Visa Featured on Sun Microsystems Podcast on Financial Payments Innovation


SAN FRANCISCO/SANTA CLARA, Calif.- Visa International was featured on The Payments Podcast,, sponsored by Sun Microsystems. This episode’s podcast discussion focused on how the payments market is evolving and the ways in which payment companies are driving innovation worldwide through their enhanced data, and more efficient and secure infrastructure.

“I was delighted when Visa accepted my invitation to speak about innovation in card companies,” said Peter Scott, director global banking sector, Sun Microsystems. “Visa’s focus on the financial supply chain and cash flow forecasting are at the forefront of innovation in the card space and are an exact fit for the podcast series.”

During the podcast, available for free download at, a Visa executive explains how card payment systems were born out of innovation in the 1960s, and Visa’s role in extending that innovation into the commercial space. The discussion also focused on how future innovation can help address the needs of corporates facing inefficiencies in payments today.

“The payments industry continues to innovate to better help financial institutions enable corporates by providing predictability and visibility into payments across the world,” said Aliza Knox, senior vice president, Visa Commercial, Visa International. “Corporates and banks trust the robust infrastructure of our payment system to send data and payments electronically, which is especially valuable when trying to manage a large number of cross-border transactions.”
