Our DNA

IDEAS inspire INNOVATION.

Annette Steenekamp - Head: Software Development

I am born and bred in Pretoria, matriculated at Afrikaans Hoër Meisieskool. My passion for computers were the reason to choose a career in technology. I studied BSc Computer Science at the University of Pretoria. My career path with the group started in 1997 as a contractor, evolving to designing systems and managing a team of developers. Payments and banking systems had been in my blood ever since, I am learning something new every day. As part of an innovative team, we aim to develop and support the best systems and integrations solutions that our clients need.

My personal motto is :“The only constant in life is change, you have to adapt or die. I choose to adapt.”

My hobbies include: traveling, horses and photography.

Summary of the Bank System

The system is built on Caché from Intersystems.

 

It is English based. Branches work on an online web portal, where bank accounts are opened, debit cards are issued and the client's enquiries are handled. Certain functions are performed by the Head Office, i.e. 24 hours Operators (Monitoring the system), the FICA department (Compliance and Documentation), the Support department and Client Care.

 

The transaction switching - and processing of transaction applications are largely developed in Clarion, with  an ODBC interface to the Caché database.

 

The system is best suited for bank customers with clients in the lower income group.
