As business demands change, underlying payments infrastructure must adapt. Operations and IT teams are expected to address changes by delivering new services, preserving existing investment and minimizing impacts to end users.
Typical challenges organizations are facing include:
- Providing access to existing SNA-based payment applications across TCP/IP backbone networks
- Supporting payment applications to participate in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to take advantage of industry standard web services
- Protecting their payment applications regardless of how they are being accessed.
Working with ACI, companies can confidently preserve their investment in their underlying payment infrastructure even while migrating to new technologies. ACI’s suite of payment integration products provides a range of communication services to enable message exchange among disparate applications on multiple platforms and enable secure web enablement of payment applications.
