“I didn’t realize how many different departments at CU*Answers review ideas and the development process that they go through. It’s impressive to see how many eyes see the various ideas and became understandable how it takes time to implement. I would recommend for any credit union to attend and become more knowledgeable and involved in the software development process at CU*Answers.”
-Kevin Finneran, Diversified Members CU

This boot camp was designed to give credit union executives hands-on experience in owning and crafting solutions. Over the course of a year, participants spent a total of 8 days working with CUSO insiders on the roadmaps and approaches for creating databases that yield value to credit union leaders and teams. The What Makes Data Valuable Executive Boot Camp will focused on…

Brainstorming with CU*Answers data architects and credit union peers around the data available to CU organizations.

Working as a group to identify the characteristics of data that help discern the difference between information and knowledge.

Creating a foundation for all CUs in the cuasterisk.com network to up their game for a future based on intuition from data.
