Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gf2vzg/african_payments) has announced the addition of the "African Payments Markets, 2014" report to their offering.
When companies are looking at regions for overseas investment, Africa generally comes in last in terms of overall attractiveness. On the surface, it is easy to understand the payments industry's reluctance to invest heavily in Africa. But Africa is a continent filled with potential for e-payments and within the next three to five years, the global payments industry will increasingly look to Africa as a major source of future sustained e-payment growth.
Africa faces similar challenges to those of other world regions that have many developing economies, like improving financial inclusion and developing a wide network of e-payment acceptance. However, many markets across Africa have already made strides to overcome these hurdles and are enjoying robust growth. How rapidly the remaining markets are able to accomplish similar goals will determine whether the continent becomes a hub of e-payment growth and innovation internationally in the near and intermediate future.
This new report, African Payments Markets, 2014, provides an overview of the African payments landscape, with estimates on account ownership, payment card penetration, branch and ATM use, mobile payment use and the continent's e-commerce potential in the years to come. In addition, the report details recent and proposed payment technology and innovation developments across Africa.
Key Topics Covered:
DDA Ownership Across Africa
Payment Card Penetration Across Africa
National Payment Networks
Electronic Payment Use in Africa
Branch Access in Africa
ATM Access in Africa

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
