IBM Data and AI Ideas Portal for Customers


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against products and services offered by the IBM Data & AI organization. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).

Expected FTM-MER NOT to split bank/location or Prefix/Suffix

Expected FTM-MER NOT to split bank/location or Prefix/Suffix.

Field 22 - for MT305 / MT600

Field 22C - for MT300, MT320


For example, current MERVA:

Party Ref Party

PBBEK0 0175 PBBEPX


FTM-MER:

Party Prefix PBBE Party Suffix K0

Ref 0175

Party Prefix PBBE Party Suffix PX


Hence, user expectation to not split Prefix/ Suffix for future mapping purpose.

Ref. Case #: TS005025936

Additional Information [8 Mar]:

Objective: Mapping exercise will be part of Sprint 2 project, to ensure the interface and mapping of information from Source System to FTM-MER is in order.


This mapping is from Source System (Equation System) to FTM-MER and from FTM-MER to Intellimatch.

In current MERVA System, there is only one fields (both information of Party Prefix & Suffix are combined) instead of separate fields provided in FTM-MER, refer to example below.

Therefore, user doubt that whether the FTM-MER can identify what is the "Party Prefix" or "Party Suffix" when source system remain unchanged to provide the same format of information.


For example:

Source System (Equation) / Current Merva System:

Party Ref Party

PBBEK0 0175 PBBEPX


FTM-MER:

Party Prefix Party Suffix

PBBE K0

Ref

0175

Party Prefix Party Suffix

PBBE PX
