about this event

Innovation can be disruptive, replacing existing markets and industries, but most often innovation is simply incremental. However even incremental innovation can be difficult to keep up with in a world living at cloud speed. As the lifecycle for changes in the payments industry continues to shorten, how are payment companies in Transaction Alley and Silicon Valley companies leveraging each other to improve the payment technologies and platforms used by retailers, consumers and banks?

we will cover the following questions

  • Transaction Alley / Silicon Valley – How are they reshaping each other when it comes to innovation in payments? What are the best practices for APIs and peering between the two?
  • What innovations do you see to help with data sovereignty and regulation for multinational companies dealing with payments data?
  • What areas in payments are or will become commoditized because of innovation? How do companies providing those services remain relevant?
  • Where does “As a Service” model fit in easing the cost of adoption for banks and retailers to new payments innovation? Where does it not fit?
  • In what areas will the payments industry see disruptive changes vs incremental changes in the near future?
  • What potential disruptions keep you up at night?
