FDC3: Interoperability for the Financial Desktop (LFS177x) course simplifies learning open standards for financial desktops
Addressing the growing adoption of the FDC3 standard requires that more individuals in financial services understand the standard from both a technical and business perspective. That is why FINOS partnered with Linux Foundation Training & Certification to create a new training course: FDC3: Interoperability for the Financial Desktop (LFS177x). The course was developed by an Adaptive team formed by Riko Eksteen (Adaptive Head of Desktop Strategy), Sebastian Moser (Adaptive Lead Developer) and Ivan Falanga (Front End Developer).
LFS177x explores the FDC3 standard for application interoperability, including the vision, key concepts, benefits, and how workflow-driven design makes it easy to get started with FDC3. It is meant for financial professionals working in business roles, program management, or technical architecture who would like to understand how FDC3 can help them achieve integrated workflows between applications on their desktop. This course will also be invaluable to software developers seeking a thorough introduction to the technical concepts that form part of the FDC3 standard.
This course prepares business professionals to make informed decisions in the planning or procurement process for new software and helps to ensure that workflows are joined up effectively. Software and fintech professionals will walk away with an understanding of the key FDC3 concepts and how to use the appropriate concepts when developing applications.
