The retail industry has become focused on Omni-Channel and within that movement a key foundation to accomplishing it resides in the integration of payments as part of the strategy. Lusis, a payment specialist provides key elements to enable this need. In simple terms the retail industry has to unify their customer experiences across all channels in order to provide a highly personalized experience. A significant key to that accomplishment is an IT architecture that enables these goals.

A retailer's ability to deliver a true Omni-Channel experience is dependent on the evolution of the current operating models. However, what is possible to deliver is dependent on the foundation of their IT environment and what it is capable of.  Old solutions are costly and slow to enhance and adapt. A modern micro-service payment architecture like the Lusis Tango product can keep pace and easily adapt to today's challenges.

The Importance of Failover Testing

How relieved you will feel to know with certainty that your production system will fail over successfully to your backup system. The challenge is that testing failover requires you to perform a real-life failover, at which time both production and backup systems will be down. Sadly, too few companies test their backup procedures and thus risk a catastrophic failover fault. Read one company’s creative approach to its failover testing process and why active/active architectures don’t require failover testing.
