The Temenos Banking Cloud is live. The new product aims to develop the next generation in banking services and accelerate SaaS and AI adoption by banks and fintechs.
At the same time, it offers instant access to Sandbox, Banking Services, and Temenos Marketplace. All services will be accessed through a self-service portal. This is instantly available at the click of a button with a “pay as you go” model.
As a result, Temenos says that banks now have the power to self-provision always-on banking services. Moreover, they can scale instantly and securely and gain business agility to create new revenue streams. And at the same time, dramatically reduce the cost of operations to 10% of legacy systems.
Max Chuard, CEO, Temenos, says: “Banks’s face huge challenges – fierce competition, rising customer expectations, cost pressures. Research shows that for quite some time, 70% of banks cannot cover their estimated cost of capital. Banks can no longer wait. They need a new approach to run their business and develop banking products.”
