Company showcases Ascern™, its real-time predictive analytics tool

KINGWOOD, TX (October 6, 2015) — SMA Solutions, a leading international provider of transformative IT automation and business analysis tools for data centers of all sizes, today announced that the company was presented with a first-place award for its product demonstration during the Speed Round competition at the recent CUNA Technology Council Conference in Orlando, Fla.

Spanning three separate sessions, the Speed Round competition gave exhibiting vendors the opportunity to present a seven-minute demonstration of one of their products. SMA Solutions demonstrated the features and functionality of Ascern, the company’s cloud-based predictive analytics tool. Ascern was announced for general availability earlier this year at the CUNA Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, DC. The winners of the Speed Round competition were decided by audience vote.

“The competition was tough and we were being judged by some of the most progressive technologists in the credit union industry,” said SMA Solutions President Kathy Hooker Burress. “We were able to get Ascern’s message of greater efficiency through real-time predictive analytics across, and the audience responded favorably. As excited as we are to win this award, we are much more excited to be able to offer this important service to credit unions across the country.”
