Despite challenging economical conditions, the cooperation between Swift and Incentage has continued to be very successful.
Hence, SWIFT has decided to renew its partnership with Incentage AG, a worldwide leader in EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) solutions for the financial services industry. Incentage AG is the sole commercial "SWIFT Regional Partner" for Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
The cooperation between SWIFT and Incentage has proven beneficial to numerous companies. Various banks and financial services companies have realised substantial cost savings within the messaging field. In the current economic environment, outdated infrastructures and obsolete processes have to be optimised. The drive to optimise investments has seen an emphasis on cost reducing projects.
SWIFT and Incentage have had a very successful partnership - closing numerous joint messaging projects in recent years. The cooperation between the two companies has been important to the minimisation of project risks for their customers. As a result, SWIFT was happy to re-confirm Incentage as the sole commercial "SWIFT Regional Partner" for Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
Felix Huber, CEO of Incentage AG, emphasises the huge potential of this partnership: "The credit crisis and ambiguous market conditions increase the need for financial institutions to improve their competitive positions. However, these conditions also create the necessary incentives to initialise the replacement of existing infrastructures and outdated processes. Worldwide standardisation of communication and message handling in the financial industry - driven actively by SWIFT - combined with our service offering consisting of the IMS Incentage Middleware Suite and IPC Incentage Process Cockpit, results in a unique offering of integrated service bus solutions."
