Fiserv: Modernising the Galaxy platform

Galaxy®, a Fiserv product, combines integrated software solutions with a best-in-class data center to serve credit unions and their members. Designed by credit unions for credit unions, Galaxy makes it easy to deliver fast, convenient, and consistent member service.

When Fiserv tapped Advanced to modernise the platform, which was comprised of approximately 2.4 million lines of PL/I, tens of thousands of lines of Assembler (HLASM), and hundreds of scripts and macro files, it was running on proprietary hardware against a proprietary relational database. Galaxy’s underlying hardware vendor was in the process of phasing out its line of products, so the time was right to make a move to modern, open systems. This is the story of its successful modernisation.
