ISO 20022 Migration and Modernization

ISO 20022 is coming soon to a payments market infrastructure near you. Are you ready?

Nov 2021 Deadline for 'big bang' migration of EU T2 and Euro1

ISO 20022 is the future of financial messages. SWIFT, central banks, and market infrastructures worldwide are migrating to ISO 20022 based messaging. ISO 20022 is also the de facto standard for new payment schemes, including real-time payments.

It's not only about changing formats. ISO 20022 messages carry extended data, with the potential to improve STP and reduce reconciliation. But to take advantage of these capabilities, banks need to update or replace their payments and messaging systems.

Volante can help you with every stage of your migration journey. Our solutions range from message transformation to legacy system co-existence to end-to-end payments processing, powered by the industry’s most comprehensive ISO 20022 standards libraries and data models. Available on-premise or as a service in the cloud.
