By Agile Payments News on Apr 30, 2015 8:33:20 AM

Fear and ignorance are a dangerous combination. Dave Lewis recalls his days working for companies in the IT industry, along with his exploits of being a vendor. During the entire period, he kept a journal of projects he worked on and IT challenges he overcame.

Why We're So Excited About FinTech

By Agile Payments News on Apr 28, 2015 5:58:54 PM

Banks are not glamourous — FinTech is.
It’s fancy to get excited over FinTech these days. But why exactly should we?

Some background information for novice readers: FinTech means financial technology. It encompasses a new wave of companies changing the way people pay and send money, but also borrow, lend, invest. The most disrupted sectors — or at least the ones that we hear the most about — are payments and money transfer, represented by companies you’ve certainly heard of (TransferWise for money transfer, Square for mobile payments…), crowdfunding (Kickstarter, Crowdcube, Smart Angels…), and peer-to-peer lending (LendingClub, Zopa, Prêt d’Union…). So where’s all that happening? Well, London is clearly the leading hub, followed by New York, and other cities fighting to get to the top: Paris, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tel Aviv… Just to give you an idea, FinTech investments reached $2.97 billion in 2013 and is expected to climb up to $8 billion in 2018, so there’s room for new players!

By Agile Payments News on Apr 28, 2015 8:13:39 AM

However, findings revealed by a new survey on security trends, indicate that the culprit might just be human error and the failure of IT professionals to follow polices and procedures.

Understanding the Changes Needed for Performance Management

By Agile Payments News on Apr 27, 2015 10:05:02 AM

Mathew French weighs in on how the need for performance management is changing the face of how Human Resources departments must operate. In reality, there has to be a change. For many managers, the perception of HR is that it operates largely as an administration function. It handles payroll, benefits, processing employees in and out of the company etc. In so many words, HR is a necessary evil. For employees, the perception of HR is that, either direct or vicariously, once HR is gets involved with any issue the solution will not be in favor of the employee.
