Description

Some things work so well together that even suggesting they don't now seems almost ridiculous. But I wonder, who were the pioneers that fought back when questioned about the jelly on the PB? The savory with the sweet. The steak wrapped in cheese . . . those crazy hipsters spreading avocado on toast. Yet, now these are the norm, and so it's time to embrace yet another: Payments and the Cloud. My teams work with some of the biggest payment processors in the world, and for years we saw reluctance, cloud inertia, and concerns over security and compliance. Some of these fears were reasonable at the time, such as concerns over outages and uptime - concerns that are reasonable when stepping into any commercial outsource-type of relationship.
