Our task was to design, implement and operat a system for international credit-scoring. Including the modelvalidations, the processing of losses and the necessary risk reporting.

SAS Architecture for Banks

Our task was to setup an archtitecture concept, the authorization concept and the international deployment of SAS platforms in numerous large banks. Furthermore we monitored the use and expansion of the systems by constantly keeping the concepts and implementations up-to-date.

SLA Monitoring for Bank

The project focus was on designing and developing a framework to provide data for the monitoring of SLAs between IT service providers and the affiliated banks. Here, we replaced the customer’s in-house solution with the SAS Solution ITRM.

Reporting Platform for CRM

Our task was to conceive and develop a reporting platform for a multi-partner program. Here, more than 2,500 affiliated branches were provided with detailed reports about business developments.
