Global ATM software company KAL is delighted to announce the
availability of new versions of its industry-leading ATM software with
Cloud support. The new software allows backwards compatibility as well
as Cloud support so that KAL’s customers can run the software in a
private Cloud within the bank or even on public Cloud infrastructure
such as Microsoft Azure if they wish to do so.
As the business of retail banking is being transformed, KAL ATM software
is rapidly innovating to meet today’s challenges and be prepared for the
next wave of technology. The current generation of ATM software is
designed to run within the ATM much like running Microsoft Office on a
Windows-based PC. As the software industry has evolved to include more
Cloud-based offerings, banks are looking to leverage the advancements
made to support those software models and build their next generation of
ATM networks using new architectural concepts.
But moving to new architectures does not have to mean the loss of past
gains. KAL software remains standards-based and continues to support
open standards such as XFS and nexo as it moves to the Cloud. Not only
that, KAL supports mixed architectures where some ATMs (eg off-premise
ATMs on slow connections) can continue to use an IoT Edge architecture
while branch-based ATMs can use a full Cloud implementation. All of this
can be achieved along with KAL’s industry-leading ATM management and
monitoring with KTC.
KAL’s Cloud architecture was first used by a major German bank in live
production in 2016 and rollout has continued since then. Indeed, KAL
also demonstrated with this project an additional feature of Kalignite
Cloud – the ability to run on non-Windows ATMs. The hardware in this
case was a mixture of Linux machines and firmware-based machines with no
OS at all.
By using the best technology today and in the future, banks can ensure
that their networks are highly efficient, always available and operate
at the lowest cost. It is critical that banks of all sizes plan for
their next generation ATM network incorporating the best ideas and
technologies and KAL can help them achieve their goals.
