System integration

Standard systems are the main components of a modern IT infrastructure. They can represent processes and functions from the core business and from corporate and risk management systems, and are therefore an indispensable part of any forward-looking IT strategy.


Our services cover every aspect of the implementation process for your IT strategy as part of the overall system integration. This includes the selection and introduction of standard systems (often as a replacement for an older, existing system) as well as enhancements, operating support and maintenance (including release upgrades) for those systems. We have specialised in all of these areas since d-fine was first set up and have a proven track record of experience from hundreds of customer projects.


We can advise you at every stage of the system integration process. From the outline industry-specific design and data processing infrastructure through to customising, implementation, testing, data migration, staff training, commissioning and post-go-live support, you can rely on us for professional support. We pride ourselves on offering a thorough and customised approach to project management project management.


All of our tried and tested processes are highly specific and form part of an integrated approach delivered by a single provider. In many cases, they can take the form of individual packages or resources. This minimises any unnecessary loss of efficiency through conflicts. Our design principle allows for the cost-effective implementation of projects as well as efficient operation and maintenance. We place great importance on ensuring that industry-specific concepts and processes take full advantage of the functionality offered by the standard system. This requires a thorough understanding of system functionality and technical issues as well as hands-on experience. Naturally, d-fine can offer both.


Adopting this approach, we can implement the modules, applications and reports provided by the standard system as effectively and cost-efficiently as possible, with a particular focus on your requirements. We can effectively integrate the system into your specific infrastructure by installing interfaces and if required can also link to other providers' modules and libraries e.g. EAI solutions or valuation libraries.


We are familiar with the most important state-of-the-art systems and have close links to many leading vendors.
