On February 4th, 2016, VISA has announced the launch of Visa Developer, a milestone that transforms the world’s largest retail payments network to an open platform that will drive innovation in payments and commerce.

The new Visa Developer platform is designed to help financial institutions, merchants, and technology companies meet the demands of consumers and merchants, who increasingly rely on connected devices to shop, pay and get paid.

Over the past few months leading financial institutions, technology companies, and start-ups have participated in beta trials of the new Visa Developer platform and many have already created innovative prototype applications using Visa technology.

At the Mobile World Congress 2016, the CEO of Vipera Marco Casartelli has been among the industry experts invited by VISA to partecipate into a panel to discuss the latest consumer trends in payments and how Visa Developer can help banks in their transformation to digital innovation.
