*Note upfront: Sander Veenstra is expressing his personal views and not the official stance of the ECB.

The European Central Bank (ECB) is the central bank of the 19 European Union countries which have adopted the euro. More than 3,500 staff members work for the ECB in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. During the last 20+ years, the ECB has witnessed a shift from in-house software development to outsourcing to large system integrators, which has led the organization to understand and embrace the importance of software health.

The Results


“Modern banks have become high-end IT companies. Today the “black box“ character of many systems is still dominant, which often causes unexpected and costly problems and also quickly translates into reputation damage. Based on my experience, I can confirm that certification adds great value by making software quality transparent and it creates a neutral understanding and objective basis for improvement.”
