GLEIF stands for Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation and is based in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. As a supranational non-profit foundation, GLEIF has set itself the task of improving transparency in the global financial markets.
byte5’s weapons of choice for this project were Laravel, Docker, Kubernetes and RabbitMQ. The newly-developed tool for GLEIF makes it easier to check LEI data regularly. In addition to continuous integration (CI), data governance also played a central role in the development process. The setup included a cooperative team consisting of developers from both GLEIF and byte5. The latter was entrusted with the realisation of architectural services.
