U+ Bank wants to improve the experience of its customers with predictive and adaptive analytical models that drive personalized decisions. Following the Pega-recommended approach, the project team performed the data mapping workshop and mapped their existing data model to the Customer Insights Cache. The data integration between the U+ Bank data warehouse and Pega Customer Decision Hub™ is not yet in place.

The business stakeholders used the 1:1 Financial Services data model to prepare a sample CSV file that has customer data that is similar to what you see in a production environment.

As the decisioning architect, your role is to import the customer data into the Customer Insights Cache.

Use the following credentials to log in to the exercise system:
