Post Trade Forum in Vienna, Austria

We spoke on Quality Assurance and key challenges of delivering large post-trade initiatives:

  • Difficulties in coping with functional complexity experienced by the project team

  • Aligning tests correctly in batches that correspond to events in the daily life cycle, including multiple days

  • Accelerating the daily life cycle to speed up test execution and to cover Settlement Failure processes in testing within a reasonable timeframe

  • Accurately simulating and controlling test inputs from upstream systems and outputs to downstream systems

  • Management of complex Reference Data setup

  • Involvement of complex components such as Risk Management and Collateral Management systems

  • Test cycle turnaround time, client certification and test automation

We outlined some innovative Quality Assurance techniques and tools that can make a significant difference in addressing those challenges. Such tools can also be used for the actual migration for production systems.
