The beating heart of TransUnion Information Group from day one has been a commitment to using distributed server based technology to deploy our solutions at pace and then continuously respond to the changing needs of our clients.
TransUnion started life unhampered by legacy technology, and that continues today. Our approach allows for distribution of infrastructure, software, data and services combining to deliver speed to market, cost effectiveness and with the exceptional robust availability and security our clients expect as standard.
Extensive use of virtualisation technologies has transformed the ability to provision services faster, maximise hardware utilisation, minimise cost and maintain leading levels of flexibility.
The flexibility is achieved by utilisation of technologies like Microsoft's .NET architecture in tandem with SQL Server databases that speeds development compared to many in our sector who are still toiling with cumbersome and expensive legacy software.
The hosting infrastructure are geographically distributed data centres built on technology provided by leading manufacturers such as HP, Cisco and NetApp. Utilisation of these leading, but industry standard, technologies ensure that our services are highly resilient and warrant that no single-point-of-failure exists within our live service infrastructure; they also enable scaling-up at whatever pace is set by the marketplace.
Time is money. Real time innovation updates and Daily Alerts mean our clients enjoy first mover advantage when a consumer's circumstances change.
Our services are fully Internet enabled in addition to deployment of a UK wide private client network which links major clients quickly, securely and in a manner which can provide highly robust end-to-end service level management. Client links utilise universal open standards for connectivity such as HTTPS utilising SSL to guarantee a secure connection. All interface interoperability is conducted using XML over SOAP compliant services ensuring a wide range of integration solutions, whatever a client's preferred technology.
We are delighted to have recently opened an Operations Centre in Kaunas in Lithuania. Our goal is to continue our strong track-record of market-beating growth utilising this centre as a spring-board - it will play a key role in ensuring that TransUnion has the right infrastructure in place to facilitate this continued growth across the entire group.
Change normally indicates either an opportunity or a risk. Our commitment to the latest technology is the enabler that allows us to work closely with our clients and make smart decisions that drive revenue and ROI.
The flexibility our clients seek is underwritten by robust governance including certification to:
