Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ: FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, announced today that Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), based in Hauppauge, New York, has selected the DNA™ account processing platform and over 20 complementary Fiserv solutions to accelerate growth. The $4.9 billion asset credit union will use the integrated Fiserv solutions to drive efficiency and service for its members.
As one of the top 25 credit unions in the nation and a Bauer Financial 5-star rated institution, TFCU wanted an account processing platform that could help improve operational efficiency while enhancing service for its diverse and growing membership of over 237,000. After a thorough review of the industry’s leading vendors, TFCU selected Fiserv.
“With Fiserv, we’ll be able to drive efficiency through a cohesive solution set that is intuitively designed,” said Robert G. Allen, president and CEO of TFCU and a 2014 Credit Union House Hall of Leaders inductee. “At the center of it all, DNA will give us real-time access to the data and tools we need to expand member relationships with targeted products and services. We’ll be able to respond quickly to a changing market with leading solutions from a single provider we can trust.”
TFCU selected DNA for its open architecture and member-centric design – factors that will allow the credit union to easily integrate complementary solutions while maintaining a 360-degree view of its retail and business relationships. Developed using contemporary, standards-based components, DNA provides TFCU with 24/7 real-time processing, scalability and robust retail, mortgage and commercial banking capabilities.
With DNA, TFCU will also have the ability to add new functionality with integrated core extensions, called DNAapps™. TFCU can create its own DNAapps using the DNAcreator™ development toolkit or download them from the DNAappstore™ – the first collaborative online marketplace for custom core applications.
“For TFCU, upgrading its enterprise technology to be more flexible and scalable is essential to the credit union’s growth strategy,” said Steve Cameron, president, Open Solutions Division, Fiserv. “DNA and the integrated solutions from Fiserv will scale with this progressive credit union as it expands into western Long Island and enable it to improve efficiency and service through new capabilities from Fiserv.”
In addition to DNA, TFCU will implement Velocity™ for loan origination, Prologue™ for financial accounting, WireXchange® for wire exchanges, AML Manager for anti-money laundering, Voice Response for DNA, the CRM and Business Intelligence suite for DNA, and additional solutions for item processing, card and statement production, and credit and ATM/debit cards.
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 has been recognized by industry-leading analysts for its technology, user experience and breadth of functionality, including two recent awards from CEB TowerGroup for “Best-in-Class” product management and customer-centricity.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

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...

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. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

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.
