Research and Markets: Mobile Point-of-Sale (m-POS) Acquiring Solutions

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/j4jmcf/mobile) has announced the addition of the "Mobile Point-of-Sale (m-POS) Acquiring Solutions" report to their offering.

New Research Addresses Recent Trends And Product Development In M-Pos In The United States And Europe

Mobile point-of-sale (m-POS) acquiring solutions such as Square and PayPal enable small merchants to accept card payments and other electronic payments, and they offer convenience and other benefits to consumers and larger merchants. But many questions remain to be answered for the acquiring industry in the United States and globally to determine the best way to proceed. For instance, the acquiring business continues to deal with how to transition from traditional acceptance devices to devices that accept EMV chip cards, contactless payments, Quick Response (QR) code, Cloud, Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth low energy, or BLE), marketing offers redemption, and mobile wallets. These innovations demand rapid structural change, and industry participants have to hedge their bets on these technologies in the interim.

This new report on the US and European m-POS Acquiring Solutions market, Mobile Point-of-Sale (m-POS) Acquiring Solutions addresses these questions and provides the reader an update on some of the key vendors in this space.

In particular, this report discusses the importance of m-POS acquiring solutions, provides the reader an understanding of the emerging technology developments in the space, pricing strategies by these providers, how financial institutions need to address this market by either building a product or partnering with a solution provider, some of the challenges of the business both in the U.S. and Europe and new product development/innovations that a few of these providers are developing to meet the growing needs of both the merchant and the consumer.

The m-POS acquiring market and solutions continue to grow in the United States and Europe, comments Pradeep Moudgal, author of the report. The m-POS acquirers/providers that are opportunistic with their technologies, pricing, and user experience will have the most success in the years ahead.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer.

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media).
