Minneapolis, MN (January 22, 2018) – The Analytics and Financial Innovation (AXFI) Conference (, the premier educational event for financial services professionals serious about analytics and financial innovation, is proud to announce the first ever Digital Transformation Showcase to take place at the 2018 AXFI Conference.

Previously known as the Credit Union Industry Analytics Best Practices Competition, the Digital Transformation Showcase will again provide an opportunity for credit unions to demonstrate their successful practices and compete against their peers before a panel of judges. While the preexisting version of this competition solely regarded analytics best practices, the Digital Transformation Showcase will now highlight impressive credit unions making strides in both analytics and innovation.

The top six (6) credit unions will be selected to present in the Digital Transformation Showcase: three for their analytics work products, and three additional credit unions for their demonstrations of innovation in action. Each finalist will have the opportunity to pitch their work product/innovation in a 15-minute presentation at the 5th Annual Analytics and Financial Innovation Conference in Minneapolis, MN on Tuesday, June 12, 2018.

A panel of credit union expert judges will pick the winners of each competition based on the following criteria: 

  • How will the idea benefit members and their financial wellbeing?
  • Does the idea create a positive financial impact for the credit union?
  • How can the idea benefit the credit union industry?
