Mi-Pay’s security led partnership with NIU Solutions delivers IBM global award


One of the highlights of the year for NIU Solutions was their nomination as a finalist for the IBM Beacon Award for ‘Outstanding Solution Hosted on IBM Cloud’. This is an award that exhibits their successful IBM Cloud infrastructure as a service capability.

This annual event is held to recognize IBM Business Partners who have delivered outstanding solutions which drive innovation and support their clients’ operations. NIU Solutions was among the shortlisted companies in recognition of its PCI-compliant hybrid cloud solution incorporating IBM Soft layer, which is based on their innovative pod architecture design.

It was the IBM Soft layer that they used to deliver a highly resilient solution for Mi-Pay (the digital e-commerce payments and security services specialist) which secured them this achievement. A hybrid solution with comprehensive data replication between UK and Asia, the solution supports Mi-Pay’s international growth plans by providing robust data governance and high levels of PCI compliance an essential for supporting mobile payments in highly regulated environments.

Allen Atwell, Chief Technology Officer Of Mi-Pay said: “Hybrid cloud allowed us to do a lot more with the same budget and actually I was able to reduce the operational cost by offloading that to the manage service providers which gives us increased ability to address new research and development. 

“Many of our customers are large telecom operators who insist on having a full disaster recovery scenario and working with the new solutions. As a service provider, using the Hybrid cloud, we are now able to provide a Hot DR or full disaster recovery scenario both in Europe and Asia at the same time as providing a more robust and secure infrastructure.”

 “Mi-Pay enables our clients to transform their customers’ purchasing journey moving them from legacy call-centre & paper based customer relationship channels to digital, using our knowledge, experience and proven solutions to improve the overall customer buying experience by delivering more choice and flexibility in a simple and secure way. “
