The SimCorp Dimension Academy is a com- prehensive training program encompassing the core concepts inherent in each func- tional area within finance, inclusive of front office, middle office, and back office func- tions. The Academy focuses on the func- tionality, procedures, and necessary tools for implementing and integrating SimCorp Dimension.
The objective of the course is to equip participants with standard implementation tools, provide an overview of the SimCorp Dimension implementation process, and build up the participants’ competence to optimally adopt SimCorp Dimension in daily tasks.
The Academy is a three-week, full-time training pro- gram. The first two weeks incorporate financial and technical principles within the SimCorp Dimension environment. The training alternates between instruc- tor presentations and hands-on exercises. Participants are then expected to complete a short implementation project assignment. The course concludes with a test.
The course is a mixture of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations in SimCorp Dimension, and hands-on exercises.
This course is relevant to all people that participate in the implementation of SimCorp Dimension or parts of this software system, and/or users that have broad responsibilities in relation to the system, such as functional/ application supporters, developers, quality assurance specialists, system managers, sys- tem operators, and IT staff that might need to change configurations of various batch jobs or services within the system.
All new employees in SimCorp with a function related to SimCorp Dimension participate in this training program.
Financial knowledge is an advantage. No prior system knowledge is required.
