Volante Technologies announced today that Volante Designer for SWIFT has once again received the first certification for the 2011 label in SWIFTReady Messaging Data Services (MDS). In certification testing, the application earned perfect scores in both message transformation and validation tests.
"The fact that Volante Designer scored 100% in both tests is evidence of Volante's meticulous implementation of SWIFT defined rules," said Filip Versluys, Head of Partner Management for SWIFT, "and confirms the credibility of this application as a comprehensive messaging data solution. The MDS certification is the most advanced integration category SWIFT recognizes, enabling users to accelerate any type of SWIFT-related development."
SWIFT criteria for the SWIFTReady Messaging Data Services (MDS) label include comprehensive support for SWIFT Standards, such as validation against syntactical and semantic rules; transformation of the messages between different formats, support for various SWIFT directories and deployment of run-time libraries in various modes including SOA environments that can be used by financial applications.
The Messaging Data Service maps data coming from business applications into messages or files that are ready to be supplied to any financial counterparty through SWIFT interfaces. Reversely, it parses message payloads transferred from SWIFT, and transforms them into formats supported by back-office applications.
"We are proud that, once again, Volante is first to successfully complete the SWIFTReady MDS certification tests. What this means to our customers, present and future, is that the same speed, precision and ease of use is there to expedite their SWIFT projects," said Vijay Oddiraju, CEO of Volante. "In addition, we turn around annual SWIFT updates for our customers early each year, giving our customers plenty of time to deploy the new standards well in advance of November deadlines. This is why Volante is the integration technology of choice to leading financial institutions, exchanges and technology vendors around the world."
Volante technology includes powerful development tools for mapping, integration and offline testing, metadata capture and management, and creation of Web forms for data entry and cleansing. Volante totools work with any software, network and infrastructure environment without requiring dedicated infrastructure.
