Unisys enables SOA capabilities to payment systems

By : |November 17, 2006 0

LAS VEGAS: Unisys Corporation announced the Unisys SOA Vision suite, a set of payment processing products comprising web services that enable clients to build, maintain and capitalize on the benefits of service oriented architecture (SOA) in a distributed environment.

The new vision of SOA suite enables clients to incorporate new products and services within their enterprise faster while reducing IT complexity and overall cost of maintenance.

“Our strategy is to initially deploy SOA Vision for our distributed capture line. Because the Web Device and Web Perfect Image Suites are based upon service oriented architectures the door is open to expand our offerings into other non-payment-specific products,” says Gary Wallen, vice president and general manager, Unisys Payment Systems.

According to the company release, the advantages over traditional approaches to distributed computing includes Lower implementation costs through increased component reusability and sharing of services across multiple applications, Improved communication among multiple platforms through web services and Simplified management and streamlined support for large networks through centralized applications and tools.

The Unisys SOA Vision suite comprises two primary modules – collections of integrated web services that enable operating system interdependency and help ensure suitability of images for electronic exchange:

Web Perfect Image Suite simplifies the management of Unisys Image Quality, Security, Usability and Recognition products, streamlining secure image analysis and providing near-perfect images prior to presentment.;

  • Web Device Suite manages distributed capture devices, such as the Unisys SourceNDP, MyVision X, and UEC Series payment processing systems with a single interface driving those devices, reducing implementation time and associated costs.
  • Web Device Suite is designed to respond to client demands for centrally managed networks and address client requirements for thin client solutions. Also, Web Device Suite offers the PerfectMICR capability, which yields near-perfect MICR read rates up to 99.7%.

“We feel the Unisys web service suite will further enhance our distributed capture solutions and optimize seamless integration into thin client networks,” says Jacques Bourget, Athic General Manager.
