In March 1989 I wrote a piece called "The Bank Automation Arena as I See It." The reaction was strong enough to motivate me to keep doing it - my way. But this time I needed someone to pay the freight. Here's an accounting - date, title, sponsor:

June 1989 #2 "My Mythical System for a Community Bank," ADP Banking Information Services Division (later BISYS, now Open Solutions)

September 1989 #3 "Systems Integration in a Banking Environment," Broadway & Seymour, now Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.

July 1990 #4 "Why Bankers Are Losing the Cream of the Crop," Citicorp Information Resources, now Fiserv

October 1990, "How To Work," Systematics, Inc., then Alltel Information Services, now Fidelity National Information Services

July 1991, "Who Said Choose the Software First," ACCESS Banking Systems, now Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.

October 1991, "A Cessna Citation, Three Successful Banks, and Dimension Software," The Kirchman Corporation, now Metavante

July 1992, "Why Do Small Banks Make More Money Than Big Banks?" Peerless Systems, Inc., now Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.

December 1992, "A Gourmet Recipe for Great Customer Service," M&I Data Services, name change only to Metavante

November 1995, "Outsourcing Revisited Six Years Later, Or Is It 36 Years Later?" IBM, still IBM

January 1999, "Every High School Graduate Doesn't Have to Go to College," Jack Henry & Associates, Inc.

Draw your own conclusions. Here's mine. "Old bank tech companies never die, they just get acquired."
