Migration to ISO 20022 – Lessons learned during the first street-test

As the corresponding banking industry gets ready for the migration to ISO 20022 starting in November 2022, many financial institutions are beginning to prepare their systems for testing scenarios. One of the first major tests between SWIFT and seven large transaction banks is taking place mid-June 2021. This so called “street test”, approximately 18 months prior to the go live date, will give a good indication as to whether the industry is on track and, importantly, what still has to be achieved to ensure we make this a success.

If you or any of your colleagues are affected by the ISO 20022 migration or personally involved in the ISO 20022 project, you may want to join Deutsche Bank’s virtual focus session on 24 June. Here subject matter experts from the participating banks and SWIFT will give insights into the results, provide valuable lessons that can be learned and share experiences as to how to prepare for such a scenario. 

date: JUNE 24, 2021
