Exactpro to Become Part of MOST FIX Working Group

FIX Trading Community has announced the creation of a new working group focused on Monitoring, On-boarding and Software Testing (MOST). Exactpro CEO will be sharing his expertise as co-chair of the group.

FIX Trading Community is a non-profit, industry-driven financial trading standards body working on streamlining global financial processes. The creation of the Monitoring, On-boarding and Software Testing (MOST) working group reflects a need for further standardization and innovation in the post-trade area. In response to this need, Exactpro initiated the formation of MOST, which will be co-chaired by Iosif Itkin, Exactpro CEO and co-founder. Several Exactpro specialists are also expected to contribute as group members.

The group’s mission is to raise the quality and reliability of platforms operated by FIX Trading Community Members. This will be implemented via developing a set of recommended practices for software testing of FIX-related financial applications and creating technical guidelines for their quality and reliability assessment. The group will meet on a monthly basis and will also collaborate with the FIX Orchestra Working Group and the Cybersecurity Working Group to ensure alignment across a number of related issues.

MOST is currently looking for professionals with skills in software development, monitoring, on-boarding and testing. We look forward to your participation! Please contact FIX Program Office if you would like to join us.
