The Global Competence Center Payments Value Added Services is mainly developing and managing different custom made applications, which are differentiating UniCredit Group from competitors in the market.

From a technological point of view we are mainly focused on Open Systems technologies and based on this Tech Set we are developing value added payment solutions like e.g. “European Gate” as global payment routing platform which connects ~20 countries worldwide and “UCPayFX”, a sophisticated currency conversion platform for cross-border payments.

On top we developed a Business Monitoring Platform for all major payments. This solution is implemented based on State-of-the-Art Big Data Technologies, but as we are monitoring the whole payment flows for several product types, like International Payments, SEPA and High Care payments we have to connect the whole heterogeneous payments landscape of UniCredit Bank AG in Germany including outsourced process steps. For this we also deal with legacy technologies like Cobol, DB2 and IMS, even the main applications is implemented based on Splunk Big Data technologies in the Open Systems world.

Currently we are developing a Global SWIFT GPI solution for payment tracking based on Open Systems technologies to enable UniCredit Group bank in different countries to participate in the SWIFT GPI community as an active member.
