Combining the comprehensive card processing functionality, modular design, and flexibility of the BPC SmartVista software application with the robustness and fault-tolerance of the IBM System i platform, SmartVista i offers continuous availability, high performance, and scalability.

SmartVista i is a result of extensive collaboration between BPC and IBM experts from Russia, the United Kingdom, and the U.S. Built around the growing demands of banks and interbank processors in both mature and emerging markets, SmartVista i represents a reliable and high-performance electronic payment system that takes into account all current payment technologies and ever increasing delivery channels. For this paper, we used high volumes of financial transactions to record SmartVista i performance ratings during benchmark testing at the IBM System i Center in Rochester, Minnesota. The exceptional fault tolerance of the solution was achieved by using Vision Solutions (formerly Lakeview Technologies) MIMIX HA1 for fault tolerance.

SmartVista i is intended for financial organizations of any size that wish to establish a solid foundation for their card business growth. With its ability to add and incorporate new functions and requirements with minimal time and resources, SmartVista i helps bring down total cost of ownership and helps users maintain it at reasonable levels into the future.
