va­tion within the firm. We look for­ward to work­ing with the open source com­mu­nity to share ideas, drive con­sis­tency across the in­dus­try and con­tin­u­ally im­prove the soft­ware.”
