IBM Canada, affiliated to International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), announced Tuesday that it has signed a 7-year, multi-million dollar strategic outsourcing agreement with Celero, a provider of digital technology and integration solutions for Canadian credit unions.

The deal includes secure cloud services, resiliency testing, threat management, disaster recovery support and process automation.

The transformational opportunities of moving to a hybrid IBM Cloud platform will result in Celero and our clients becoming more agile, resilient and forward-looking, which will ultimately translate to a superior experience for credit union members."
