“Cada dispositivo se está transformando en un dispositivo de compras”, manifestó Ed McLaughlin, director de pagos emergentes de MasterCard. “MasterPass reúne todas las formas de pago, desde tarjetas de plástico tradicionales hasta billeteras digitales, y brinda a los consumidores la capacidad de efectuar pagos donde sea que estén y de manera sencilla”.

MasterPass es la evolución de los servicios PayPass Wallet Services, que se anunciaron en la primavera de 2012 y han estado en prueba de producción con comerciantes y usuarios seleccionados. Los clientes en todo el mundo ahora podrán inscribirse para utilizar el servicio a través de sus bancos preferidos en Australia y Canadá a fines de marzo, y con posterioridad en los Estados Unidos y el Reino Unido, en la primavera y el verano respectivamente. Del mismo modo, la disponibilidad de MasterPass en 2013 se expandirá a otros mercados en todo el mundo, entre ellos, Bélgica, Brasil, China, Francia, Italia, Países Bajos, Singapur, España y Suecia.

El paquete de servicios de MasterPass abarca:

  • Servicios de finalización de compra (checkout) MasterPass: para brindar a los comerciantes una forma consistente de aceptar pagos electrónicos independientemente del lugar donde se encuentre el consumidor. En diferentes sitios ya sea dentro de la tienda, en la caja registradora o en el pasillo, MasterPass soportará el uso de NFC, códigos QR, tags y dispositivos móviles empleados en los puntos de venta. Respecto de las compras en línea, MasterPass brinda a los clientes un proceso de finalización de compra simple al eliminar la necesidad de ingresar información detallada del envío y la tarjeta con cada compra.
  • Billeteras conectadas por MasterPass: para permitir a los bancos, comerciantes y socios ofrecer sus propias billeteras. Los consumidores pueden almacenar la información de tarjetas, agendas y más de manera segura en una nube hospedada por una entidad confiable. Esta billetera es abierta, lo que significa que además de las tarjetas MasterCard, los consumidores pueden utilizar tarjetas de crédito, débito y prepago de otras marcas.
  • Servicios de valor agregado MasterPass: para enriquecer la experiencia de compra antes, durante y después de finalizar la misma. Estos incluirán más información como saldos de cuenta y alertas en tiempo real, programas de fidelización, así como ofertas y experiencias que no tienen precio.

“El producto de pago de última generación más exitoso será resultado de una amplia gama de partes interesadas en su diseño y les permitirá impactar en la experiencia del usuario de acuerdo con sus necesidades comerciales y la dinámica de la industria aún en evolución. MasterPass refleja esta sensibilidad moderna de diseño funcional y aprovecha una fuerza que únicamente una red mundial puede ofrecer”, señaló Patricia Hewitt, directora del servicio de asesoramiento de débito de Mercator Advisory Group.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...

Most are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) and microservices technologies like Docker. A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Opening Keynote at 16th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, d...
