Today, we have announced that I will be stepping back from the day-to-day operations of Symphony and will remain on the board of directors to support the company on strategic matters. Symphony’s president and chief commercial officer, Brad Levy, will become our chief executive officer on June 1, 2021.

Four thematic questions and the beginning of some answers that could help solve the puzzle around the need to reduce email reliance for financial firms
Hershey made commitments towards addressing environmental issues in their supply chain. However, child labor in the supply chain continues to be a pervasive issue for the chocolate producer, and in recent months surfaced as a red flag in the news on our ESG platform.
Traditional interactions, typically involving email, are as inefficient and risky as ever. Email is basically a 40 year old message queuing system. How is that helpful? I mean even fax machines could be considered more current (and secure) than email.

During this session, we will:
– Do a deep dive into a real-life authorization workflow
– Show how to realize this workflow by building 3 components using Symphony’s Bot Developer Kit 2.0, Spring Boot and Spring Security
– Discuss alternate workflows with their pros and cons
The last year has been a whirlwind for everyone. And while regulators such as the CFTC have offered temporary relief and extensions to certain voice trading and record-keeping rules in the increasingly virtual environment, distributed compliance parameters still remain a pivotal element of the institutional landscape. A distributed workforce is not a new concept in any industry, including capital markets. However, a lot of firms continue to struggle with how to address the challenges they’ve faced in the process, particularly in a shifting market ecosystem. While every company needs to employ remote working capabilities, there’s no question that it is difficult to manage and can create potential compliance challenges.
At the end of last year, we introduced SymBot: the first Symphony bot built specifically to provide automated support to Symphony users. I couldn’t be more proud of the team – while improving the Symphony user experience was our top priority and primary goal for SymBot, the bot also serves the important function of demonstrating core capabilities and strengths of the Symphony platform.
During this interactive session, Olivier Poupeney, Director of Developer Relations at Symphony, and Reed Feldman, Developer Relations Specialist at Symphony, showcase our rearchitected BDK and demo how to leverage the simplified configuration setup, the real-time event listeners, the Activities API, message templating engines, and the Spring Boot Integration provided out of the box. Developing bots has never been easier.
At the dawn of 2021, Symphony launched a new version of its Bot Developer Kit, the BDK 2.0. This toolkit provides the same support as Symphony’s existing SDKs for basic features such as datafeed handling and API bindings but simplifies many aspects like configuration, authentication, real-time events, and message templating. It also includes new advanced features like the Activities API as well as optional framework integration for Spring Boot developers.
