SOA Platform for the European Central Bank (ECB)

My role was the Account Executive and Project Manager for a SOA platform implementation at the ECB. We designed, delivered and operated a SOA integration platform for the network of European Central Banks that significantly reduces communication complexities, reduces efforts and increases speed to market.

Situation: The ECB had a very complex set of interfaces within itself and also with the other Central Banks in the Eurozone. In addition, extremely high data security and data quality standards required an extraordinary (personnel) effort and did not scale well.

Approach: Design, implementation and run of a fully automated interface architecture platform. (Technologies: Java 2/XML/WebMethods/Oracle RDBMS)

Key accomplishments:

  • Successfully delivered on time and on budget – with onshore and nearshore teams. Still run by Accenture today.  The solution proved its success during the 2008/2009 market crisis.
  • Delivered various projects in the Technology Consulting space: security, data center performance, introduction of distributed agile development teams (SCRUM).
