Temenos Showcases Real-World Fintech

The 19th annual Temenos Community Forum in Lisbon looks beyond the hype to showcase where fintech is delivering real change in a digital age


Lisbon, Portugal – 26th April 2017 – Temenos (SIX: TEMN), the software specialist for banking and finance, today hosts over 1,200 delegates at its 19th annual Temenos Community Forum in Lisbon.

The theme of the conference, "Real-World Fintech", addresses the truth beyond the fintech hype, with real-world examples of the exciting innovation coming out of banks and fintech companies. The conferences also takes a closer look at some emerging technologies – such as Artificial intelligence and blockchain – highlighting real-world use cases.

Across a series of 12 mainstage presentations and 32 breakouts, 22 customer speakers and 24 industry experts will present alongside Temenos thought leaders, and our platinum sponsor, Accenture, to share experience and shed light on what it takes to be the world's most successful banks. The program includes interviews with customers such as Nordea Bank, Credit Suisse, EFG Bank and First Abu Dhabi Bank about how technology helps them to build and sustain leadership positions.

Throughout the two-day event, 23 Temenos partner sponsors and exhibitors will further bring to life and quantify the areas where innovation and collaboration - in areas such as cloud, data, and payments - can help banks stay ahead. Delegates will also have the opportunity to learn more about open banking, through and with access to the 18 solution providers exhibiting in the Temenos MarketPlace zone.

TCF will also play host to what is now a regular feature of TCF, the global final of the Innovation Jam. The winners of the regional competitions in Abu Dhabi, Miami, London Geneva and Singapore will compete in Lisbon for the crown of global champion, a prize which will be decided by TCF attendees.

David Arnott, Temenos CEO commented:

"The pace of technology and regulatory change is accelerating in the digital age. This opens up new competitive threats for banks as well giving them the opportunity to embrace new, collaborative models that will deliver better customer outcomes. Our goal at this year's conference is to challenge some conventional thinking around digital banking and make concrete what banks should do to take advantage of the opening banking opportunity. In particular, we believe that for banks to offer rich, engaging, personalized experiences mobile first that are critical for survival over the next 10 years, they will need to undertake full front to back renovation of systems -new channels alone will not be able to offer a single view of the customer and cope with the huge demands of real time processing and high volume interactions. To address the perceived challenges around system replacement, we will be highlighting several customer cases of how progressive renovation de-risks projects and speeds up time to value."
