    - Customer expectations with regard to experience require smarter processes both at the point of engagement and at the back-end decision systems that power the journeys
    - Wide product breadth forces banks to take individual approaches to design, recommendation and pricing

  • How the Internet of Things is Reshaping Payments
    How the Internet of Things is Reshaping Payments Zilvinas Bareisis, ‎Senior Analyst, Celent Recorded: May 17 2018 46 mins
    The Internet of Things (IoT) will have a significant impact on many industries from manufacturing to health and insurance. At first glance, IoT impact on banking is less obvious. And yet, we assert that IoT also matters for banking, and especially for the payments industry.
    As devices and entire platforms (e.g., cars) connect to the Internet, they become conduits for commerce transactions and require payments capability. IoT will change how commerce and transactions are conducted, and in turn, will require changes in payments.
    This webinar discusses the opportunities and challenges the IoT evolution present to the payments industry, and offers examples how the payments industry is preparing to capture the IoT opportunity.
