Ixaris Technologies (IxTech) was launched in 2016 as a distinct spin-off from Ixaris Systems, which was founded in 2003. Ixaris Technologies has 120 employees based in Malta and the UK working on payments middleware and B2B payment applications. IxTech delivers payment technology as well as turnkey payment solutions to a number of financial institutions and multinational corporations.
In 2015, Ixaris formed the Open Payments Ecosystem project (OPE) to deliver a public cloud-based platform enabling developers to create and operate truly open and compliant payment applications supported by an ecosystem of service providers including card issuers, acquirers, and bank-based payment providers. The OPE is part-funded by a grant from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
2017 – The Year of Open Payments: Exploiting Disruption in the Payments Industry with the Open Payments Cloud
Much focus has been on open payments with regulators mandating that banks must open up their services to third parties. But how do they do that safely? Deploying payment applications on publicly available payment services is a slow and expensive journey.
The Open Payments Cloud (OPC) offers a publicly available, integrated development environment which provides re-usable payment components and ready-made payment models that are pre-approved from a compliance perspective. Powerful applications – such as solutions for payroll payments, purchasing solutions for business, cross-border supplier payments, incentive payments and many others – can be developed, tested and deployed in a streamlined fashion.
In this session, we will demo the Open Payments Cloud development and execution environments, showing how simple it is to build and deploy payments applications.
What You’ll Learn
- How developers can use the OPC to “build, deploy and operate” open payments applications simply and effectively.
- The incredible size of the business opportunity for payments applications and solutions for corporations and SMEs.
- For the first time, a payments model-driven engineering principle delivers powerful access to diverse payment instruments while guaranteeing data security and regulatory and card scheme compliance.
