GENEVA, Switzerland – June 4, 2020 – Temenos (SIX: TEMN), the banking software company, has been listed as the industry’s only ‘Global Power Seller’ in Forrester’s prestigious Global Banking Platform Deals Survey 2020 with a 30% increase in new named deals. Temenos landed more new global banking deals than any other provider in 2019, as stated in the Forrester report. Temenos was also named ‘Top Global Player’ in the survey, based on combined deals, which represent a vendor’s ability to enhance its market position and keep creating value for its existing customers.
Forrester reconfirmed Temenos’ status as a ‘Top Global Player’ for the 8th consecutive year. This ranking recognizes platforms with over 150 combined deals (new names and extended deals with existing customers) in more than five regions. With 177 deals signed with new and existing customers, Temenos maintained its position at the forefront of the table. Temenos also retains its position as a Global Power Seller’, the highest status in the vendor pyramid for new deals. With 78 new business deals in 2019, this marks the 14th consecutive year that Temenos has received this recognition.
Max Chuard, Chief Executive Officer, Temenos, said:
“It’s a great honour to be recognized again as a ‘Global Power Seller’ and ‘Top Global Player’ in the Forrester’s Global Banking Platform Deals Survey. The Temenos deal figures are higher than the total of new named signings of the next two vendors combined. We believe that these results are a validation of our relentless investment in innovation, product strength, and customer successes. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need for digital banking and cloud/SaaS models. For banks to succeed in the ‘new normal’ we firmly believe that they must embark on an end- to- end digital transformation. Only Temenos can offer the winning combination for the most advanced AI and cloud technology and richest banking functionality which helps banks deliver outstanding value to their customers and support them in building sustainable business growth in the future.”
Jost Hoppermann, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester, wrote in the report:
“It was true before the COVID-19 outbreak, and it will again move center stage in the days after: the transformation imperative in banking needs imminent execution. A flood of business and regulatory requirements has continued to drive change in the banking industry that in turn changes its face rapidly, albeit still not quickly enough, as there is a growing gap between leaders and laggards. These laggards need to complete digital transformation — in fact, they need to finalize it within the next five to six years at the very latest to avoid dying an analog-business death.”
