Treating data as a critical asset to drive innovation

Our world is changing faster than ever before, requiring innovative and resilient businesses strategies.

“Build foresight capabilities for financial, operational, and digital resilience.”


Commercial Banks, Investment Banks, Credit Providers, Investment Funds and Insurance Providers have been subject to rapid technical and social developments over the past few decades. The building blocks of these organizations are changing on a continuous basis and is largely supported by transactional data integration. In addition, traditional physical channels are having to be balanced with evolving digital ones.

Few industries are required to manage as many systems and integrations as financial services at such high standards, and the trend is towards ever more such integrations to satisfy the demands from customers, regulators and to increase service capabilities through adoption and integration of new technologies. A desire for personalized services is driving the need to manage data for analytics.

Affirma provides a centralized and common design environment for data integration mapping and transformation definitions, ensuring traceability and consistency of data exchange implementations that can support this challenge.

AFFIRMA FOR Telecommunications

The rapid and unceasing growth in the communication industry places providers under constant pressure to adopt new products, services and technology, which requires continuous integration of new systems into enterprise data exchange. Standardization to a limited technology stack is impossible, to achieve.

The telecom companies have to upgrade their IT and connectivity structure and focus on offering voice and data services that are high quality, affordable and reliable. Network security has become a huge priority for the telecom providers, and they are facing new challenges that are powered by new technologies.

To launch your Affirma for Telecommunications you can start by utilizing the Information Framework (SID) as a reference model, a standard developed by TM Forum.  The Information Model can be made available in several formats which can be imported by Affirma, including UML and XMI.


"The Information Framework (SID) addresses the Communications Service Provider's need for shared information definitions and models."

To launch your Affirma for electric power transmission and distribution, Affirma utilizes for instance the Common Information Model (CIM) as a reference model, a standard developed by the electric power industry officially adopted by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
