17.14C Database Management: Tool Spotlight for CEOs

CEO School


Every credit union today that counts on a vendor’s technical solution needs to rely on their ability to understand, utilize, and drive good database techniques in order to up their game and their vendor’s game.
Database management will help you get more from CU*BASE as a toolkit and from all CU*Answers solutions as owners and product‐development contributors. In this course, we will review key tactics and the CU*BASE database toolkits that fuel your return on core processing and ancillary solutions.
