The future plans of the bank are building management reporting, implementation of tax reporting, and application GAP-standards for liquidity management using data of the SAP BW warehouse."

"A project of this scale in the banking sector is a first in Kazakhstan and, perhaps, in the CIS countries, so the bank has no room for error: the implementation is bound to be successful. The main purpose of the introduction of storage is to provide a single source of information on all aspects of the bank, along with the tool to provide the required level of quality and development of the bank's business in general," said Askar Kusainov, deputy chairman of the National Bank of Kazakhstan.

The system is now transferred to the specialists of the joint team. In the short term, it is planned to build a system of management accounting and reporting for senior management of the bank on the basis of the data warehouse.
