Research evaluates the transition toward cloud-based POS systems and applications focusing on vendor solutions operating on hosted technology
Boston, MA - March 18, 2010 - A revolution is underway at the point-of-sale (POS). For merchants in several segments, solutions for payment acceptance need to be more sophisticated and more functional than ever. Along with the new demands of the merchant market, the payments industry has begun to explore new options for solution delivery.
Providers in the POS market are attempting to meet market demands by developing solutions that ascend beyond the last generation of POS systems. Increasingly, these solutions depend upon applications and services hosted within providers' secure data centers, as opposed to running locally at the merchant level. As the payment processing industry shifts more toward a model of host-based processing, the opportunities for remote terminal management and application delivery continue to appear attractive to merchant service providers.
Mercator Advisory Group's “Cloud Computing and Innovation at the Point-of-Sale: Toward the Cloud-Based vECR” report explores the transition toward cloud-based POS systems and applications by examining vendor solutions currently operating on hosted technology. Also discussed are innovations in the area of installed POS system applications, and the merits of keeping them in-house while so many are getting ready to move to cloud city. Security is not only the topic du jour for the industry, but for cloud computing as well and this report presents surrounding commentary. Mercator Advisory Group defines cloud computing and its implementations or its analogues generally within the payments space and specifically with regard to POS payment applications.
“In the new ‘there's-an-app-for-that' world, where cloud-based applications have become mainstream in customer facing environments, let alone their virtual ubiquity in the realm of business computing, payment processing providers and enablers have just begun to evolve their older cloud computing paradigms to truly deliver robust cloud-based solutions to the point-of-sale,” David Fish, Senior Analyst in Mercator Advisory Group's Emerging Technologies Advisory Service and author of the report comments. “This transition now seems to be accelerating in earnest, and could constitute the most prominent vector by which the POS revolution takes its course.”
