Prior to selecting Aunalytics, the organization conducted a thorough evaluation of its technology operations and decided to avoid locking the company into a hardware environment for another five-year period. The IT leadership chose to focus its IT resources on applications, data, and integration priorities of the business instead of continuing to support hardware internally. Additionally, the IT team at 1st Source Bank sought to deploy a near-term cloud option and expand upon its backup and DR options in order to build a more flexible and fully redundant computing environment.
Another draw on the bank’s IT staff was server management, which Aunalytics will also oversee. And with future plans to implement more advanced operational analytics, 1st Source Bank plans to start a full data management initiative, taking its data strategy to the next level.
“When it comes to IT infrastructure, there are several things that we need to maintain control over: The customer experience, data efficiency and innovation,” said Inder Koul, Chief Information Officer, 1st Source Bank. “Customers are intimately linked with their data so it must be closely guarded, and innovation will allow us to test new and compelling services that will provide a range of new and thoroughly secure services. With Aunalytics, there will be a 360-degree view of managed activities and greater context to deepen our relationships with customers.”
