Busey Bank Turns to CSI to Provide Solid, Responsive Tech Foundation

In a move to lay the foundation for the bank’s growing technology needs, Champaign, Ill.-based Busey Bank ($3.5 billion in assets) has selected Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), a provider of end-to-end technology solutions that empower financial institutions to remain competitive, compliant and profitable, to provide both a new core system and other technology solutions to meet IT management and compliance needs. Busey selected CSI’s NuPoint core solution to provide cloud-based technology and help increase operational efficiency across the bank’s 43 banking centers in Illinois, Indiana and Florida.

Busey’s executives praised the ease of use, functionality and capabilities of NuPoint, but said the primary factor in selecting CSI was the service-oriented culture that matched the bank’s values.

“While improving core processing was a major focus in our search for a new technology partner, we wanted to work with a company that matched our focus on catering to the community and customers we serve every day,” said Van A. Dukeman, president and chief executive officer of First Busey Corporation. “We found CSI to be a company that values its customer relationships and remains focused on the communities in which it operates. The combination of CSI’s progressive technology offerings and positive cultural values made them an ideal partner to work with us.”

Busey Bank will implement CSI’s NuPoint solution, a comprehensive, customizable core banking platform that supports numerous fully integrated solutions. By leveraging CSI’s infrastructure, resources and expertise, the bank will eliminate hardware and software investments required for in-house systems. NuPoint also enables banks to establish customized views of information for each user at their individual workstations.

“Operationally, we wanted a partner that was flexible and responsive to our constantly growing needs,” said Leanne C. Kopischke, executive vice president and chief information officer for Busey Bank. “CSI was able to provide a back-end integration to ensure that the front-end user experience was exceptional, which increased the value in our decision to select them.”

In addition to the NuPoint core solution, Busey has selected several other CSI products to further meet its IT management and compliance needs:

  • CSI’s Smart Branch Delivery system, which includes a custom website for each user, hosted at CSI, enables financial institutions to configure, maintain, update and deploy new branch capture programs without requiring a physical site visit;
  • ATTUS’ WatchDOG Pro, a web-based watch list screening solution that makes scanning against OFAC and other U.S. and international watch lists easy and efficient; and
  • ATTUS’ WatchDOG CIP, a web-based solution for developing a Customer Identification Program to ensure compliance with the USA PATRIOT Act, the Red Flags Rule and other federal laws and regulations concerning fraud, identity theft, criminal activity and terrorist financing.

“CSI has been successful for nearly five decades by focusing on serving banks with high levels of service and dedication, and financial institutions like Busey Bank value working with technology providers that share a customer-focused culture,” said Steve Powless, chief executive officer of CSI. “With the addition of Busey as our newest partner, we remain fully dedicated to providing a well-balanced mix of forward-thinking technology and valuable customer support to ensure our relationships with the banks we serve continue for many years.”

The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin,...
JavaScript is primarily a client-based dynamic scripting language most commonly used within web browsers as client-side scripts to interact with the user, browser, and communicate asynchronously to servers. If you have been part of any web-based development, odds are you have worked with JavaScript in one form or another. In this article, I'll focus on the aspects of JavaScript that are relevant within the Node.js environment.
Alibaba, the world’s largest ecommerce provider, has pumped over a $1 billion into its subsidiary, Aliya, a cloud services provider. This is perhaps one of the biggest moments in the global Cloud Wars that signals the entry of China into the main arena. Here is why this matters. The cloud industry worldwide is being propelled into fast growth by tremendous demand for cloud computing services. Cloud, which is highly scalable and offers low investment and high computational capabilities to end us...
One of the ways to increase scalability of services – and applications – is to go “stateless.” The reasons for this are many, but in general by eliminating the mapping between a single client and a single app or service instance you eliminate the need for resources to manage state in the app (overhead) and improve the distributability (I can make up words if I want) of requests across a pool of instances. The latter occurs because sessions don’t need to hang out and consume resources that could ...
Approved this February by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), HTTP/2 is the first major update to HTTP since 1999, when HTTP/1.1 was standardized. Designed with performance in mind, one of the biggest goals of HTTP/2 implementation is to decrease latency while maintaining a high-level compatibility with HTTP/1.1. Though not all testing activities will be impacted by the new protocol, it's important for testers to be aware of any changes moving forward.
"We've just seen a huge influx of new partners coming into our ecosystem, and partners building unique offerings on top of our API set," explained Seth Bostock, Chief Executive Officer at IndependenceIT, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
This week, I joined SOASTA as Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics. Given my background in cloud computing and distributed systems operations — you may have read my blogs on CNET or GigaOm — this may surprise you, but I want to explain why this is the perfect time to take on this opportunity with this team. In fact, that’s probably the best way to break this down. To explain why I’d leave the world of infrastructure and code for the world of data and analytics, let’s explore the timing...

You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.

Auto-scaling environments, micro-service architectures and globally-distributed teams are just three common examples of why organizations today need automation and interoperability more than ever. But is interoperability something we simply start doing, or does it require a reexamination of our processes? And can we really improve our processes without first making interoperability a requirement for how we choose our tools?
Cloud Migration Management (CMM) refers to the best practices for planning and managing migration of IT systems from a legacy platform to a Cloud Provider through a combination professional services consulting and software tools. A Cloud migration project can be a relatively simple exercise, where applications are migrated ‘as is’, to gain benefits such as elastic capacity and utility pricing, but without making any changes to the application architecture, software development methods or busine...
The Internet of Things. Cloud. Big Data. Real-Time Analytics. To those who do not quite understand what these phrases mean (and let’s be honest, that’s likely to be a large portion of the world), words like “IoT” and “Big Data” are just buzzwords. The truth is, the Internet of Things encompasses much more than jargon and predictions of connected devices. According to Parker Trewin, Senior Director of Content and Communications of Aria Systems, “IoT is big news because it ups the ante: Reach out ...
At DevOps Summit NY there’s been a whole lot of talk about not just DevOps, but containers, IoT, and microservices. Sessions focused not just on the cultural shift needed to grow at scale with a DevOps approach, but also made sure to include the network ”plumbing” needed to ensure success as applications decompose into the microservice architectures enabling rapid growth and support for the Internet of (Every)Things.
Our guest on the podcast this week is Adrian Cockcroft, Technology Fellow at Battery Ventures. We discuss what makes Docker and Netflix highly successful, especially through their use of well-designed IT architecture and DevOps.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Arch...
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
