Automated Teller Machines about to Change
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 6:40 AM

NCR rolled out new software that will transform ATMs to use the cloud with Android and a thin-client model of computing. The result will be a big boost in security as well as dramatically lower costs.

Most of the world’s 2.2 million ATMs are essentially run by built-in PCs, and the vast majority of them (as much as 75 percent) run Windows XP, NCR says. Security is an issue and banks typically must still administer updates manually to each ATM in their network.

NCR’s new enterprise software platform (named Kalpana) moves ATM software and operations to the cloud so that the machines run remotely, including all software updates.

The technology reduces the cost of running an ATM network by up to 40 percent NCR estimates, as well as speeding up deployment of new services. The result is banks can bring new ATM services to market twice as fast as before.
