Alaric’s Authentic implemented throughout Central America for Grupo Sanborns as core payments and services solution

Global payments and fraud prevention company, Alaric International (www.alaric.com), is proud to announce the successful deployment of its Authentic payment solution at Sanborns, the leading Mexican and Central American retailer.

Authentic handles credit and debit card transactions, loyalty and gift card transactions, enables corresponsal banking transactions at the point-of-sale and permits payment for airline tickets, credit card bills, insurance, utility bills and mobile top ups. As well as handling bricks-and-mortar transactions, Authentic also handles all payments arising from Grupo Sanborns multiple online stores.

Commenting on the deployment of Authentic Alberto Huacuja, Sanborns CIO said, "Being able to offer our customers the convenience of a wide variety of cards and services is an essential ingredient in our success at Sanborns. We are very happy with Authentic, particularly its flexibility which allows us to radically differentiate ourselves from the competition in terms of rapid introduction of new products and services. This is a core, mission critical system for Sanborns and we have been delighted with the high availability offered by the Stratus hardware and Authentic software combination. Another major plus point is that Authentic is designed to be easily customizable by end users such as ourselves which means we can take complete control of the system going forward."

Software development is a moving target. You have to keep your eye on trends in the tech space that haven’t even happened yet just to stay current.

Then Pokémon GO happened. Like AR, the trends listed below have been building steam for some time, but they’ll be taking off in surprising new directions b...
The word—or rather, the contraction—is simple: DevOps. But DevOps, which refers to the increased communication and collaboration between development and IT operations, is an ever-changing, sometimes complicated term. While “dev” and “ops” used to be siloed into separate philosophies, practices, tools, and work flows, they’re merging into one. The result? A more efficient, reliable process and product.

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facing...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

"It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." – W. Edwards Deming. How often do we see this quote used in DevOps blogs without a hint of irony?
