TIBCO Launches Solution That Gives Context to Payments

This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateAsia 2013.


Next, TIBCO debuted its solution that helps banks and merchants unlock unstructured and big data:
“In this age of digital privacy there is an increased need to share temporary “in the moment” payment context. Ad-hoc digital encounters are the next forefront of a massive volume of micro transactions. Imagine a customer making a payment at a restaurant once the waiter “flicks over” the menu context to the customer, without the customer ever having to reveal any long-term impacting sensitive financial information. Once the “payment context” is over, no digital “remnants” remain. A total freedom of contextual interactions, not just payments, opens up a variety of digital services avenues for banks, their merchants, and customers. 
The massive volume of data transactions enables new analytical insight to both merchants and the banks, giving banks and merchants new perspectives into consumer behaviour through unstructured and big data.”

Thumbnail image for GMCLogo.jpg

This post is part of our live coverage of FinovateAsia 2013.

Coming to the stage for the first of two separate presentations here at FinovateAsia is GMC Software Technology.

“GMC Software Technology is proposing Inspire Research Portal for Investors. Wealth management groups, investment companies and banks have their own team of market researchers who would study the markets and provide their findings to investors on what they could do to secure or enhance their investments. But the current process is too manual and prone to errors. GMC Software Technology has researched and identified that there is a need to streamline this process, as there is no centralized platform or a total solution which could fulfill all these requirements.”
