The initial trigger for this project was the introduction of ISO 20022. However, Erste Group also found benefits from a pure business perspective. By implementing Accurity Glossary, and using its process-to-data mapping, Erste Group was able to integrate with ARIS toolset through a REST API to easily import all their process descriptions including additional attributes associated with those processes.
The pilot project showed them that they could describe their processes easily and were able to get a visual representation of the interconnected data in the payments area.
Cristian Cengher, Erste Group’s Product Owner Cross Border Payments and the lead on the pilot program, is confident that if all interconnected processes in the bank are at the same level of documentation details, the Erste Group will ultimately be able to describe all processes across all business lines and easily allow all participants to use the information.
Having implemented Accurity Glossary within the pilot project, Erste Group are able to quickly assess the impact of any changes to data on captured processes. When implemented across the organization, the solution would allow all business lines in Erste Group to quickly assess project impact on all aspects of the company. Initial estimates indicate a time saving of between 20 and 30 person days in projects per year as Accurity Glossary would dramatically reduce the amount of manual analysis required in IT projects.
