State of the (Credit) Union, Part #6 - The Great Debate: Where Does Data Analytics Belong?
Credit unions are at the pulse of America, and day-to-day business comes with many responsibilities, challenges, and opportunities. State of the (Credit) Union is a series of round table discussions led by credit union leaders, for credit union leaders, and hosted by Finastra. Each session covers one topic that allows you and your team to hear from peers about the latest trends in the industry. You will walk away with ideas, insights, and perhaps even new acquaintances to learn from and work with.
In the credit union industry, there is a heavy and unhealthy dependence on sending data to 3rd party vendors for analysis. The major concerns with this model are security and data ownership. Member data is priceless and your members trust you to keep it safe, so a breach can be devastating to business and reputation. Should credit unions build a department for data analysis that enables them to run the business and create new opportunities, or continue to outsource it to another company?
