Max Chuard, Chief Executive Officer, Temenos, stated: “Our research shows that 76% of banks simply cannot cover their cost of capital. Banks are still burdened by legacy systems, which make it very risky, costly, and slow to provide a differentiating and personalized, omnichannel customer experience. Doing nothing is no longer an option in this competitive environment. Banks need a new approach to run their business.
Mr. Chuard also added: “Our industry-leading platform enables banks to open up to Fintech and partners, rapidly digitalize their processes, and deliver hyper-personalized experiences. We are giving banks the business agility and speed to improve their operations, lower their costs up to 75% and build sustainable businesses.”
Jerry Silva, Vice President, IDC Financial Insights stated: “Organizational size, location, and lack of technical skills are no longer significant challenges to transformation in banking, all banks have a choice on how to consume and deliver banking services and capabilities. Even sophisticated tier 1 and 2 banks are incorporating pre-integrated banking services to modernize their legacy banking systems, component by component. Temenos offers such a composable banking services architecture aligned to a common standard, providing functionally rich banking capabilities.”

With the Temenos Banking Cloud, banks can access the pre-composed banking services, the underlying packaged Temenos Banking Capabilities, or a full out-of-the-box national model bank, without painful integration efforts.
Temenos’ new composable banking services are gaining traction with Banking-as-a-Service providers, such as Green Dot, Mbanq, and Vodeno. These BaaS players are looking to extend their banking services to banks and businesses moving towards embedded finance to offer banking products to customers outside their own ecosystem – such as letting people pay for goods on Amazon using the bank’s rewards points.
