“Sirius” Integration project: Data migration in Serbia



2019 – 2021

OTP Bank



MINDSPIRE’s own data migration methodology, including templates, standards and principles related to banking data migration conceptual design, logical and physical mapping, data migration specific testing, documentation, reporting, error handling and cutover planning.

“Sirius” Integration project: Data migration in Serbia project’s scope and targets

After acquiring Vojvodanska Banka, OTP continued the expansion in Serbia with the merger of Société Générale Serbia (OBSR).

Smooth transition and integration of the IT architecture and operation of the two entities required migration of data from OBSR’s core and satellite systems into PUB2000 (Vojvodanska banka’s CBS).

Similar to the preceding integration project, due to the high volume and criticality of data, an automated, documented and audit-proof banking data migration process was to be designed and implemented.

Member of the Executive Board in charge of IT and Operations (COO) - OTP banka Srbija

“After our previous successful integration project in 2019 we continued with a more complex bank merge when COVID-19 caused unexpected challenges. Based on the previous positive experiences, we continued to use MINDSPIRE's services in the fields of data migration and program management in the Sirius Project as well and they clearly showed that by working from home and using collaboration tools, they can do the job as efficiently as by working on the bank's premises.”
