Research and Markets: The Global POS Hardware and Software Market to Grow At A CAGR Of 7.84 Percent over the Period 2011-2015

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kxs4xt/global_pos) has announced the addition of the "Global POS Hardware and Software Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.

One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing adoption of EMV cards. The Global POS Hardware and Software market has also been witnessing the growing need for improved security standards. However, the slow adoption rate could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Ingenico S.A., VeriFone Systems Inc., First Data Corp., and Pax Technology Ltd., Epicor Software Corp., Micros Systems Inc., Oracle Corp., and SAP Corp.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Hypercom Corp., Heartland Payment Systems Inc., SZZT Electronics Co. Ltd., Equinox Payments, Cybernet Inc., and Spire Payments Ltd.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Hardware team said: ''The increase in cyber threats across the globe has necessitated vendors to incorporate advanced security standards in their point-of-sale (POS) systems. Hence, vendors are incorporating several security technologies such as signature capturing devices, and biometric sensors into the POS systems to secure payment transactions. Furthermore, POS devices are being incorporated with additional features such as touch screens, radio frequency identification, and bar code scanners to enhance the user experience. Furthermore, the growing number of stringent policies related to secure payments from governments of several countries will refine the technology to the greatest possible extent.''

According to the report, one of the main drivers is the increasing adoption of Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) cards. Standardizing POS terminals according to the EMV standards will catalyze the infrastructure development required to facilitate the use of EMV cards. Infrastructure development in turn will foster the adoption of POS terminals. Hence, the demand for POS terminals is expected to be high in the next few years. Hence, the size of the Global POS Hardware and Software market is expected to grow during the period 2011-2015.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
