Swift, the financial messaging provider for more than 10,000 financial institutions and corporations in 212 countries, today announced that a new free of charge iPad app, providing information on ISO 20022 initiatives around the world, will be launched during this year's Standards Forum event at Sibos.
Now in its 35th year, Sibos is an annual conference, exhibition and networking event organized by SWIFT for the financial industry and will be held in the Dubai World Trade Centre from 16 to 19 September 2013.
The new mobile application, developed by the Standards Forum, is called the ISO 20022 Adoption mApp. It will provide an easy-to-use global overview of initiatives adopting ISO 20022 as their messaging standard for financial business transactions. The app was created to address the increasing need to know who is adopting ISO 20022. The head of SWIFT Standards, Stephen Lindsay, hopes that "after the success of the ISO 20022 for Dummies book, this app will meet the growing need for information about ISO 20022 adoption".
The ISO 20022 adoption mApp will be unveiled on Tuesday 17 September during the 'not-so standard birthday party' held between 5 P.M. and 7 P.M. at the Standards Forum stand (Hall 8, stand E 120).
