CASCADE Testing and Simulation


Clearstream Banking AG, Frankfurt (CBF) offers customers a testing and simulation environment.

Customer simulation for upcoming releases and projects

Via the customer simulation environment (IMS23), CBF offers guided customer simulation and related test cases dedicated to the enhancements developed by Clearstream.

The participation in the guided customer simulation is optional and not a prerequisite for admission to production for the launch date of the CBF Releases, the project Stock Exchange Transactions Go OTC (SET-GO) and Corporate Actions Harmonisation (CAH) – KADI DE Migration to OneClearstream Asset Servicing (OneCAS), respectively the introduction of T2S Release.

In some functional areas, dedicated test cases will be offered by CBF to support the simulation of business cases where specific test environment requirements are necessary. For the introduction of the project SET-GO CSD Migration (Phase 2) and the deployment of the T2S Release 6.0 on 4 July 2022, a common test approach has been designed. The related CBF July Release 2022 Customer Simulation will start in May 2022. For further details, please refer to the Customer Simulation Guideline attached below.

Customers wishing to participate in the CBF July Release 2022 Customer Simulation were asked to register by 18 March 2022.

Furthermore, to support the introduction of SET-GO CSD Migration (Phase 2), an updated version of the “SEME Generator” is available for download under “Attachments” below. The latest version of the generator enables the creation of the sender’s reference that will be used for the processing of non-CCP stock exchange instructions in custody type CSC and NCSC-T.
