Ellie Mae gears up for digital mortgage era with help of Amazon
Ellie Mae plans to more quickly adapt to an evolving digital mortgage landscape with Amazon's help rebuilding from the inside-out.
Ellie is migrating its infrastructure to cloud platform Amazon Web Services with an aim of supporting better efficiency, compliance efforts and product offerings. The cloud platform, offering services for databases, analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, among other capabilities, will help Ellie better automate processes while also reducing operating costs.
With this move, AWS will help Ellie become a more "agile organization" by supporting a quicker pace of innovation and reducing the time to market new tools and ultimately better serve banks, credit unions and mortgage companies of all sizes, according to the company.
"AWS gives us an unmatched set of cloud services and a highly reliable infrastructure to work with as we continue to build solutions that provide borrowers and lenders with the best digital loan experiences. As a result of early successes on AWS, we are confident that their services will continue to give us what we need to be nimble, innovate, achieve results and cut costs, while we grow and expand our business well into the future," Satheesh Ravala, senior vice president of cloud engineering and operations at Ellie Mae, said in a press release.
The migration to Amazon's cloud will help nurture Ellie's desire to innovate by shifting its focus away from database management.
"Ellie Mae is able to use the breadth and depth of [AWS] to be more efficient and innovative, refocusing their manpower and capital on ways to automate the mortgage lending process instead of infrastructure procurement and management," said Mike Clayville, vice president of worldwide commercial sales at AWS.
