Real-time payments are at the forefront in many countries including most recently in the United State. Real-time, all the time is great for customers but it is pushing the infrastructures of banks and corporations to new limits. The 24x7x365, real-time transactions and expanded remittance information are re-shaping the traditional landscape of commerce flows. Banks and corporations can use this to offer innovative services, but they must address the impact on their infrastructures. This session will address current status of real-time payments around the globe and will examine how real-time payments can act as a catalyst for implementing a real-time payments foundation. We will emphasize the specific areas of impact for real-time processing and highlight where real-time processing creates new opportunities.
