Open Source Lab


Banks in India are exploring open source software’s (OSS) in their businesses. The areas that banks could use OSS include Mobile Banking, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Financial Portals (internets and intranets), Learning Management Systems, etc.

The Institute’s Open Source Lab helps banks to use and explore opportunities of leveraging OSS in their businesses. The Lab helps banks to understand the Open Source Software proposition, what it stands for, what it means, and encourages them to explore using OSS in their own organisations.
