Financial technology has a lot to teach the DevOps movement about regulatory and compliance considerations. DevOps has a lot to offer fintech like fast deployment, team agility and measuring against organizational goals. In Paul Bruce’s presentation, he discusses how high-quality APIs, rapid iteration and looking at things from the customer's perspective can bridge the gap in responsible implementation between DevOps and financial technology, ultimately to help better work the three aspects of the designer's triangle to your advantage. Good, fast, cheap. They say you can only pick two. We don't have that luxury.
