CUNA Mutual AdvantEdge Analytics announced it will work with Microsoft to develop a standardized cloud-based platform for the credit union industry that will allow credit unions to benefit from the scalability of leading technology and integration essential to a data analytics strategy.


“Working with Microsoft is a major step in our continued commitment to delivering innovation to the credit union industry and strengthening for the future. We are not only addressing the changing financial needs of credit unions and their members, we are leading the way by collaborating with one of the world’s most innovative companies.
