Hitachi in Oceania

Improving reliability, performance & data security

Overview

The Credit Union Australia (CUA) is Australia's largest customer-owned financial institution, providing banking products and services to over 400,000 customers. Wholly-owned by its customers, the institution's profits are reinvested to create more competitive products, better interest rates and lower fees.

CUA proactively promotes greater competition within the Australian financial services industry to ensure customers get the best deal. In the past few years, CUA has collected multiple awards from industry and press bodies for its products and customer service.

To build on its success, CUA needed to overhaul its data strategy, so it brought in Hitachi Data Systems, which it now considers a strategic partner.
