SEPA Converter z/OS
Effective host-based payments using the SEPA converter for z/OS
PPI AG offers the SEPA Converter to data centres managing host-based payments. The SEPA Converter for z/OS converts specific payment formats into SEPA formats and, in reverse, converts camt formats into the corresponding DTAUS or MT formats:
- DTA to pain.001
- DTA to pain.008
- camt.053 to MT940
- camt.054 to DTI
Additional conversions are available upon request.
DTA data are available as a file or in a DB2 database. During conversion, IBAN and BIC are delivered to the SEPA Converter in the DTA file or via a separate interface. When converting direct debits, required mandate data are supplied individually via an interface.
The SEPA Converter delivers a SEPA file as output based on Appendix 3 of the DFÜ (Remote Data Transfer) Agreement of the German Banking Industry Committee (Deutsche Kreditwirtschaft). Note that grouping rules for SEPA Direct Debits which differ significantly from the DTA format are generated to conform to the DFÜ Agreement specifications.
When converting bank account statements, text keys in the data can be converted via an interface individually instructed by the user. Account statement data are stored as a file or in a DB2 database.
The SEPA Converter can be integrated into the data centre’s batch processes. Streaming technology enables high throughput while limiting resource consumption. The volume of data to be converted does not affect resource consumption.
The SEPA Converter works best with PPI's EBICS-Client z/OS. It handles automatic sending and retrieval of SEPA files on the host.
