Research and Markets: Credit Card EMV Issuance and POS Reterminalization in the United States - Preparing for 2015: The Year of the Liability Shift

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/5665mx/preparing_for) has announced the addition of the "Preparing for 2015: The Year of the Liability Shift" report to their offering.

Credit card issuers are gearing up for a fourth quarter that will likely mark the kickoff of widespread EMV issuance. Card manufacturers are adding capacity to meet demand, and all sources indicate that the EMV train is finally leaving the station.

The data breaches that occurred during the 2013 holiday season set the context for 2014 product strategy in many areas of the payments industry. However, no decisions have been affected more than those relating to EMV. Industry participants have spent 2014 defining, and in some cases implementing, their migration strategies. A completely operational EMV environment is likely several years away, but progress is being made.

The report projects that 58% of credit cards and 26% of point-of-sale (POS) terminals will be EMV-compliant by the end of 2015.

The research note, Preparing for 2015: The Year of the Liability Shift, explains the author's outlook for credit card EMV issuance and POS reterminalization in the United States. It also discusses several EMV-related issues such as chip and PIN, contactless and private-label issuance, as well as the potential impact of card network liability shifts.

Issuers and merchants both appear to be taking EMV migration in stride, which is to say that they are incorporating it into routine card and terminal refresh cycles, comments Michael Misasi, Senior Analyst and the primary author of the research note. Looming regulatory issues and rumors that liability shifts would be extended have prevented merchants from getting the head start necessary to match financial institutions' EMV reissuance. Both groups will be ramping up their EMV efforts around the same time.

Factors considered as influencing EMV credit card issuance include:

  • Issuers' willingness to stray from typical credit card refresh cycles
  • Potential EMV card supply constraints
  • Previously announced issuer migration plans
  • Timeline for BIN certification and EMV pilots before general issuance
  • Card network liability shifts
  • Incremental costs associated with PIN and/or contactless support
  • Competitive forces in the industry
  • Increased customer service issues
  • Future regulatory action
  • Past and future data breaches

Factors considered as influencing EMV acceptance include:

  • Merchants' willingness to will stray from typical POS terminal refresh cycles
  • Number of inactive EMV terminals already in the market
  • EMV certification and testing timelines
  • Previously announced merchant migration plans
  • Possible expansion of the addressable market for consumer-facing terminals after EMV migration
  • Card network liability shifts
  • Number of terminals located at merchants that Mercator Advisory Group has identified as being particularly likely for prompt conversions
  • Need for co-brand credit card reissuance
  • Uncertainty around debit EMV issuance and acceptance procedures
  • Competitive forces in the industry
  • Future regulatory action
  • Disruption in checkout process

Highlights of the research note include:

  • Projected EMV credit card issuance and POS reterminalization
  • Projected EMV compliant credit card transaction volume
  • Analysis of recent and forthcoming disruption related to the industry's EMV migration.
  • Discussion of trends related to credit issuance such as chip and PIN, contactless, private label
  • Analysis of how EMV production capacity could impact the reissuance process

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and valu...

This talk centers around how to automate best practices in a multi-/hybrid-cloud world based on our work with customers like GE, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae. Today’s enterprises are reaping the benefits of cloud computing, but also discovering many risks and challenges. In the age of DevOps and the decentralization of IT, it’s easy to over-provision resources, forget that instances are running, or unintentionally expose vulnerabilities.
Everywhere we turn in our industry we can find strong opinions about the direction, type and nature of cloud’s impact on computing and business. Another word that is used in every context in our industry is “hybrid.” In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Alvaro Gonzalez, Director of Technical, Partner and Field Marketing at Peak 10, will use a combination of a few conceptual props and some research recently commissioned by Peak 10 to offer a real-world consideration of how the various categories of...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
