Confio's Ignite Software Improves Online Banking Services for Wescom Resource Customers 

BOULDER, Colo. - October 17, 2012 - Today Confio Software announced that Wescom Resources Group (WRG), a provider of software and technology service solutions for credit unions, has chosen Confio's Ignite for SQL Server as its database performance management software solution. Ignite's real-time database monitoring helps WRG deliver improved online banking services to its customers by resolving problems faster and providing better security and visibility. 

"Database performance issues can have a direct impact on our clients' critical business functions," said John Best, CTO of WRG. "With Ignite, wait time in the five biggest database servers was reduced from days to hours - a huge increase in throughput that directly benefited Wescom customers."

 WRG's MemberEdge electronic banking platform is the online banking backbone of more than 50 credit unions, serving more than 100,000 end users each day. Ignite for SQL Server offers WRG developers more visibility into database functions so they can ensure that each aspect of their customers' online banking solutions - from communications and bill-pay options to security and account integration - is performing at or above an optimal level.

 That additional visibility also helps Wescom flush out performance issues that can be extremely difficult to pinpoint. According to Best, "Ignite was able to help us identify when a vendor code was calling a stored procedure millions of times per day and causing extreme latency issues. With Ignite charts as proof, the vendor was able to make changes to eliminate this tremendous performance drain and get back to normal business function." 

 "Ignite for SQL Server enables WRG to maintain a chain of great customer service that starts with WRG clients and continues through to the many credit union members that rely on the company's online banking solutions every day," said Rich Adams, Confio Regional Account Manager. "With Ignite, WRG developers can drill down to exactly where performance issues may be happening and fix it before it interrupts that chain."

 Ignite for SQL Server is an award-winning software solution that identifies, analyzes and resolves performance problems affecting applications and users. Unlike other software, Ignite doesn't just show health metrics; it applies response-time analysis to correlate the most important performance data to build a complete picture of the database performance for the DBA, developer and DBA manager.
