The ATM Industry Association today published a new industry guide entitled “Alternative Operating System Case Studies”.
“ATMIA has provided various industry forums for exploring and studying non-Microsoft alternative operating systems, of which the two most promising for ATMs of the future are Linux and Android,” Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA, explained. “In an increasingly software-centric business world, as we contemplate ATMs of the 2020s, the various migration paths being discussed in industry conversations around the world these days are nothing less than critical.”
The study was authored by award-winning industry consultant Eric de Putter, Managing Partner of Payments Redesign, with inputs from ATMIA’s Next Generation ATM Architecture Committee.
“This new guide dissects the features, specifications and advantages of Linux ATMs and Android ATMs, as well as WinCE-based retail ATMs, to provide a handy picture for strategic analysis and preparation by deployers contemplating next generation ATMs.”
