The next step on our open source journey
Over the last few years, the digital landscape has transformed rapidly – with new digital tools, platforms and products available to suit the needs of millions of people, right across the country.
A major factor in this rapid transformation – and a vital part of our own digital strategy over the past few years - has been the increased use of open source software.
Back in 2021 a group of dedicated colleagues here at Lloyds Banking Group set about applying and scaling processes for securely using open source software which, eventually, became the basis of the Group’s open source mission. Then, in 2022, the team took part in its first open source trial contribution – the first in the history of Lloyds Banking Group.
A second contribution trial followed shortly after concerning DBT BigQuery, an open source project that enables data analysts and engineers to transform their data using the same practices that software engineers use to build applications.
This year we have taken another important step on our open source journey by setting up a dedicated Open Source Program Office (OSPO) – a team of steadfast colleagues looking to further encourage the use of open source software across the Group.
Tech and Transformation
We’re the UK’s biggest digital bank, with over 18 million online customers. It’s taken more than £4bn in investment to get us here. And there’s still so much more we want to achieve.
Working together with fintech SMEs
We started our Launch Innovation Programme alongside Fintech Scotland to work in partnership with, and learn from, some of the best fintech SMEs in the country.
