Integrating Morpho’s world leading biometric technology, the innovative
MorphoTablet™ comprises a fingerprint reader* and a
high-resolution camera to capture and check biometric data. Its
tamper-proof hardware and integrated encryption functions provide
enhanced security to protect sensitive data and associated transactions.
MorphoTablet™ is a high-quality data acquisition terminal with a 7-inch
touch screen. Light and compact, it is perfectly suited to all types of
operations in the field.
Using its advanced biometric functions, coupled with integrated card
readers (contact and contactless, including NFC), MorphoTablet™ can
easily verify people's identities in a wide variety of situations and
environments: on-the-spot ID checks, elections, benefit payments, school
tests, medical exams, access to secure areas, etc.
Users of this innovative Android-based terminal can stay connected
anywhere since the tablet supports WiFi, Bluetooth and cellular networks.
Police forces could also save considerable time by using
MorphoTablet™ to instantaneously collect and transmit, in total
security, information gathered during their investigations.
With MorphoTablet™, banks, insurance companies and other service
providers can acquire the data needed to open an account (personal
information, fingerprints, photos, signatures, administrative documents,
etc.), not only in their offices or branches, but also at customers'
doorsteps. The tablet also comes with a software development kit,
allowing companies to create tailored applications for their customers.
MorphoTablet™ is now being introduced to the public at the Mobile World
Congress, the largest trade show in the mobile phone industry. "With
MorphoTablet™, mobile network operators have a powerful device for the
swift and secure registration of customer data in the field,"
explains Yves Portalier, Vice President, Programs & Marketing at
Morpho's Telecom Business Unit. "MorphoTablet™ ensures that operators
can meet evolving data registration regulations, while also offering
customers an open-ended range of innovative services, thanks to our
software development kit."
* FBI-certified, this sensor complies with the PIV IQS (Personal
Identity Verification-Image Quality Specifications) standard.

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.

The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

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.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
