"Cloud computing" generates a lot of buzz, but come learn more about what progressive credit unions are actually doing today.  What workload or applications are being migrated?  What lessons have they learned?  Join three credit union technology leaders as they share what has been working for them.

  • Examples of what we run in the cloud and what we don’t and why.
  • What special considerations are made to secure the things we do choose to run in the cloud
