Has your credit union missed the cloud computing “boat”?

Considering the majority of credit unions do not consider themselves early adopters of technology I normally wouldn’t express any concern. But hello! – The early part the cloud adoption phase is over, that ship has left the dock, the race has begun or whatever catchy phrase you want to apply – the key point is the paradigm has shifted. Cloud computing is here.Where?Everywhere from Amazon and Microsoft all the way to your corner grocer offering accounts you can store your recipes on and as a bonus they be paired timely coupons!Well, if that’s so true, then where is the hesitation coming from?Fear perhaps? – Highly unlikely. Credit union leaders are known to take bold steps to provide services to their members. So once the early adopter timeframe had passed the strategic shift should mainstream.Need for control? – Again, not buying it. Credit unions have been using the cloud for decades in a sense (at least those that were running their core via a “service bureau”. These systems were hosted elsewhere. Your data packets went “somewhere” outside your building to get to the host. I realize this is oversimplified but it could be reasoned that the service bureau model has evolved into today’s cloud model. continue reading »last_img read more

Johnson ‘lost respect’ for Mourinho

first_img Johnson, who left Stamford Bridge for Portsmouth in summer 2007 – shortly before the end of Mourinho’s first reign – before moving on to Anfield two years later, claims he lost faith in the Portuguese after being dropped ahead of a big Champions League game against Barcelona. “It was difficult for me under Jose at Chelsea because there was a moment when he said I deserved to play on merit,” the 29-year-old told the Daily Mail. “He said if I played well in the next game I would play the week after. I got man of the match so he couldn’t drop me. Press Association Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has outlined just why he believes Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is a better man-manager than Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho.center_img “Then in the next game he said the same thing and I got man of the match again. Then we had another game and after that Barcelona. I remember speaking to my agent and saying, ‘He won’t play me in this game because if I play well then he has to play me against Barcelona’, and I knew that wasn’t going to happen. “He didn’t play me in that game and from that moment I just lost it and thought, ‘Well, how am I meant to respect you now? It’s just finished.’ “Brendan wouldn’t do that. He’s shown that if you’re good enough you’re old enough and you’ll play in the big games if you deserve to. So, in terms of man-management, Brendan is definitely better.” last_img read more
