re: Collaborate or Lose Out: Working Together to Win the Mobile Payments Race
There is a lot on the technological, systems and leadership fronts that needs to be well thought through before ramping up on the agile approach in mobile payments.

There is a need for alignments of the information received from all channels. The web as well as the mobile channels should be seamlessly integrated and the information that is available in the back-office systems needs to be consistent across the board.

With the cloud service business environments transformation happening across the enterprise, in addition to security enhancements, and virtualization technologies there is a need to architect long-term solutions that can both leverage the existing infrastructure and scale it up for adaptation.

The shift in the mindset for both the leaders and the team members are required. The leaders are expected to make prompt decisions during every sprint and the team members are expected to consistently perform and adapt in an agile manner.

The pace of the work is truly inspiring for all to see and the results are sure wins for the enterprise.
