Treasury Systems integration (SAP, REVAL, FxALL)
Most clients have a wide range of Trading , accounting , data warehousing and reporting systems. Effective reporting and
analytics is possible only if the Treasury and related accounting data can flow in seamless manner from front - office to the
reporting and analytics systems.

The problem : large IT system integrators (SI) lack deep Treasury skills and in-depth knowledge of Treasury operations.
Therefore many a times they are not able to effectively integrate the Treasury systems to the accounting and reporting
systems. Due to the lack of Treasury skills, many important aspects of the data are not captured. The result is that with the
best of intentions, the resulting Treasury reporting and analytics is either inadequate of or a poor quality.

This is where, SAICAD leverages its experience in the field of Treasury and IT. Its consultants are able to work with IT system
integrators and design the optimum data interfaces and integration between systems. We are able to:
  • Extract the relevant Treasury data from different systems,
  • Analyse the data using different methods
  • Present the data in formats suitable to the clients needs.
