Everyday Superheroes

This week marks the beginning of the holiday season with Thanksgiving occurring this Thursday for those of us in the U.S. The next few weeks are a time traditionally filled with parties, family gatherings, gifts, and a reflection on all that has happened in the past year. It’s also a time when we recognize our good fortunes, and our thoughts turn to helping others.

We at ModusBox like to think of ourselves a little bit like superheroes, or at least awesome sidekicks to the real superheroes, our clients. However, outside of the work we do, our ModusBox family proves that they are worthy of the title everyday superhero. We are lucky to be surrounded by caring people who give both time and resources to their community all year long, and we’re proud of all of them. Continue reading Everyday Superheroes

Case Study: Interoperability Key to Sound Credit Union Liquidity Visibility Project

Credit unions face many of the challenges of traditional banks with the added concerns special only to this type of financial institution. A credit union must equalize efforts in asset management, modernization, digital channels integration, and income realization with being a member mentor – offering services and relationships that members can’t get anywhere else.

In today’s financial environment of balancing customer service and self-service, technology can no longer be seen as a siloed portion of the organization, but as an integral tool to reaching each and every challenge a credit union faces.

Announcing Mojaloop.io – An Open-Source Software Platform for Financial Inclusion to Uplift the World’s Poor

At the core of ModusBox’s driving principles is transformation. While the day to day reality of our business means building connections that provide companies with the tools they need to digitally transform their organizations, transformation means more to us than APIs.

That’s why ModusBox was thrilled with the opportunity to become a partner on an open-source project that could support financial inclusion for the world’s poorest people and help expand access to banking resources.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation brought together partners, including ModusBox, Dwolla, Crosslake Technologies, Ripple, and Software Group to create the Mojaloop platform, announced recently at the Sibos conference in Toronto.

4 Challenges You Face When Planning to Integrate JD Edwards

For many companies, their ERP – or enterprise resource planning software – is the lifeblood of their organization. These powerful systems help companies manage and streamline multiple critical business processes under one roof. Having a single, centralized system for your finances, human resources, supply chain management, e-commerce solutions, and customer service results in a more complete view of your company’s data.

Or at least, that is the idea behind an ERP. However, as today’s business systems have evolved, the need to be able to integrate your ERP across a diverse, even heterogeneous, IT ecosystem has grown. But ERPs, like JD Edwards, haven’t always played nice with other systems. As a result, any integration project involving an ERP can be up against a number of significant challenges to be successful. Continue reading 4 Challenges You Face When Planning to Integrate JD Edwards

Community Development – ModusBox’s Own Alan Vezina Strives to Bring Python Users Together

We at ModusBox are proud of the passion that our team has for their chosen vocation. We know it’s more than just a job, and that participation in groups, events, and projects make ModusBox a better team and a great place to work.

Will Blockchain Modernize the B2B Supply Chain?

Supply chain management is a common – and critical – topic among CIOs. The supply chain has grown faster than business, with chains being fragmented and geographically dispersed. Add into that the lack of transparency due to isolated systems and siloed data, and it’s no wonder that the B2B supply chain has bubbled up to the critical list for IT leaders.

Enter a new and interesting potential tool in IT’s tool chest – blockchain. Blockchain’s feature set checks off some of the biggest challenges facing B2B organizations today. Namely, understanding the full scope of a product’s path to market in a transparent, secure, and immutable way.

MuleSoft Connect17 Wrap Up

Last week was a whirlwind for us here at ModusBox. We spent much of the week at MuleSoft’s Connect17 conference (and the weeks before prepping for it). It was a lot of work, but worth every second.

We saw old colleagues, met some new ones, learned a great deal about what MuleSoft has in store, and how others are using the product.

So much went on last week that we’d thought we’d take a minute to reflect on a great event. Continue reading MuleSoft Connect17 Wrap Up
