Assess impact

ISO 20022 will impact several back-office transaction processing systems, including core banking systems, payments middleware, reconciliation and screening systems. Operations and business processes will also be impacted with the more rich data enabled by the standard. Our standards and technical experts can help you identify and assess the impact on your transaction processing systems, allowing you to identify messaging solutions and define a strategy for enabling ISO 20022 across your correspondent banking network.

Plan your project

You will need a set of requirement specifications, a high-level design, budget, resource and project plan to execute the adoption of the new standard. Feasibility study services to support you in planning for your adoption project are also at hand. Our technical experts will support you in identifying coexistence measures, integration solutions and SWIFT products that can help you in this journey.
