Ingenico turns to MapR for payments data consolidation
MapR Technologies, a data platform for artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics, has been selected by Ingenico to serve as the foundational data layer for its payment processing systems.
These systems handle 5.1 billion transactions, across over 300 payment types within 170 countries.
Ingenico selected MapR as part of an ongoing strategy to “consolidate its multiple data silos within a unified platform to simplify and create better data synergies for its critical real-time workflows”.
This need to consolidate data systems comes from Ingenico’s recent acquisitions: TechProcess, Bambora, Paymark, Airlink, and IECISA.
Frédéric Delhalle, retail director of strategy and architecture for Ingenico, says the firm is “implementing a future-proof, flexible, and robust data platform delivering not just storage capacity, but also the means to leverage all the data generated by Ingenico worldwide – in real time”.
MapR Data Platform’s provides a single point of control for data, which Ingenico hopes it will help with its regulatory oversight.
