Financial Messaging and Monitoring

Financial industry messaging is different from messaging in other industries. In addition to transport and transformation, message tracking, real-time monitoring, search and manual repair are aspects that often pop-up with urgency due to criticality, compliance or business requirements. The lean messaging suite is less complex due to its focus on the financial industry’s requirements. The modular solution suite allows our customers to simply pick the relevant elements without the need to install and operate the full suite. This reduces total cost of ownership (TCO).

Solution Overview

EFiS Swiss product suite is based on the messaging middleware from our strategic partner Incentage. Our product suite makes sure that our customers are not left alone when it comes to other less traditional aspects of messaging. The product suite is unique in its functional depth reaching from transformation to messaging, to monitoring, to manual messaging workflows. This richness enables our customers to solve messaging sustainably and consistently.

Get an overview of the message flows across all applications, systems and processes. Know the flow quality and the risk

The Process Cockpit (PC) provides a real-time view of information flows. It detects any abnormalities immediately and escalates dangerous situations to enable damage prevention. PC creates and increases transparency while monitoring message flows, message processes, and applications in real-time. PC pro-actively alerts and escalates situations that are not within configurable thresholds. As a result, situations that could lead to reputational or financial loss are recognised early on. This opens a highly valuable time window for acting and preventing damage. Staying in control with PC in a consolidated view across a diversity of applications brings peace of mind.

Visual continuous messaging behaviour or business indicators throughout the day with PC Analytics

Message flows and business processes become a perfectly well organized mass, even when counting in the millions. Every single message knows exactly what to transport, in what form, at what time and where to deliver it. Messages behave uniform and are perfectly structured and orchestrated.

Real-time investigation and free text search with PC Central Message Repository

The problem with many of today’s investigating and retrieval solutions is that there is no easy access to specific messages in very large volumes of historical data. The IPC Central Message Repository is a storage and full-text high-speed search engine with flexible configuration to exceed expectations of internet experiences users. Incentage customers are using the Incentage Central Message Repository to find specific messages in hundreds of millions of archived messages within seconds – even when searching with free text.

Enabling message exchange, bridging formats, and content
