Favner offers expertise services within several areas in the capital markets space:

Business Analysis

Big technology investment/rationalization decisions require a solid foundation of facts. We help you collect and analyze these facts. Typical assignments are:

  • conducting a delivery, upgrade or system replacement pre-study
  • compiling a thorough requirement specification
  • participating in a system evaluation or selection process
  • identifying rationalization potential in a system environment and operational streamlining of associated processes and workflows.

Implementation

Be it a delivery, upgrade or system replacement project, we can contribute to all phases and levels in an implementation project:

  • analysis, design, coding
  • unit testing, quality assurance, user acceptance testing (this often overlooked area is one of our focus areas)
  • user training and hand-over to the support organization
  • project management and team leading.

Customization

We help you extract as much value as possible from an existing system installation by customizing and extending existing system functionality. Building proprietary solutions within a well-defined framework can be a highly competitive alternative to buying standalone solutions in terms of cost and time-to-market.
