Tokenization can add significant value to your business, OR it can disintermediate you from your customers. Which will it be? This 5 day deep dive into tokenization provides:

  • a business oriented introduction to tokenization
  • a monetization road map for new products and service offerings

Why a course on Payments Tokenization, and why now?

The product and service plans of merchants, corporates, issuers and processors depend on those organizations’ understanding of how payments tokenization works and how to manage the positive and negative impacts of tokenization on their businesses.

Retail Payments Tokenization has been available for some time. However, the current tokenization offerings and technologies are only the first generation of a very powerful payments management capability. 

Tokenization can add significant value to your business
Properly implemented, tokenization can enable a much closer and more focused relationship between merchants, corporates, processors, issuers and their clients. 

Or, Tokenization can disintermediate you from your customers
Conversely, failure to properly manage payments tokenization services by third parties is an existential threat to your organization’s control over key customer data.

This 5-day deep dive2 provides both a business planning and product strategy focus on payments tokenization, designed to support decision making by merchants, corporates, issuers and processors on two key questions:

  • Does payments tokenization warrant serious consideration by the organization?
  • Should the organization invest significant resources in a tokenization capability?

 Aim of the Course:

This 5 day deep dive into tokenization provides:

  • a business oriented introduction to tokenization
  • a monetization road map for new products and service offerings

The business oriented introduction to tokenization addresses how it works, who the key stakeholders are and the roles they play in controlling the business and data generated by payments tokenization. Key stakeholders include leading vendor and outsource solutions, with a focus on the card scheme offerings. Of particular importance is the generation and control of the additional business data generated by tokenization (hint: there are options for businesses to take further control of their payments through appropriately structured tokenization services).

The road map for monetization of payments tokenization into new products and service offerings by merchants, processors, corporates and issuers focuses on how tokenization works in terms of data models, processes and operating environments, and therefore how stakeholders can use payments tokenization to increase their value propositions (hint: the stakes are high, with significant new payments product wins and losses for stakeholders in the payments ecosystem).

By the end of this comprehensive training program, delegates will be able to undertake in-depth analyses of tokenization in the context of their organization, enabling them to make informed decisions on the adoption and use (or not) of payments tokenization in their payment environment.
