Compass Plus, an international provider of retail banking and electronic payments software to processors and financial institutions, has announced its first customer in Indonesia. The company, together with PT Infogram Telemedia as Compass Plus’ distributor for Indonesia, has completed an e-channel switching project for Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Nasional (BTPN). BTPN, Indonesia’s leading commercial bank, chose to migrate its legacy switch and card processing platform to the TranzWare product suite from Compass Plus, enabling BTPN to offer a full range of modern banking services to its customers.
The first phase of the project, which went live in April 2014, saw the bank implement a range of products to support their magstripe card issuing, ATM management and card personalisation. BTPN has also migrated local ATM shared network connections with PRIMA and BERSAMA as part of the scope of the project. The second phase will see the bank issue EMV cards to its customers following Central Bank of Indonesia’s regulation to comply with the NSICCS (National Standard Indonesia Chip Card Specification) by the end of 2015.
Kharim Siregar, IT Director at BTPN, explained: “Part of the BTPN IT strategy is to build capability on e-channel and be ready for high volume transactions to support retail banking initiatives. After a thorough solution selection process, the bank decided to implement ATM switching using TranzWare from Compass Plus, as, in our view, it is the best that met with the bank’s requirements. We went live with TranzWare in April 2014 after a six month implementation period. We are very pleased with the overall implementation and appreciate Compass Plus and Infogram Telemedia, as the local partner, for their commitment and contribution on this successful implementation.”
BTPN is a bank focused on serving and empowering the mass market segment, which is comprised of pensioners, micro & small enterprises, as well as productive poor communities. This business focus is supported by BTPN’s four business units, namely BTPN Sinaya – its funding business unit, BTPN Purna Bakti – its pension business unit, BTPN Mitra Usaha Rakyat – its micro & small enterprises unit, and BTPN Syariah – which focuses on customers from productive poor communities. Through the Daya program, a measured and sustainable empowerment program, BTPN provides training and information on a regular basis to enhance the capacities of its customers, thereby allowing them a chance to grow and improve their lives. At present, BTPN serves more than 2.3 million customers, through more than 1,200 office networks operating on an online real-time basis, spreading from Aceh to Papua.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Things are changing so quickly in IoT that it would take a wizard to predict which ecosystem will gain the most traction.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Adam Justice, vice president and general manager of Grid Connect, will review what happens when smart devices don’t work togethe...

In the next five to ten years, millions, if not billions of things will become smarter. This smartness goes beyond connected things in our homes like the fridge, thermostat and fancy lighting, and into heavily regulated industries including aerospace, pharmaceutical/medical devices and energy. “Smartness” will embed itself within individual products that are part of our daily lives. We will engage with smart products - learning from them, informing them, and communicating with them. Smart produc...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
