PAYMENT DISRUPTION: WHO? HOW? WHY NOW?
The rapid growth of digital technology is disrupting lots of different industries and there’s no better evidence than in the payments industry. For many years the industry moved more slowly, reliant on the decisions of a handful of companies. With the digital revolution on the way, the payments growth has become a truly global phenomenon. Many new players have been entering the industry. Almost every day, new startups (or corporations) try to launch a new solution. In this session, we will have a look at the current payments landscape and see who are the companies trying to disrupt the existing systems.
E-ID & E-GOVERNMENT: THE DRIVERS FOR INNOVATION
Digital interactions lead to increasing the scope and length of e-government strategies using electronic identification as a central pillar. After administration efficiency and cost savings, new objectives aim to strengthen digital trust, integrate appropriate economic services and improve security and immigration policy. In a context where international identity scheme interoperability and consistency are also pursued in various world regions, the program looks into many issues including lessons learnt with «digital by default» in administration policies, implementation of international identity schemes, progression with effective trust services, private-public interoperability, services personalization with citizen cards and mobile identity; e-gov practices from social inclusion or share economy transparency to improved control in migration flow management.
REGULATORY CHANGES ARE SHAPING A NEW MARKET
The succession of European directives, the decisions by competition authorities and central governments are making the payment landscape more homogeneous and more competitive. Amongst the major effects, let’s mention the creation of the Payment and Electronic Money Institutions, the decline of cards’ interchange fees, the advent of European SDD and SCT instruments, the willingness to split scheme and processing, the access to bank accounts allowed to third parties and the prospects of «instant payments» ...The range of possibilities is becoming more and more limitless.
FROM IOT TO CONNECTED COMMERCE

When payment capabilities are added to connected objects, this will be the advent of connected commerce powered by IoT. This track will try to answer the following questions: What is the current status of IoT and payments? How can payment develop further the IoT eco-system? What are the main opportunities and hurdles for the development of Connected Commerce? What are the innovative solutions in the IoT sector, and specifically in the wearables, connected home and connected cars segments? What are the strategies of the different players?
