$265 Tuesday, June 15, 2021 10:00 AM Register

Between 8-10% of banks and credit unions annually review whether their core system is robust enough to help them support their customer base and grow their business. A Core Systems Selection, as covered in this session, is the process that the organization goes through to determine if it is time to migrate to a new core platform.

For Financial Institutions (FI’s) that do not have the internal resources to do this themselves, there are a handful of consulting organizations that can outsource the systems selection process. Some FI’s just want to complete their own systems selection, either because they can’t afford an outside consultant, or they just want better control of the process internally.

This session will give financial institutions a peek inside how one systems selection consultant organizes the selection process, from the initial gap analysis through RFP, vendor scoring, and ultimately negotiating a contract.

Whether your FI’s is in the process of changing out your core vendor, or any of your other major IT providers, this session should provide insight into how to organize your process should you opt to “do it yourself”.
