The goal of this project was to create an application for managing global compensation awards and liabilities. The project cost 200 Million CHF, and was delivered to the business on time with great success. This would include integrating with an existing compensation application. We first had to intercept the liabilities (stock, cash, FX, etc.), then process audit trails, profit and loss, and write to the Global General Ledger. At this point, the liabilities were then sent to group treasury or the market for execution. After liability execution, this application would have to distribute the assets with the appropriate settlement instructions. Security and secure audits were of high priority on this project.
