Plymouth, MN (October 30, 2014)– OnApproach (, a leading provider of Big Data reporting and analytics solutions for credit unions, is pleased to announce the release of its Credit Union Big Data/Analytics Readiness Assessment tool.


The Credit Union Big Data/Analytics Readiness Assessment is designed to gauge a credit union’s preparedness to launch a Big Data/Analytics initiative and help develop an effective strategy for moving forward. 

For credit unions already in a mature environment, this assessment will identify opportunities to grow and enhance current capabilities.

The Credit Union Big Data/Analytics Readiness Assessment is comprised of 26 measurements of readiness.  Each measurement is assigned a grade based on the credit unions perceived readiness (1-5), which is then totaled at the end of the assessment.  The designated grade indicates a level of readiness and allows credit unions to determine if they are prepared to embark on their Big Data/Analytics journey.

Regardless of the grade, there are additional follow-up steps highlighted by the assessment that will assist credit unions to prepare for and carry out Big Data/Analytics initiatives.

Note: this assessment is based on the work of Ralph Kimball (See for more information.)
