Deutsche Bank releases part two in its series of ISO 20022 migration guides

Deutsche Bank has released its second guide to the ISO 20022 migration. As Part 1 of the Guide emphasised, banks should not consider the migration to ISO 20022 as just “another IT project” and it’s equally important that corporates do not make the mistake of writing it off as just “another bank project”. So whether it’s a global bank implementing seismic changes, or a small corporate taking more modest steps, all market participants need to be regularly updated and ensure they are moving in the right direction.

Guide to ISO 20022 migration: Part 2” offers guidance for picking a successful route for migration and securing the full benefits of ISO 20022. Further Guides are planned as the journey continues.

Migration to ISO 20022 not “just another IT project”, says new Deutsche Bank whitepaper

The upcoming migration to ISO 20022 will have far-reaching implications for all banks, corporates and other important financial stakeholders. It is probably the most impactful payments industry undertaking since the introduction of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) more than a decade ago, and will require CEO commitment, allocation of appropriate budgets, resources and project teams given that a multitude of areas will be affected across institutions. This is not simply “another IT project”.

Deutsche Bank’s series of guides on this topic, aim to outline exactly what we can expect between now and 2025, creating awareness of the impact of ISO 20022 implementation and sharing best practices for approaching a project of such magnitude. The first in the series, “Guide to ISO 20022 migration: Part one”, focuses on the implications for banks, with future editions turning to assess how corporates can best plan for the changes.
