The ATM industry is rapidly moving from Windows XP to Windows 7 and the transition has been challenging and expensive for ATM owners. The industry is keenly aware that it must start planning now for the next upgrade cycle to avoid the facing the same turmoil experienced in moving away from Windows XP.
That was the view outlined recently by KAL CEO Aravinda Korala in the ATMIA webinar ‘The Roadmap to Windows 10 Operating Systems for ATMs’.
Banks must ensure the hardware they buy today will be suitable for whatever comes in the year 2020. However, the ATM manufacturers are yet to publish a roadmap beyond Windows 7, or their plans to support Windows 8 or 8.1.
With the ATMIA preparing to recommend Windows 10, Mr Korala was joined by Microsoft’s Pat Telford to outline the key dates and details banks need to consider as they seek to manage migration costs.
