This IDC Financial Insights study presents the top 10 predictions — in no particular order — for payment leaders to consider as they think through their upcoming plans. A common set of key drivers are included so that technology leaders can look at the broader conditions beyond the predictions.
According to James Wester, research director, Worldwide Payment Strategies, "Payments continues to be roiled by immense changes, but the key components of the business of moving money remain the same: give businesses and consumers convenient, secure access to their money when they need it. Financial institutions must provide these core services even as competition, technology, and regulation make delivering those core components profitably even more difficult."
