first_img 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Analytics has been a prevalent topic for many years but never more prevalent in the credit union industry than it is today.  Just a few years ago, the topic hardly came up, but in 2017, it’s hard to find a credit union not talking about, or planning and budgeting for a proper analytics solution.  This excitement about analytics has gathered widespread attention, involving industries, companies, and individuals new to the field of analytics.Now that there is a lot of buzz around the topic, it is important to understand whose challenge, but more importantly, whose opportunity analytics is.  Analytics is the credit unions’ opportunity.  Not just one individual credit union, but all credit unions – the industry or movement.Credit unions need to understand the value of their data, not just as one credit union’s data, but the value of all credit union data.  Alone, as a single credit union, how do we compete with U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, and Citi Group, not to mention the FinTechs like SoFi?  We can’t.  The answer to our biggest challenges is something that is inherent to the credit union industry – collaboration.  While we might not be able to fully execute on analytics alone, we can do it together – as ONE. continue reading »last_img read more

Players should take blame – Dawson

In his programme notes prior to Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup quarter-final with West Ham, Dawson wrote: “It’s been a difficult few days for all of us, what with the result here against Liverpool followed by Andre’s departure. Tottenham captain Michael Dawson admits the players are culpable for the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas as manager for unacceptable performances.center_img “He was well liked in the dressing room and would always want things to work out, but it just wasn’t meant to be. We wish him well. “I know Andre came out after our heavy defeats to Manchester City and Liverpool and said that he took full responsibility, but when the team on the pitch loses in that fashion, the players have to stand up and realise ourselves that the performances haven’t been acceptable. “Those results were painful, the way we lost and the goals we conceded. “As a defender and as captain of this club, I look at myself first, but all players have to take responsibility for what has happened. “The lads were devastated after Sunday’s game, of course. Losing any football match is disappointing, it happens to every team. “But to lose 5-0 at home and 6-0 at City is not good enough. All I can do is apologise to those who turned out to support us.” last_img read more
