As the Middle East becomes more digitally connected, demand for digital services and technologies is also becoming more prominent.
Evolving technology and changing consumer expectations are the two main drivers behind this adoption of digital payments - and they both reinforce one other.
The proliferation of mobile devices, especially smartphones, has profoundly democratized access to payments and financial services without any constraints on location. However, security is still the main concern in the rapidly modernizing payment infrastructures in the Middle East.
Therefore there is a large focus on compliance and automation that can safeguard reputation and reduce time to market in the agile ecosystem of the Middle East.
