BIG place for CUs to share code

 Permanent link
DENVER (5/1/14)--Credit union technology consulting firm Best Innovation Group (BIG) this week launched its new website--a destination where credit union technology professionals can join a financial technology community in which programming code can be shared.

Visitors to the site can also review video presentations and tutorials, scan industry innovation reports for the latest technology, and participate in open technology forums that spark ideas.

"There are questions I always wanted a source to answer," said BIG's John Best. "When I started Best Innovation Group, I knew that there was an opportunity for credit unions to share the load in innovation, but I have yet to find a newsletter or a single source that would provide insights into what others are doing, or specific details on how something works. We hope to answer these questions and more."

BIG aims to seek out cutting-edge companies eager to get into the financial marketplace. The firm's website will use multimedia to provide visitors with insights on emerging technologies, jumpstart development teams with sample code projects based on research, and educate staff and boards on upcoming innovations.

There are four sections to the website:
  • Video vault provides access to the BIG video presentations, tutorials and webinars;
  • Prototypes allows visitors to download blueprints, whitepapers and code for the latest innovations before they become available to the public; 
  • Innovation Report offers updates on what's new in the industry and how it can affect credit union business; and
  • Community provides access to a community of vendors, developers and credit unions; allows visitors to participate in open forums; and post articles on technology.
