TIMM™: The Complete Migration Solution
TIMM™ is a software-supported service that delivers defensible technology decisions and successful migrations between telephony systems. Different banks make decisions with varying levels of user consultation. Product selection can be facilitated at different stages of the TIMM™ process but in all cases we expect to:
- Reduce the number of lines with an evidence-based rationalization process.
- Achieve validation and rapid user acceptance for equipment selections and button layouts with an interactive tablet application.
- Automatically identify, locate and resolve database transfer issues.
Data from the legacy system, call logger and HR databases is ingested into the TIMM Hub™ so it can be worked on without disruption. The system analyzes user IDs, lines and buttons against usage thresholds to identify significant savings opportunities through the removal of underused lines and the selection of less expensive dealer boards, phones and soft clients. TIMM™ catalyzes the process to reach this point quickly.
Decision Making Support: TIMM Map™
This application was introduced due to the increased complexity of decision making that banks are facing as soft-voice-clients become more relevant to the trading floor, and especially to the support functions that surround it. TIMM Map™ is a hypothesis engine. It allows an analyst to input various parameters and then perform live “What-If?” analyses using a clever interface. A report is produced, quantifying the impact of different scenarios based on available data.
TIMM Viewer™ App
The TIMM Viewer™ shows the current turret display on a Microsoft Surface alongside the forthcoming replacement. Working with the trader, the consultant can use the touchscreen to prepare the new layout – in reality, the trader will normally grab the Surface and do it for themself. The first step is to go through underused connections identified in the data analysis validating their retention or agreeing their removal. They show up red on the screen and can be removed with a simple drag and drop.
Changes immediately update the data in the TIMM Hub™. Based on the validated data, the choice of new device can be made. The trader is able to drag buttons into place to achieve the optimum user experience on their new turret from Day 1. Once again the data is updated in real-time and translated for presentation to the new system.
TIMM Viewer™ takes the emotion out of migrations. It allows traders to take ownership of their new layouts and provides an extra level of data validation. TIMM Viewer™ can also be hosted on the client’s network along with a step by step user guide. This is the ideal option when trading rooms are globally distributed because transport and accommodation costs are kept to a minimum.
Trader voice migration involves the integration of data before its transfer between databases. TIMM Translate™ prepares and, as the name suggests, translates the data with precision. Telephony migrations can suffer infuriating uploads, even when moving to a platform from the same manufacturer with 99% accurate data. TIMM Translate™ uses an automated rules engine to identify small data issues that are automatically resolved. If any issues remain, the project manager is vectored straight into them for quick resolution without having to trawl through the whole data set.
Three Ways TIMM™ Can Save You Money
TIMM™ targets three key aspects of migration to deliver efficiency, precision and savings. You can perform the analysis and decision making process as a discrete project before committing to the full migration. The scale and complexity of the migration will dictate your required level of project management support.
