Cinimex ensured the availability of open API at Gazprombank
“We entrusted the project implementation to the Cinimex team due to the number of parameters: the necessary competencies availability, a live projects portfolio, experience in meeting the requirements for enterprise architecture and information security, as well as deep understanding of Gazprombank’s IT infrastructure” – commented Ekaterina Frolovicheva, Vice-President – Head of Department on Information and Technology Innovation of Gazprombank.
Due to its extensive experience, Cinimex solved customer’s tasks and met all the Bank’s information security requirements. IBM API Connect was chosen as the platform for building the solution.
“Functioning services that allow filling out applications for Gazprombank loan products through various partner channels is the result of our joint work. The system has already processed several hundred thousand different applications received through these channels. The future plans are to develop the API system with the business partners’ participation and to increase the number of services provided” – continued Ekaterina Frolovicheva.
“At the first stage of the project, it was important to show with a living example how open APIs work in the Bank, so the system was launched into operation with some non-functional limitations. Despite this, the solution now can withstand a serious load. Next step we plan to develop the system to the target architecture by ensuring the scalability and disaster tolerance due to the future connection of new partners and the predicted number of services growth” – said Olga Makhaeva, Cinimex Key Account Manager.
In addition, Cinimex plans to migrate the system to a new version of the IBM API Connect product, which has undergone numerous functional and architectural changes.
Cinimex introduced a new 1C:ERP system at Bang&Bonsomer
Cinimex was chosen as a partner to develop the new ERP system due to 11 years of successful cooperation with Bang&Bonsomer. The project involved modeling all the company’s business processes despite the tight deadlines.
“The modern 1C:ERP software product allowed us to optimize the enterprise operations and obtain concrete results, for example, reduce the time required to prepare a number of documents by 90%, and lead time by 15-20% and etc.” comments Andrey Guryev, Cinimex Director on Automation enterprise management systems, - Regarding the solution implementation, we integrated the 1C:ERP system with other corporate systems through the corporate data bus (ESB).The adapter we developed for ESB carried out the exchange with the new ERP system”.
The new system was fully integrated into the corporate IT landscape, including master data management. Simultaneously regulated and IFRS accounting in one database is the uniqueness of the 1C:ERP solution for the company. In addition, Cinimex developed individual settings for access rights in accordance with the Bang&Bonsomer requirements of the data security corporate standards.
Tommi Ekstrand, project manager at Bang&Bonsomer: “I was happy to see how professionally Cinimex and Andrei Guriev’s team handled the project together with our local project team. Especially I would like to thank Cinimex for their flexibility and ability to understand integrations in big picture – including Group needs. Russia is the biggest market for Bang&Bonsomer and therefore the management and the board closely followed the project. We had extremely tight schedule from the beginning but managed to start using 1C:ERP without any delays for our business. I am happy to continue our long co-operation in next 1C:ERP implementations”.
The project was carried out by an international team and under the supervision of Bang&Bonsomer IT management (ICT Steering Committee). The project was completed remotely: the team was located in different cities from Helsinki to Voronezh.
Cinimex implemented several large projects for the Russian Agricultural Bank
At the time of gradual change in the banking system and due to significant increase in information flows, the Russian Agricultural Bank needed to revise the overall integration platform architecture.
“The modernization of the bank’s integration platform was related to outdated integration bus replacement for a modern one, - said Nikolai Ulyanov, Director of the information technology department at the Russian Agricultural Bank, - Thanks to MIP implementation we together with Cinimex met the challenge of doubling the platform load capacity and significantly reduced the updating cost of dozens of bank systems during the migration to the new core banking system”.
In particular the work of Cinimex and “RSHB-Inteh” project team was focused on the message routine system (including the New Integration Bus (NIB) and the formation of routing control center); workstation with a centralized configuration management system; NIB local router; technological multiple device adapters; extended logging and alerts systems.
“Initially, Cinimex participated in the MIP architectural vision development, and subsequently the Agricultural Bank entrusted us with its implementation. Due to our expertise we provided the joint work of the old and new platforms at a fairly long transitional stage without degradation of service and productivity,” - comments Maxim Matrenichev, Deputy Director for Key Clients and Partners of Cinimex, - “We implemented new solutions bundled with compatibility adapters, nontrivial message routing scheme between platforms, services of transparent messages “interception” in the old format and their instantaneous conversion”.
Plans are to carry out the integration flows transfer from the previous platform to the MIP, the development of platform functionality through an improved logging system and an increase in overall performance. In addition, Cinimex will continue to develop new services for new core banking systems.
