Sponsor: Glenbrook's Data in Payments Workshop - July 23, 2014

GP Logo Horizontal 140pxPaymentsNews.com is sponsored this week by Glenbrook's Data in Payments Workshop.

Everyone is saying that "data's where the money is." Big data, small data, transaction data - we all know intuitively that this is important.

But what is payment data, really? How detailed is it? And, most important, who has access to it - and the ability to use it - at what point in the purchase value chain?

Glenbrook's Data in Payments Workshop takes apart these questions, and provides you with a comprehensive understanding of where the value of payments data is, and why it is important.

The next session of this workshop led by Glenbrook's Russ Jones will be held July 23, 2014 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

For details on the agenda and registration, see this workshop page.

Week-long sponsorships of the PaymentsNews.com daily email distribution and RSS feed are available. For more information about how your company can become a sponsor, please contact: publisher@paymentsnews.com.

Join Us for Glenbrook Summer Camp in Half Moon Bay!

GP Logo Horizontal 140pxGlenbrook is opening a special session of our popular Glenbrook Payments Boot Camp this summer on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 6th and 7th. This is the Glenbrook workshop that has welcomed over 6,000 attendees in the past five years.

We'll also be doing a reprise of our very successful workshop on Data in Payments on Thursday, August 8th (half day). In this workshop, we take a close look at what payments data exists, how it is transported and used – and what might happen in the future.

Morning Pier - Princeton Harbor - 2012Both sessions will be led by Glenbrook's Carol Coye Benson, Russ Jones, and Scott Loftesness. The workshops will be held in beautiful Half Moon Bay, California - right on the Pacific Ocean, but only 21 miles from San Francisco airport! Discounts are available for multiple attendees and some Glenbrook clients. Register now to reserve your seat - and let us know if you have any questions.

We're looking forward to seeing you later this summer in Half Moon Bay for one of these two Summer Camp sessions.
