Volante announced today that its SWIFT solution has received the first gold label in the new category of SWIFTReady Messaging Data Services (MDS). Volante's messaging data services map data coming from business applications into messages and files that are ready to be supplied to any financial counterparty through SWIFT interfaces. They also parse message payloads transferred from SWIFT and transform them into formats supported by back-office applications.
SWIFT criteria for the SWIFTReady MDS label include supporting SWIFT standards, validation against syntactical and semantic rules, transformation of the messages between different formats, and deployment of run-time SOA messaging components that can be used by interfaces, middleware and financial applications.
"Volante successfully passed the tests for the MDS certification, which requires extensive and modular messaging support," said Eric Meirlaen, business analyst at SWIFT.
