Banks now have a real market proven alternative application for their NonStop platforms

SINGAPORE, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — BPC Banking Technologies, the leading provider of Open System e-payment solutions for the global financial industry, today announced it had completed the porting of its SmartVista switch solution (SmartSwitch) to HP’s Integrity NonStop platform.

The HP Integrity NonStop server is the platform of choice amongst many tier 1 banks requiring a fault tolerant environment within their e-payments infrastructure. In taking the strategic decision to port SmartSwitch to the NonStop platform, BPC was conscious that many of the world’s banks are actively seeking alternatives for their legacy e-payment solutions running on NonStop servers.

The porting project took only three months to complete and was undertaken with the invaluable support of HP’s Bangalore, Technology Center.

“There is a level of uncertainty in many of the world’s banks as to the direction they should take in modernizing their e-payments infrastructure,” commented Vasily Grigoriev, CEO BPC Banking Technologies. “With our port to HP’s NonStop platform banks now have the real alternative of keeping their fault tolerant infrastructure, while enjoying the benefits that SmartVista brings as a modern, scalable and market proven e-payments solution.”

“HP has been an extremely supportive partner during the porting project, providing both expertise and technology,” said Rajan Narayan, Managing Director, BPC Banking Technologies, AP and LAC. “We have a significant opportunity here in Asia Pacific to win new business from the region’s banks and together with HP are looking forward to supporting them in their migration to SmartVista.”

“HP believes that the BPC’s SmartVista technology is an excellent example of a game changing Cards & EFT processing platform that will enable HP customers to launch new products faster and at a lower price point than current implemented technology,” commented Sandeep Kapoor, Director for NonStop Enterprise Division, Asia Pacific and Japan at HP. “It is a testimony to the investments that HP has been making in modernizing the NonStop architecture for newer & modern applications like SmartVista to port and take advantage of the platform availability and scalability. The porting was accomplished in such a short time, demonstrating an open environment that the newer NonStop systems bring to the market.”
