The OpenGamma Platform is designed to allow financial services firms to unify their calculation of analytics "across the traditional trading and risk management boundaries", says the vendor.
Wylie has blogged that the platform will be available under a "commercially-friendly" Open Source license "because that's what customers have told us they want"
