TERHULPEN, Belgium, UTRECHT, The Netherlands and EREMBODEGEM, Belgium, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Ultimate convenience for customers and billers with One Click Pay and Maestro
From now on, email invoices can be paid in a single mouse click, with One Click Pay and Maestro. UnifiedPost, PaySquare and Paybox are launching this new, fast payment method in conjunction with MasterCard in the Belgium market. The ultimate convenience of One Click Pay facilitates faster invoice payment. Energy supplier Eni Belgium is the first to offer this new payment method to its customers.
One click and it's paid
One Click Pay eliminates the need to enter reference numbers, invoice amounts and credit accounts. Only the initial email invoice needs to be paid using the debit card and the bank's card reader.
In subsequent invoices the same card information is automatically populated and encrypted, allowing the customer to make future payments quickly and securely with a single mouse click. Customers remain in control of their budget at all times by checking and approving each e-bill. Invoices are stored in PDF format in an online archive for two years.
Facilitating faster payment
The tool is suited for companies with a large number of recurring invoices, for example energy, water and telecommunications providers. With One Click Pay, businesses can simplify the invoicing processes and offer their customers ultimate payment convenience, facilitating faster payment as a result.
Retail Director Jan Dobbenie of Eni: "One Click Pay is right in line with our motto, 'simplicity in energy'. As a supplier of electricity and natural gas, we want to make a difference by offering our customers simple and innovative solutions. This new payment method is a perfect example of this."
David Dechamps, General Manager Benelux of MasterCard: "We wanted to bring a fast and easy payment solution for today's consumer which would also result in a reduction in late payments for businesses. This tool is available on the web right now but will soon be accessible on a variety of devices, including the smartphone."

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

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.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. 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.
