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.

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
