Software Company Speeds Bank Validation Process, Expects 20 Percent Productivity Gain
Bankdata builds banking applications that comply with standards set by the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT). SWIFT uses a unique data format that must be translated before Bankdata applications can use it. Bankdata uses Microsoft BizTalk Server 2009 to translate data and keep systems up to date. Now, existing banking relationships are validated when transaction messages are created. BizTalk Server 2009 also supports a notification service in the NetBank online banking system. Through this service, customers are alerted to specific activities in their accounts. To help its developers, Bankdata relies on BizTalk Server 2009 support for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server. Bankdata expects to improve application life-cycle management, boost productivity by 20 percent, and raise the quality and solutions.
