MUFG Union Bank, N.A., is a full-service bank with offices across the United States, providing a wide spectrum of corporate, commercial and retail banking and wealth management solutions.
Union Bank’s dilemma was how to deliver a quality, low-cost product to its business units that would enable them to derive business value from their data much faster. The bank also needed a more flexible approach to data warehouse development and sought faster time-to-value.
With WhereScape® RED, Union Bank now has automated and agile Microsoft SQL Server development to deliver fully documented business-critical data marts. The metadata management, data lineage, and auto-generated documentation that WhereScape provides are key to Union Bank’s compliance efforts.
With WhereScape automation, Union Bank rapidly scoped, prototyped, and built a business facing data mart in less than 8 weeks, compared to as long as 8 months, the time it would have taken using its previous development methods. Union Bank’s consumer-lending data mart has been a great success, resulting in other business units requesting similar assistance.
