The Harvey Nash CIO Practice hosts successful Round Table lunch.
Technology fads may come and go rapidly over the next few years and mobile payments may never be more than an additional convenience, but what seems certain is that the traditional boundaries that exist in the banking and payments world are fading away.
Volume will be the key to success or failure to competing organisations and technologies, as it always has been. Does anyone remember the ‘laser disk’? Momentum in the consumer world is often built on good marketing as well as good technology. Is the brand mightier than the bank now that they are finding out how much harder it is to run payments than purchases or searches. Will the big players really get in on the action? Fraud has yet to become a significant problem but that is not surprising given that mobile payments, as we define them, are still practically non-existent.
Are we trying to sell something that the consumer is just not that excited or indeed interested in or are we at the cutting edge of a transaction revolution?
Only time will tell, but as mobile technologies continue to disrupt our behaviours, I think we will see a continuing erosion of the traditional roles played by our corporates.
