âVolante successfully passed the tests for the MDS certification, which requires extensive and modular messaging support We were impressed by the quality and completeness of Volante productâ said Eric Meirlaen, Business Analyst at SWIFT.
SWIFT criteria for the SWIFTReady Messaging Data Services (MDS) Label include supporting SWIFTStandards, in terms of mapping different data source into SWIFTStandards format, validation against syntactical and semantic rules, transformation of the messages between different formats (MX, MT), and deployment of run-time SOA messaging component that can be used by interfaces, middleware and financial applications.
The Messaging Data Service maps data coming from business applications into messages and files that are ready to be supplied to any financial counterparty through SWIFT interfaces. Reversely, it parses message payloads transferred from SWIFT, and transform them into formats supported by back-office applications.

Our goal is to offer maximum ease and simplicity in implementing SWIFT messaging in any business framework and any IT environment.â
