Symitar®, a Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. ®, company (NASDAQ:JKHY), and Adapt Telephony Services, LLC, an Interactive Intelligence Platinum Elite Partner, today announced a strategic partnership that positions Adapt as Symitar’s unified contact center partner serving credit unions.
Brett Zbikowski, Adapt co-founder and chief strategy officer, says Adapt “has built highly compelling unified contact center solutions for the credit union marketplace, thus complementing the all-in-one IP communications software suite created by Interactive Intelligence. We have developed a growing portfolio of credit union member-centric applications enabling institutions to provide a unified member experience - and the highest levels of service – regardless of how any member wishes to communicate.”
Among terms of the partnership, Symitar representatives will market and reference Adapt’s expertise in contact center automation. Adapt will concentrate on building tighter integrations between member information at credit unions served by Symitar and how the members served choose to communicate. The partnership will capitalize on the trend to offer advanced communication tools and choices to enhance the member service experience and thus provide a competitive advantage.
Symitar and Adapt currently share credit union clients across North America. Adapt clients range in size from $100 million to $9 billion in assets. Adapt has deployed the Interactive Intelligence Customer Interaction Center® (CIC) all-in-one IP communications software suite at nearly 100 U.S. credit unions. Zbikowski adds “CIC’s real-time integration capabilities and its ability to be delivered through a single, simple user interface have led to the choice of CIC and Adapt at a number of Symitar credit union customers in recent years.”
CIC is built on standards-based, single-platform architecture running a wide range of contact center and enterprise applications, and offering extensive interoperability with existing systems. It handles all forms of member communications, such as calls, faxes, email, web chat, SMS, video, social media, mobile, workflow and online forms in the same manner. Deploying CIC requires minimal hardware, provides 100 percent redundancy across all applications, reduces IT administrative time and costs, and lowers energy use. Scalable, all-software architecture eliminates the need for multiple solutions, partners and integration points, thus reducing multiple points of failure. CIC’s all-in-one design provides credit unions with an economical way to deploy applications incrementally, enabling them to deploy applications as needed and lower their total cost of ownership as more functionality is added. A credit union can deploy CIC’s contact center, unified communications, and business process automation functionality to support its entire organization, including branch, remote and mobile employees.
According to Scott Burwell, Jack Henry market research, Adapt’s selection “is based on its long record of serving Symitar users with quality products and services. We are very excited about the potential of this partnership.”

This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
