van den Berg-Foren 2020

Every year in spring our van den Berg Forums take place in various cities.

This year we were on tour in Hamburg, Munich and Frankfurt.

On 18.02.2020 we opened our “city tour” in Hamburg. In a small group, we were able to hold intensive discussions with our participants and listen to various lectures on the topic of “payment transactions”. In addition to updates from the Euro Banking Association or the Deutsche Bundesbank, topics such as “Compliance”, “Request-to-Pay” or “ESMIG” were also placed.

On 03.03. the event continued in Munich. Among others Volker Heinze from Unifits reported about our cooperation for a real end-to-end testing as support for a successful TARGET2 migration. Khanh Nguyen from our company and Oliver Kühn from TeamBank AG jointly gave the participants a review on the Instant Payments project. A practical report on joint projects with our customers is always very popular with all participants, so that we presented another field report, this time on the topic of “SEPA-Card Clearing”, presented by Christoph Stawinoga from our company and Sven Husmann from Société Générale, at our next event in Frankfurt on 4 March.

We completed our tour with the user meeting on 05.03. in Frankfurt. Here our customers are updated annually about technical news of our payment transaction system vdb/PPM and we discuss intensively about changes and wishes. The topics T2/T2 consolidation and gpi were also discussed in greater depth here.

Thanks to all participants and we would be pleased to see you again on 29.09. in Aachen. Please register here already now.
