Washington Federal Selects Fiserv for Integrated Banking Platform Centered on Real-Time DNA Account Processing Solution

Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, today announced that Washington Federal, based in Seattle, Wash., has selected the DNA™ account processing platform and a host of complementary Fiserv solutions to better serve its nearly 600,000 customers. The $14.4 billion asset bank will use the integrated Fiserv solutions to drive growth through increased efficiency and an enhanced customer experience.

As one of the country’s 100 largest banks, Washington Federal required a robust enterprise platform to meet its aggressive growth plans. The integrated Fiserv solution will scale with Washington Federal’s growth and support the institution in driving value across its 235 branches located in eight western states.

“Our partnership with Fiserv is a transformational, long-term investment in the way we deliver value to our customers and stockholders,” said Roy Whitehead, Chairman, President and CEO of Washington Federal. “The unified design of DNA and its flexible, service-oriented architecture will help us roll out new products quickly and easily. Backed by the expertise of Fiserv, we will have an innovative technology platform to enable growth now and in the future.”

Washington Federal selected DNA for its open architecture and person-centric design – factors that will allow the bank to easily integrate complementary solutions while maintaining a 360-degree view of its retail and commercial relationships. Real-time 24/7 processing and integrated digital banking and payments solutions like Corillian Online®, Mobiliti™, CheckFree® RXP® bill payment and Popmoney® personal payment will enable the bank to deliver a robust banking experience via browser, smartphone and tablet. Washington Federal will use DNA along with Weiland Account Analysis™ and dedicated business online banking and bill payment services to attract commercial clients, while the Accel™ debit payments network and solutions for ATM processing will enhance the speed, security and convenience of the bank’s electronic and card-based transactions.

“Washington Federal understands that mobility, immediacy and ease are key to delivering banking and financial services that meet the needs of its customers, and we are honored to deliver the technology that will make their vision for creating additional value for customers possible,” said Jeffery Yabuki, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fiserv. “We are partnering with Washington Federal to deliver a winning and differentiated financial services experience for its retail, business and commercial customers at the intersection of enabling technology and superior relationships.”

Additionally, Washington Federal will implement TransferNow® for account-to-account transfers, Prologue™ for financial accounting, tMagic™ for DNA integrated teller capture and solutions for financial crime and risk management. Fiserv will also help the bank implement PEP+® for ACH payment processing and WireXchange® for wire exchanges. With DNA, Washington Federal has the ability to add new functionality through integrated core extensions available through the DNAappstore™ – the first collaborative online marketplace for custom core applications.

Fiserv is the U.S. market leader in account processing services, and more than one-third of U.S. financial institutions rely on Fiserv for account processing solutions and expertise. DNA recently won two CEB TowerGroup “Best-in-Class” awards for its product management and customer-centricity.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward.

Attendees learned how up-front planning allows for a clean sep...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
