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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
