Solution and SWIFT Service Partner since 1999, has launched an industry-wide survey to rank acceptance and adoption rates for new SWIFT services and products for Payments and Securities.
Over the past few years, SWIFT has announced many changes to their messaging services, standards and interfaces â some change mandated, and most voluntary. At the same time the banking industry faces a wide range of regulatory and compliance initiatives. This Survey seeks to determine the industryâs reactions to the timing, the cost and the consequences that are tied to SWIFTâs product and service innovations.
Is this new proactive role of SWIFT a shared vision?
Pre-registered Sibos delegates were asked in September to rank their view on four specific topics that are affecting our industry:
o SWIFT and the evolution of a single market in Europe
o Attaining Critical Mass for New SWIFT Services â XML and SEPA
o New SWIFT Infrastructure
o Value of new SWIFT Services in their Line of Business
The process of gathering industry viewpoints will continue through Sibos. Peter Marshall, Swissrisk CEO explained, âSibos is the one time of year when the entire SWIFT community gathers to exchange views. We encourage SIBOS attendees to participate in our Leadership Survey and benchmark their own opinions in real time.â
On-going results of the survey are being broadcast live from Stand M03, next to the SWIFT Stand and directly adjacent to the Lunch Area in the main exhibition hall. Sibos attendees are invited to stop and register their own views (and receive an indoor competition boomerang as a thank you gift). After Sibos, everyone who has requested to see the final results will be sent detailed statistics and a full length report.
