Posiflex (www.posiflexusa.com) increases functionality of three new terminals with projected capacitive flat, multi-touch, bezel free touch screens as a standard feature, at no extra cost. The XT5315, is a high performance touch screen terminal with a choice of three CPUs, capable of running demanding resource-intensive applications. The XT4015 touch terminal, previously with resistive touch, is now shipping with projected capacitive screens making multi-touch features now affordable. The HS2310, is an ultra-small all-in-one terminal with an integrated printer and MSR and is ideal where counter space is at a premium.

A 15 inch projected capacitive touch screen is a standard feature for the XT4015 / XT5315. The advantages of having projected capacitive touch include: 10-point multi-touch capability, a bezel-free 100% flat surface for a clean sleek appearance, a scratch-resistant surface to withstand the harshest environments, and works with gloves for maximum input flexibility. The mid-performance XT4015 and the high performance XT5315 have a collapsible folding base configurable for maximum viewing flexibility and reduced shipping costs.
Shipping soon, the high performance 15” XT5315 with projected capacitive touch screen has a choice of three powerful embedded Intel™ processors (Haswell) to choose from: Celeron® G1820 (2.70 GHz), Core™ i3 4330TE (2.40 GHz), or Core™ i5 4570TE (3.30 GHz) supporting up to 16 GB of RAM. Operating system options include Windows Embedded POS Ready 7, Windows 7 Professional and Windows Embedded 8.1. As the XT5315 uses embedded CPU and operating systems, long term support and availability by Intel and Microsoft are assured, critical for long term store roll outs. The XT5315 also has an optional powered USB upgrade kit with (1) 24V USB 2.0 port, and (3) 12V USB 2.0 ports for additional peripherals, eliminating power brick and cable clutter.
Available now, the mid-range performance XT4015 with a 15 inch projected capacitive touch screen that has three Intel™ processors (Haswell) to choose from: the Celeron® G540 2.5 GHz, Core™ i3-3220 3.3GHz, or the Core™ i5-3550 3.7 GHz supporting up to 16GB of RAM.
The HS2310 All-in-One solution, shipping soon, allows every inch of valuable counter space to be used. With a footprint of a standard receipt printer, this 10” projected capacitive touch screen terminal comes integrated with a 3” thermal printer, magnetic stripe reader, WiFi and optional secondary customer displays. The HS2310, just taller than a wine bottle, runs the same software image as the widely-deployed Posiflex XT3215 and KS7215 touch screen terminals. This means there is instantly a wide suite of applications that are seamlessly compatible, including self-service kiosk or POS systems for small and medium-sized hospitality, retail or convenience stores.
Posiflex has a long legacy of exceptional quality and rock-solid reliability. With rigorous third-party pre and post manufacturing and field testing since 1984, Posiflex reliability has withstood the test of time. Posiflex terminals range from budget-friendly workhorse models, to powerful terminals running virtually any application. A wide range of peripherals — including secondary displays, keyboard attachments, magnetic stripe readers, cash drawers, printers, and kiosks — round out the Posiflex solution. www.posiflexusa.com

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. ...

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...

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.
