Canadian Western Bank finds value in Validata DevOps
Validata is feeling valid as it has been selected by Canadian Western Bank (CWB) to support its QA and DevOps initiatives through its unified DevTestOps platform.
Headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta, CWB has a business and personal banking network of 40+ branches. CWB is also a user of Temenos’ T24 core banking system for its commercial and retail banking services.
Azfar Karimuddin, VP information services at CWB, says Validata was selected due to its “proven Temenos integration capability in other successful implementations” in Canada and worldwide.
Earlier deals for Validata in Canada include two credit unions, FirstOntario and Integris.
CWB will be using Validata’s DevOps and continuous testing platform for its release automation and management of all Temenos release packages (i.e. build control “Bcons”, TAMs and core updates).
To accelerate data provisioning and data environments management, CWB will adopt Validata’s dynamic data platform and its Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) offering (V-Conn).
DaaS will eliminate “significant” infrastructure costs (i.e. storage) and will deliver data to the project teams faster and “significantly” accelerate the pace of development and testing.
