    Oculus rift for the middle seat business traveler

    Monday, June 15, 2015

    Last week, I was stuck in the middle seat in the last row on a flight from London to Boston and as much as I tried sucking up to anyone at the airline who would listen, my attempts failed to move my seat (such is life on a completely booked flight). Nestled between a snorer and perpetual leg shaker in a seat unable to recline, I tried to do some work, but the passenger in front of me was fully reclined, out cold (perhaps too much drink?). But enough about my travel travails. It’s time for another exciting edition of ‘Rantings with Ranta,’ our intrepid digital banking guru who’s also had some unpleasant flight-related experiences.

  • Focus on Immediate Payments

    ISO20022: EBADay focus on Immediate Payments comes up short

    Monday, May 18, 2015

    Rather predictably, this year’s EBADay conference in Amsterdam was dominated by conversation of Immediate Payments. The great and the good from the industry came to discuss how we can all improve our customer relationships by simply implementing a pan-European Immediate Payments scheme.  And the even better news is that if we implement it on ISO 20022, we should be able to bring it to market in ultra-quick time. So in homage to my favourite comedy show right now, that’s all good then.
