MetaBank Saves 80% on Data Documentation Time


MetaBank, through its Meta Payment Systems (MPS) division, needed a platform that allowed MPS to have better controls around its data importation process.


MetaBank needed a platform that allowed the internal team to have better controls around the data importation process than their current methods. Also, there was no visibility into running SSIS packages; the logging was not consistent from one package to another.


Workbench documentation and auditing provided reduced time spent on internal audits, SSIS package monitoring, and a greater understanding of data lineage. 


Using SentryOne's recently acquired Pragmatic Workbench, MetaBank's MPS documentation is always up-to-date with an 80% reduction in documentation and auditing time. Plus, there is better data tracking and fewer bugs deployed.


“Our standards are the first line of defense, and an internal audit using Workbench is the second.”

— Ron Van Zanten, SVP of Data Systems Meta Payment Systems
