Swift Selects Quantum4D to Provide Data Interface to SwiftNet

Share article

Swift is now using Quantum4D’s holographic analytics software platform to improve its ability to model its global network and understand its structure.

Annually, as many as three billion messages go around the world via the Swift network. The challenge was to see how new developments in next generation interfaces might improve Swift’s ability to see and communicate insights on messaging flows with their community. “The complexity and volume of our data – without even factoring in external economic and market factors – simply overwhelms and defies expression in page-based frameworks like charts and spreadsheets. While we do not look at the content of the messages, we needed to look towards the future and think about innovative ways to access information about our network’s usage that went beyond today’s standard offerings,” says Laurent Desnouck of Swift.

With Quantum4D, Swift gains access to an interconnected universe of dynamic 3D workspaces containing visual representations of the Swift network by region, country and BIC levels. This new collaborative work environment is allowing Swift to see and explore their data more effectively providing faster access to deeper insights on their network and its structure. “The Quantum4D interface is unlike any reporting tool we have ever seen before. It gives us the ability to explore ideas and discover insights that could have been easily overlooked without Quantum4D,” says Desnouck.

“We are seeing how the combination of a new visual interface with traditional statistical approaches amplifies our ability to better understand the structure of our network,” says Gottfried Leibbrandt, head of marketing at Swift.
