SPA-24 – 5-Day Payments Tokenization Deep-Dive – New York – May 27-31, 2024

A Deep Dive into Payments Tokenization

Leveraging, Productizing and Monetizing Tokens

5-Day Payments Tokenization Deep-Dive

SPA-24 – A 5-Day Payment Tokenization Deep Dive – Why a course on Payments Tokenization.

The product and service plans of merchants, corporates, issuers and processors depend on those organizations’ understanding of how payments tokenization really 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 and issuers and their clients. 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 dive 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 this Course

This 5 day deep dive first provides a business oriented introduction to the technology of, how it works, who the key stakeholders are and the roles they play in controlling the business and the data generated by payments tokenization . These 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 deep dive then provides a road map for the monetization of payments tokenization into new products and service offerings by merchants, processors, corporates and issuers . The focus is on how tokenization really 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).
