Innovation Through Integration
Integration solutions are increasingly the go-to solution for solving business challenges. Technological innovations such as Blockchain or the utilization of APIs can improve business processes through software adoption.
Yet, legacy backend systems are hindering innovation adoption. Built-for-one-purpose, highly-specific, single requirement solutions and in-house customizations lack the flexibility to solve multiple use cases and cannot be adjusted to solve new challenges.
Drivers of the Integration Approach
Common drivers pushing IT projects in financial services include new compliance requirements, increased customers and the need to scale, onerous and time consuming onboarding, slow implementation of new projects, the need to deliver new services and products to remain competitive, and of course the challenges and opportunities faced in monetizing and securing data.
SEEBURGER provides the software and experience to address integration needs through Managed File Transfer (MFT)/Business-Business (B2B)/Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)/API ready-to-run payments integration packages for PSD2 including XS2A, SEPA, payment standardization based on ISO20022 as bridge between domestic and internal formats and more.
Improved Customer Experience
Deliver value-adding services to business users and customers with a fully interconnected backend, enabling comprehensive business activity monitoring, tailored alerting and notifications about specifically selected data. User-friendly front and backends empower business and technical users to deliver data to customer-facing products, providing improved customer services. Services such as track and trace, which provides transparent data flows of information such as payment and onboarding statuses, empower customers and lines of business alike.

The Real Rush for Real-Time Payments
|Solution Topics||More Information|
|The demand to conduct business in instant or real-time continues to increase significantly, particularly in the context of financial transactions. For consumers and businesses, it is increasingly unacceptable to wait until the next day or longer to know that a transaction was successful. There are however, a number of considerations including how APIs are utilized.||Considerations for creating real-time transaction solutions|
Customer and Partner Onboarding
Throughout your digital business journey, integration with your customers and business partners plays a crucial role. Having the ability to accelerate the flow of information to and from customers or business partners can make or break the bank for your business model. Your partners and customers expect top notch, secure and collaborative channels to send and receive secure information.
|The Community Management Application allows flexible modules for on-boarding and self-service|
Payment Validation, Transformation and Compliance Check
The way money moves is undergoing radical change globally. In an increasingly digital world, customers and regulators expect better, faster services to move monies efficiently and securely in real-time, and current payment infrastructures struggle to meet these needs.

There is an opportunity cost to patch it up projects. Large infrastructure projects can be overwhelming to organize internally because of the number of teams involved and their different requirements.
SEEBURGER advocates an integration approach to modernization and consolidation. A focus on integration allows our customers to take full advantage of information flows while reducing system complexity. Over simplified approaches, which rely solely on a specific product or function upgrade using microservices and API solutions for integration, are only increasing financial costs in the future, and hinder opportunities for innovation, growth and scalability.
Instantaneously reflect changes across ecosystem: Reduced touch points for changes achieve simplification. When advantageous, a change made via one entry point can be automatically populated into others, such as mappings and protocols, or partner onboarding information. Central libraries for reusable content reduce the time it takes to input new changes, data input errors and the length of the onboarding process. From weeks to days and hours, the amount of time saved from the reduction of double-effort input generates tangible bottom-line savings, decreases the time-to-market for new customer projects and gets customers into the banking ecosystem faster.
Common legacy transformation projects include:
- Consolidating technology partners for simplified upgrades and service delivery
- Updating legacy gateways to handle increased volume, larger file sizes, new protocols
- Replacing mainframes and other backend systems to increase flexibility
- Payments Hub Replacement and Integration
- Implementing standardized file validation, transformation and secure transfer systems
- Opting for a single product solution for true integration

From effective role management for monitoring and end-to-end visibility to speeding up onboarding and implementing ISO2022 and PSD2, ensure your solution is well integrated into your KYC and AML initiatives. New protocols, new file formats, transformation requirements and backend integration, secure file management – all of these needs can be accomplished with one product, simplifying compliance changes through one entry point that populates your entire ecosystem.

BIS for Security and File Transfer
The PSD2 Revolution and the Open Banking Era in Financial Services
SEEBURGERs agile, secure and scalable Business Integration Platform (BIS), can combine integration services such as managed file transfer (MFT), traditional application integration, and API integration together with end-to-end monitoring and business visibility.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Managed File Transfer
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), agreed upon by the European Parliament and Council in April 2016, will replace the Data Protection Directive 95/46/ec in Spring 2018 as the primary law regulating how companies protect EU citizens' personal data.
Security for Compliance; ISO20022, PSD2, GDPR, and Regulatory Compliance
In 2007 the Payment Service Providers Directive (PSD), which sought to create a single payment market in the European Union to promote innovation, competition and efficiency in the EU. In 2013, the European Commission proposed an amendment (that’s where the 2 comes from in PSD2), which aimed to enhance these objectives. It seeks to level the playing field among countries and among payment service providers, putting consumers in a better position, as they will benefit from increased competition. It also hopes to normalize new payment methods like online and mobile payments.
Core Banking Renewal
It is tempting to solve challenges in IT ecosystems by adding a new vendor to solve particular scenarios and use cases. But, over time, it becomes increasingly evident that a solution which encompasses all current use cases and inherently enables future changes through simple integration technology is needed to improve the overall capabilities of the banking infrastructure – in short, to shop patching up holes in a sinking boat and to invest in a new one.
Core banking renewal is a large undertaking, and a successful project does not minimize the complexity of teams and requirements involved. Instead, a consultation approach successfully incorporates the needs of customers, business users and the technical team, clarifying the complexity. Often use cases in certain departments overlap with needs in others, and the technology behind the seemingly specific requirements of one customer or department are easily met with a flexibility technology, which keeps all avenues open for utilizing data.
The simplification obtained through the removal of multiple solutions reduces the complexity in making changes to your products and services, internally and externally.
