Global feedback on a new architecture - Eric de Putter
Payment Redesign’s study into practical aspects of moving to the cloud was well-received. There are good alternatives for a modern architecture that removes some of the challenges of the past years such as the XP and 7 migration. 11 deployers in 30+ countries accounting for more than 260 000 highlighted benefits for change management and security and highlighted the need for standardisation. Obviously, the industry needs to co-operate and ensure that the relevant APIs emerge.
Industry RFI next generation ATM architecture - Eric de Putter
As this presentation demonstrated, co-operation had already started; within the ATMIA a dedicated committee was set up to request more information from vendors on their next generation ATM architecture. This committee focused on the problem statements and identified inter-operability, creating an app model for ATMs, operating system, monitoring and management, standards and security as the hot topics where improvements are required. As the only non-deployer, Eric presented the status, the RFI has been sent to 60 suppliers with a deadline for late March.
Experiencing the future - Peter Kulik head of digital ATM, Citi
During an interview, Citi’s Peter Kulik shared Citi’s experience with thin client ATMs. Citi’s vision is that the self-service user experience should be the same globally; whether a cardholder takes out cash from a Citi ATM in Orlando or one in Europe or the Middle East, they should see the same transaction set and the same screens. In today’s thick-client ATMs, the software stack on ATMs would be prohibitively complex to accomplish this vision. A thin client ATM solution would result in a substantial reduction in complexity and operational overhead to deliver this global user experience and manage Citi’s ATM network.
Global feedback demonstrates that it is time to re-think the current ATM architecture based on cloud and app thinking.

We are executing proof of concepts with a thin client architecture and expect benefits such as rapid deployment of new ATM software features.
