CU*Answers Introduces New Team to Emphasize Data Analytics and Data Warehousing for Credit Unions

CU*Answers, a 100% credit union-owned cooperative CUSO, announced the new Asterisk Intelligence team at its Annual Leadership Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan, last week. The CUSO is reorganizing its internal analytics experts into a team that will focus on two major projects: data analytics and data warehousing for credit unions.

The Asterisk Intelligence team joins CU*Answers’ Management Services group, and is led by Keegan Daniel, vice president of Professional Services, a role in which he has already successfully developed the Earnings Edge brand at CU*Answers. He will continue to manage the Earnings Edge suite of solutions while bringing his experience and business skills to the new Asterisk Intelligence team.

Keegan notes: “I look forward to demonstrating the value of data as this team goes to work for credit unions as a bench of data analyst experts. A key element of our team’s vision is to support credit union efforts to establish their own business intelligence teams, develop their data strategies, and navigate the increasing market for external data warehouses.”

The Asterisk Intelligence team has already launched an online store offering 15+ analytic solutions, with more on schedule to be added in the coming weeks. Their initial work with data warehousing is currently comprised of intense development sessions in preparation for two brand new data warehouse solutions, the first of which will launch November 2017.

CU*Answers’ expansion of data warehouse strategies with new storage, structure, and customization options represents one of the most aggressive approaches on the market today from a core processor in support of credit union-directed database management and of 3rd party data exchanges.
