The challenge
• Reduce impact of SWIFT
changes to the BESS
payments engine
• Enhance the bank’s readiness
to the new XML based and ISO
20022 messaging
• Ensure long term support for
SWIFT messaging
• Reduce dependency on legacy
code and skills
Objective - Remove “pure” SWIFT wireroom functionality
out of the current payments engine
The solution – A new WireRoom Application
(WRAP)
Why did we decide on Integrator
& SWIFT…
• Improved Time to market for
integration
Consulting
Services
• Reduced project and operational
risk
• Leverage on a proven solution
• We needed a vendor to rely on,
with good track record - To assist
initially and for the long term

The solution – A new WireRoom Application

using a single interfacing method
(MQ GI)
• Minimise impact to interfacing
systems
• Avoid “first timer” mistakes
• Thru-put target: 1/3rd of the
day’s volume in < 1Hr
