Unisys issued a press release, outlining that they've developed a service oriented architecture to help banks migrate their current processing to a new platform. It should work fine with all kinds of technologies and database platforms. Interesting part is that Unisys has also decided to become value-added reseller for Clear2Pay. This confirms Clear2Pays prominent position.
While the news may appear to be a bit techy, the consequences are clear. We're heading towards an open panEuropean market, with open technology solutions that help achieve low costs for banks. Quite a bit different from the old days where IBM was the main provider of integrated proprietary hard/software.
