ISGN CorporationTM (“ISGN”), a leading provider of end-to-end technology solutions and services to the U.S. mortgage industry, today announced that AnnieMac Home Mortgage, a Mount Laurel, N.J.-based residential mortgage lender, has implemented ISGN’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Compliance RiskCheckTM to evaluate risk against the CFPB’s requirements. AnnieMac Home Mortgage selected the multi-user option under a 12-month subscription, which is renewed annually.
Dozens of new CFPB rules have taken effect over the past two years and more changes will continue to be released throughout 2015. ISGN’s RiskCheck is the only Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), cloud-based risk assessment tool available in the market today, and is designed specifically for lenders and servicers like AnnieMac Home Mortgage that are in need of a cost-effective, efficient risk evaluation solution to comply with the new and changing CFPB requirements. CFPB Compliance RiskCheck enables AnnieMac Home Mortgage to utilize a web-based system to conduct an end-to-end review of its policies and procedures. The platform contains a series of approximately 600 questions, which are broken out by three categories – compliance management, originations, and servicing – and then by area of risk.
The cloud-based self-assessment tool provides several help features including best practice sample answers, live compliance assistance and links to compliance regulations when completing the answers, which are then analyzed automatically using taxonomy in line with CFPB regulatory guidelines to calculate the residual risk. AnnieMac Home Mortgage will be able to generate a detailed report including compartment risk weightings, trends and high risk items, which can then be provided to regulators and to executive management for action plans.
“Failure to comply with the CFPB’s requirements can lead to severe consequences, and as our organization continues to grow, it is imperative that we address any risks that could result in non-compliance,” said Joseph Panebianco, CEO of AnnieMac Home Mortgage. “Keeping up with the latest CFPB regulations is challenging, but ISGN’s RiskCheck is a practical, reliable solution that simplifies the compliance management process.”
“To remain competitive, profitable and compliant, lenders should invest in innovative technologies that automate mortgage compliance with a quick break-even point and high ROI,” said Paul Imura, chief marketing officer of ISGN. “Leveraging a tool like RiskCheck can eliminate the research, guesswork and confusion over changing regulatory requirements. We are pleased to have AnnieMac Home Mortgage as one of our key customers to demonstrate the power of this much needed innovation.”

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
