First Technology Solutions announced yesterday that it will begin marketing Year 2000 services nationwide through First National Bank of Omaha’s BANK to BANK program. The Year 2000 services will be primarily focused on an organization’s computer systems including LAN/WAN, midrange and mainframe environments. BANK to BANK focuses on providing community banks traditional and innovative banking products to keep them competitive and independent.
First Technology Solutions services include hardware and software impact analysis, inventory of existing hardware and applications, and conversion cost estimation. Other services include risk assessment, organizational planning and project coordination for the organization.
First Technology Solutions can also provide remediation services to bring the organization’s computer environment within compliance. In addition, FTS offers clean management services to keep the computer systems compliant through the year 2000.
For larger organizations, First Technology Solutions offers an exclusive family of software tools, Y2KSOLVR, for impact assessment, source code modification and clean management on midrange and mainframe computers. Y2KSOLVR was developed within First National Bank of 0maha to complete their Year 2000 analysis.
“Use of the Y2KSOLVR suite of tools and its testing methodology saved the bank millions of dollars in completing our remediation effort. We were able to complete our effort at least six months earlier than the proposal from a major vendor with less than 1/5 of the resources. You have to see these tools to believe what they can do. The methodology used for enterprise testing is truly unique,” said Clayton Marsh, Vice President of Systems Development at First National Bank of Omaha.
First Technology Solutions is a subsidiary of First National of Nebraska. First National has more than 6.1 million customers, more than $7.3 billion in assets, is a top 25 Visa and MasterCard issuer and a top 10 Visa and MasterCard processor.Details
