Core Transformation: Why it's Essential for the Future of Community Banks

This webinar is available in Archived Webinars.

Platforms, open APIs and cloud transformation are not a future concept—rapid change is happening TODAY.. While this is happening, consider that VCRs, audio cassettes, floppy disks and public phones are all from the same era as your legacy core platform. Community institutions simply can’t compete in this digital age with old technology; however, selecting a core banking vendor can be a daunting process. What do you need to look for? For starters, an open and proven banking platform is key to staying relevant.

In this webinar, you'll learn what’s important to protect your future in your core review, hear challenges about keeping a legacy core, and hear Seattle Bank's and Bank Midwest's experience with core transformation.
