Building Global Payments’ cloud based issuer processing platform on AWS

By developing its cloud based issuer processing platform on AWS, Global Payments will provide financial institutions with the ability to seamlessly operate the entire lifecycle of card issuance and management.

In addition the company is leveraging the scalability of AWS’s global infrastructure to support the rapid adoption of Global Payments’ issuer processing platform which handles 27bn transactions annually. Global Payments will rely on AWS as a preferred cloud provider for its issuer processing platform and will use a range of AWS services including: storage, compute, database, security, analytics and machine learning. The services will help Global Payments fulfill its compliance requirements, enable new cloud-based services, and enhance its customer experiences for its clients and their cardholders. 

In addition the two companies will work together to explore additional opportunities for collaboration and innovation for payment products and services across its entire operations.

By strategically partnering with AWS, we can capitalize on the fintech and open banking movement, further expand our role in technology innovation, leapfrog existing distribution models and solidify our position as a leading provider of technology solutions for financial institutions, new market entrants, and retailers across the globe.”

“Global Payments is a leader in the payments technology industry, and working together, we will provide solutions to organizations—from traditional financial institutions to emerging payment players—to simplify commerce, so they can focus on innovation and growth,” added Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS.
