What When

ISO 20022 migration: will it be a marathon or a sprint?


In April 2018 SWIFT launched a detailed community consultation setting out the drivers for ISO 20022 migration for different business areas and a proposed migration approach, and seeking community feedback on the key questions of how, when and what to migrate.
In this interactive session, we will share insights on how the community reacted to the proposed migration strategy and discuss practical implications with key market players and standards experts.

ISO 20022 migration: the time is now


In April 2018 SWIFT launched a large scale community consultation on migrating cross-border MT traffic to ISO 20022. Following this consultation and the feedback received on the proposed approach, this session will take a closer look at overall market trends and readiness of the SWIFT community to migrate to ISO 20022.  We will  also share how SWIFT plans to support the migration and present  solutions to help users in their journey.

API-Culture: In need of Standards!


As more and more implementations in financial services are designing and exposing APIs, there is a growing need to guarantee a close interoperability with other financial communication channels. During this interactive session, we will explore how this can be achieved using the existing ISO20022 business standard.
