The payments landscape is rapidly evolving in many areas with new ways for consumers, retailers, banks and corporations to move money. Although the traditional debit/credit, ACH, and wire transfer rails all remain in place, the ecosystem that uses them has vastly expanded due to open API’s and mobility. Network architects are tasked with addressing the complexity of new relationships that may come from new products, new partners, acquisitions, or global expansion. They are expected to do this not only keeping the network secure and robust but also do it as quickly and inexpensively as possible. It is an exciting time in the industry, but current architectures weren’t necessarily built to efficiently scale for any device, anywhere, to anyone on any payment rail.
Our lunch will share insights and lessons learned about overcoming the challenges with realizing the ANY-TO-ANY Payments vision.
ANY-TO-ANY Payments – Architecting for Any Device, Anywhere, Anyone, Any Rail – Roundtable Lunch is invitation-only and limited to 50 senior business and technology leaders from the payments industry. Roundtable members will benefit from a highly interactive format that allows every leader to exchange knowledge, perspectives, and experiences on best practices while networking over a two hour lunch.
We will cover the following questions:

  • What are the inefficiencies or challenges in your company’s payment network architecture you are trying to overcome?
  • What network strategies are you using to create agility for today’s changing environments – new geographies, new partners, new acquisitions?
  • Many startups begin as software only companies in the cloud. What are the best practices you are seeing for connecting to/from cloud providers?
  • What is your edge strategy for systems of engagement vs systems of record?
  • What is your strategy for mobile and Internet traffic from both security and end user experience?
