Thomaston Savings Bank Selects Q2ebanking For Its Unified Platform, User Experience

Q2ebanking, a provider of highly secure electronic banking solutions for banks and credit unions throughout the U.S., announced today that Connecticut-based Thomaston Savings Bank selected its full suite of ebanking solutions to deliver a unified platform as well as consistent, easy-to-use interface to its retail and commercial customers.

In conjunction with a technology review and the selection of COCC for its new core system, Thomaston Savings also sought to add an ebanking solution that would seamlessly integrate with the new platform, eliminate the disparate, siloed e-channels previously used and provide the highest level of security. After much evaluation, Q2ebanking’s scalable, single platform proved the best fit to deliver an improved user customer experience while adding internal efficiencies.

“As we explored options to upgrade our ebanking solution, it quickly became evident that Q2ebanking offered the most innovative technology and a much more consistent, convenient user experience,” said Stephen Lewis, CEO and president of Thomaston Savings Bank. “Our IT team took a deep look at Q2ebanking’s architecture and was extremely impressed with the company’s proactive, ongoing security measures and methods for protecting customer data. Regulations are a moving target; however, we are confident that Q2ebanking stays on top of the changes and sets a high bar for compliance, which we value greatly.”

For more than 138 years, Thomaston Savings Bank has helped support the goals, dreams and futures of its customers by providing financial services of the highest quality and value. As part of the bank’s vision for the future of community banking, the bank will implement Q2ebanking’s entire platform including online, mobile and voice banking as well as bill pay services. The integrated solution enables both retail and commercial customers to use the same platform, therefore enjoying identical experiences. The e-channel will also support the bank’s back office by allowing employees to manage just one interface and point of administration, resulting in fewer redundancies and more efficient operations.

“Proactively planning for the future and how it will engage customers established the need for Thomaston Savings to assess its ebanking strategy,” said Matt Flake, CEO and president of Q2ebanking. “Shifting to the Q2 platform will enable the bank to avoid the complex, separate channels it once had to manage, while improving internal efficiencies and security objectives. We look forward to providing Thomaston Savings with the online and mobile banking tools that provide a better customer experience, engage both retail and business customers and empower them to conveniently transact at any time, from any location.”

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
