The CU Analytics Ecosystem
A Technology Platform for Today, Built for Tomorrow
The CU Analytics Ecosystem is comprised of a network of credit unions interconnected through a common data platform (leveraging the CUFX standards) that is powered by OnApproach M360 data integration middleware. The CU Analytics Platform is a collaborative ecosystem that will create communities of users, data scientists, and application developers. The CU Analytics Ecosystem will enable several technologies that would not be possible without the collaboration of the industry, such as:
1. Insight Platform for Predictive Analytics – The M360 data integration middleware normalizes, encrypts and transports data between credit unions and massive industry data pools to dramatically increase the accuracy of predictive models. The output of these models can be sent back to the respective credit unions where they are integrated into the M360 middleware to provide valuable insight for managers.
2. Big Data Technologies – The CU Analytics Platform will create the infrastructure necessary to power Big Data Technologies (such as Hadoop) for analytics on very large sets up of data, both structured and unstructured.
3. Blockchain – The CU Analytics Platform will also provide the foundational elements necessary to power the distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records secured from tampering and revision – see http://www.culedger.com/
4. Open Development Platform/Application Sharing – The CU Analytics Platform allows credit unions of all sizes and system configurations, as well as developers, to create and share analytic applications developed off of the common data platform.
