En el día de hoy en el Mobile World Congress, MasterCard presentó MasterPass™ : el futuro de los pagos digitales. MasterPass es un servicio digital que permite a los consumidores utilizar cualquier tarjeta de pago o dispositivo habilitado para mejorar el proceso de compra tan solo con hacer un clic, o presionar una tecla ya sea en línea, en la tienda o en cualquier lugar.

“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.

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...

The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
