Automating the testing process for a core system upgrade seems to be a logical step. Swiss private bank, Schroders, has done just this as the pilot site for Temenos' new upgrade tool. Replacing the core system is widely regarded as one of the most challenging projects for a bank's IT team. But the work does not finish when the new core is live. With vendors supplying annual upgrades, regular service packs and assorted patches, keeping the system up to date can be almost as big a project as implementing it in the first place.
