Founded in 1957, Washington State Employees Credit Union (WSECU) is the second-largest credit union in the state with assets of more than $2.3 billion and serves more than 233,000 members from 20 branch locations in 15 cities across Washington state. As part of its ongoing focus on providing excellent service to its members, WSECU wanted to analyze information across all of its lines of business, drawing data from as many as 380 different applications. However, adding new data sources to the existing data warehouse was proving to be a time-consuming exercise that was too slow for the needs of the business.
WSECU turned to WhereScape®RED to speed up integration of new data sources into its "Data Warehouse 2.0", the name WSECU gave to the now enriched and flexible data repository. With WhereScape RED, WSECU can quickly add new high-value subject areas such as mortgage applications, investments, and others into the data warehouse in a matter of weeks. In addition to automating the development and operations workflows, WhereScape RED also automatically creates and manages the metadata and generates full documentation for the data warehouse.
