OmniPay was founded in Dublin, Ireland, in 2000 and currently employs 165 people. Its business has grown significantly in recent years.

The best-performing markets for OmniPay are Europe, North America and Asia Pacific, with the investment seeing further development of OmniPay’s services to Asia Pacific, Latin America, Africa and India. As a result a wide range of highly-skilled technology, customer service and professional services roles are being created, including project managers, business analysts, systems developers and quality assurance specialists.

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, said: “International financial services is a sector targeted under the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs, and we believe that with the correct supports we can drive the creation of 10,000 additional jobs by 2016. Today’s announcement that OmniPay, an innovative company in this sector, is creating an additional 30 jobs in Ireland adds to a growing list of positive financial services announcements in recent months. I am determined to ensure that, by putting in place the right supports and through an intensive programme of trade and investment missions, we can build on this and create the jobs we need”.

Hubert O’Donoghue, CEO and co-founder of OmniPay, commented: “This announcement is not only great news for OmniPay, but also for the burgeoning payments industry in Ireland. It’s exciting that we are adding more high quality roles into our business and the local industry. OmniPay delivers one of the world’s largest single global payments infrastructure, managing more than a billion payments annually. Each new hire will be joining a business that is perfectly positioned for sustained international growth.”

Barry O’Leary, CEO, Industrial Development Agency Ireland, added: “Ireland is rapidly becoming one of the world’s leading locations for companies in the payment’s industry. Companies in the payments industry locate here to gain access to our technological infrastructure as well as our talented graduates. The growing number of payment’s companies locating in Ireland comes as a result of the IDA’s strategy to focus on targeting particular industries and creating “clusters”.

In April 2012 First Data, a global leader in electronic commerce and payment processing, announced it had acquired the remaining equity stake in OmniPay, from FEXCO, bringing its ownership to 100 percent. First Data has had an equity investment in OmniPay since 2002 and took a majority equity interest in the company in August 2006.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
