    CHALLENGE

    The SAP Financial Services Data Platform (FSDP) is an SAP product developed from scratch for the core banking business within the financial services sector. The solution is based on SAP’s decades of experience with SAP Bank Analyzer and is therefore considered to be its logical further development. SAP FSDP is based on HANA 2.0 technology as the central data platform for analytical processes and the Financial Service Data Model (SAP FSDM). As a reference model, it includes a comprehensive conceptual and physical mapping of data from the domains Finance, Insurance, Accounting, Risk and Customer Analytics. The open source architecture of SAP FSDP favors the flexible integration of a wide variety of source systems and data. This flexibility and open source architecture pose increased challenges to data quality.

    It already starts with the loading process: Here, the requirement is to transfer all data of the connected source systems completely into SAP FSDP. However, dependencies between the technical entities as well as the adherence to functional consistencies within SAP FSDP must also be taken into account in the loading process. If data does not meet the quality requirements, audit-proof data corrections are necessary. However, the implementation of SAP FSDP specific loading logic and data management requires a high level of technical expertise and development effort.

      OUR SOLUTION

      ADWEKO data platform manager for SAP FSDP orchestrates all loading processes as a central module in the data delivery. All data is checked for consistency and quality before it is loaded into the data warehouse. With the user-friendly and clear monitoring cockpit, you can view the status and quality of the loading and intervene if necessary. The software takes over the task of load control and provides all the tools for checking, measuring and correcting the data. In complex data integration scenarios, this is the only way to obtain a comprehensive view of which data is available to all your customers and in what quality. You control the quality yourself.

      We have built our solution modularly to meet every need. There are a total of 4 modules for this purpose:

      LOAD CONTROL FOR FSDP

      The “Load Control” component is based on powerful logic that coordinates and processes the loading of data onto your SAP FSDP. In an initial step, all dependencies within SAP FSDP are automatically used and taken into account. The loading control then determines the optimal sequence of data delivery for your SAP FSDP and thus avoids inconsistencies. For example, to be able to create contracts, corresponding contract partners must first exist in the system.

      Inconsistent data records and information are identified at an early stage and not passed on. The same procedure is used for incorrect data records. The errors can be viewed in the “Load Monitoring” component and corrected with the Data Quality Management component.

      LOAD MONITORING

      The component “Load Monitoring” aims to determine the status of all data loads and make it available to the recipients. To achieve this, a data integration layer is generated for the HANA data warehouse, whose interfaces for the ETL tools hardly differ from the interfaces of the existing loading mechanisms – only functions for the loading control described above are added.

      During data delivery, all loadings are logged and the corresponding evaluation is stored in the HANA Data Warehouse in the form of a virtual datamart. The information is prepared and made available clearly with the help of SAP UI5. Based on this information, the business users can be informed about the status of the data relevant to them and perform the necessary actions based on this information.

      DATA QUALITY MONITORING

      Data quality monitoring is part of the web-based monitoring cockpit. The core functionality is to provide full transparency of data quality within SAP FSDP. The core component of the module is rule-based checks against which the data in the integration layer is checked.

      Based on our experience, we already supply numerous quality criteria and test rules. This includes classic consistency checks and dependencies between entities. But also mandatory field checks, format checks and field validations for semantic correctness are part of it. In addition, numerous business rules are available to business users. User-specific data quality check mechanisms are freely configurable at any time.

      Results from quality measurements are output in a clear and user-friendly manner. Information can be displayed at the level of individual banking entities or business domains. These can be grouped according to the underlying test rules.

      DATA QUALITY MANAGEMENT

      The “Data Quality Management” component is a logical addition to data quality monitoring and is also part of the Monitoring Cockpit. You will be provided with numerous tools and functions that will help you to clean up any data quality deficiencies that have been identified and to carry out any error corrections. Incorrect or incomplete data is collected centrally at this point and made available for post-processing.

      In this context, technical release processes and the automatic logging of changes ensure audit compliance.

      DATA MODEL

      Our solution basically uses the Financial Service Data Model of SAP FSDP and considers the conceptual and the physical data model (CDM and PDM) equally. Based on this, the product generates special HANA artifacts that best capture the complexity of the reference data model.

      This not only saves implementation effort, but also ensures that subsequent enhancements to the data model and HANA database tables on your SAP FSDP are directly reflected in all components of the platform. In this way, we provide a central building block that ensures stable operation, minimal maintenance effort and cost-efficient expansion of your systems.

      YOUR ADVANTAGES

      With our solution, SAP FSDM-specific plausibility checks ensure maximum data quality and system stability. Save time and money with efficient user-friendly data quality management and correct data quickly and audit-proof. In this way, you can meet the deadlines for your reports. As an SAP partner ADWEKO enjoys a close cooperation with the software manufacturer from Walldorf. This gave us the edge of being one of the first companies to get to grips with SAP FSDP at an early stage. We are also currently developing an integrative solution for SAP FSDP and Wolters Kluwer OneSumX in cooperation with SAP. This gives us the privilege to dive very deep into the technology.

      Rely on ADWEKO as your trusted solution provider and benefit from our many years of project experience in the banking and insurance environment!
