Wilmington-based financial technology firm Apiture’s choice of a tech partner enabled it to move its clients from a legacy data system to the cloud-based Amazon Web System (AWS).
A recent news release stated that Apiture, which serves hundreds of banks and credit unions across the U.S., chose Austin, Texas-based TrustGrid to complete that project in just one year’s time.
Use of the AWS platform rather than the legacy FirstData Data Center, said Apiture COO Chris Cox, will allow Apiture client institutions to enhance customers’ remote and online banking experiences.
“We did this migration to AWS to take advantage of all the great benefits of modern, cloud-based infrastructure,” Cox said, adding that those benefits include scalability, reliability, cost effectiveness and speed of code deployment.
“The services we offer are the same; a [financial institution] customer wouldn’t necessarily notice the change, except maybe in faster response times,” he added.
Connecting its clients to the cloud network required Apiture to find a partner that could install hardware and services at each client data center.
“TrustGrid made that super simple for our clients,” Cox said. “It involved no work for them and enables connections between [the financial institution’s] data center and the Apiture AWS environment.”
