First Data and Pivotal announced that they will bring First Data eCommerce services to Spring developers. This new collaboration is designed to make it simple and safe for developers seeking to add payment services to their applications.
Together, the companies will provide Spring developers with easy access to payment services, an abstraction layer for portability as part of Pivotal’s Cloud Native platform, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and a development toolbox. First Data will also become a Pivotal customer using Pivotal Cloud Foundry to improve developer productivity and rapidly bring new products and services to market.
“At First Data, we are committed to working with the developer community to unlock the next big breakthrough in fintech,” said Guy Chiarello, President, First Data. “We are thrilled to join with Pivotal, a major force in the developer ecosystem, as we continue to attract developer talent and deliver ongoing innovation in payments.”
“Over the last year, Spring Boot reached over 1.6 million downloads per month, altering the industry’s pre-cloud monolithic legacy as it continues to grow,” said James Watters, general manager and vice president, Cloud Platform Group, Pivotal. “Through our work with market leader First Data, we expect to provide Spring and Cloud Foundry developers with the ability to manage all of their payments from one place, simplifying their day-to-day operations and making it easy to deliver seamless payment services to their customers.”
As part of the collaboration, Pivotal plans to prioritize the integration of a First Data native service into Pivotal Cloud Foundry so that Pivotal customers can easily leverage First Data payment services with no additional development required. First Data’s dynamic Payeezy eCommerce solution will help customers deliver a seamless customer experience by offering more mobile payment options, impressive security features, and easier integration.
