This IDC study presents the top 10 predictions for the worldwide payment strategies practice. Each prediction is shaped by a common set of key drivers that provides a planning tool for technology leaders and their line-of-business counterparts to use in their IT strategic planning efforts.
According to James Wester, research director for Worldwide Payment Strategies and the lead author of the study, "The rapid pace of change in the payment space has been compounded by the entrance of upstarts and nonbank competitors, regulatory pressure, security concerns, and myriad other issues. For business leaders in the payment space, we're providing a look at not only where the industry will be moving but why. The intent is to provide some guidance on making strategic decisions."
