For more than 25 years, FIS has been working with HP to provide solutions to the financial services industry, including an existing relationship in which TouchPoint, FIS' channel solution; Xpressâ¢, FIS' integration solution; and ProfileÂ®, FIS' strategic real-time core banking platform, together with HP's efficient infrastructure technologies and platforms, are jointly marketed worldwide.
As a result of this latest relationship, select FIS payments products and services - including DataNavigatorÂ®, a back-office solution for payment transaction support, and ISTÂ® and Connexâ¢, payment switch solutions for ATM/EFT transactions - will be delivered across the globe through a joint sales and marketing effort from HP and FIS.
IST is now being delivered on HP Integrity servers running HP-UX. Connex is available on the HP NonStop Integrity platform and has been certified on the HP Integrity NonStop BladeSystem. In addition, with assistance from the HP Advanced Technology Center, Connex is currently being rewritten to C++. DataNavigator is available on Integrity servers running HP-UX and plans are underway to certify this solution on the latest version of HP-UX.
"We are pleased to extend our relationship with HP, a global leader in technology infrastructure for the financial services market, to drive our banking solutions across the globe," said Tony Ficarra, executive vice president, FIS.
