Release 1.1 overview
Release date: 25 October 2021
Release 1.1 looks to provide system enhancements centered around mid-term broker changes and improvements to current system validations, following feedback from market users.
Mid-term broker change
The ability to change the broker associated to an active contract will ensure that there is only one registration per contract, regardless of how many changes have been performed. This will present a clear historic view of the contract for all participants, without the need to endorse the paper contract (unless contracts have been migrated from BAR) and with the ability to transfer multiple records at one time, if linked by renewal.
Data validation enhancements
Meanwhile, validation error message enhancements will provide more efficient navigation to error messages in DCOM, to enhance and speed up the process of identifying and correcting any data errors.
DCOM/DDM integration (foundational)
Release 1.1 also sets the groundwork for the integration with DDM, planned for go-live in early November 2021. Key configuration in DCOM as part release 1.1 will ensure contract data can flow through into DDM from 5 November 2021, improving data accuracy and saving time through reduced rekeying.
