Temenos Reconfirmed as a Top Global Player and a Global Power Seller in 2019 Deals Report by Tier 1 Industry Analyst Firm



Reading Time: 3 minutes

  • A ‘Top Global Player’ for seventh consecutive year, signing 172
    deals with new and existing customers
  • A ‘Global Power Seller’ for new business deals for 13th consecutive
    year, with 60 new deals in 2018
  • The Forrester findings1 reveal that while banks previously saw
    digital banking as limited to digital channels, they now show
    increasing interest in end-to-end digital banking platforms.

GENEVA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the seventh consecutive year, Temenos (SIX : TEMN), the banking
software company
, has been named ‘Top Global Player’ for combined
deals in research firm Forrester’s prestigious Global
Banking Platform Deals Survey 2019
, a key benchmark for measuring
new and extended banking system business. In the same report, Temenos
has also reconfirmed its position as a ‘Global Power Seller’, with
Forrester noting that “Temenos earned its status as a Global Power
Seller for the 13th consecutive year”.

The Forrester findings2 reveal that while banks previously
saw digital banking as limited to digital channels, they now show
increasing interest in end-to-end digital banking platforms. The
research firm also highlights that there is lot of market hype around
‘new school’ players, they “may not be so transparent about their
capabilities or their market impact.” Forrester cautions buyers that,
established banking platform vendors tend to be more transparent than
core banking fintechs when it comes to market success and solution

Jost Hoppermann, Vice President and Principal Analyst, Forrester,
in the report: “The need – and the time – for discussions is
long gone: the transformation imperative in banking needs imminent
execution.[…] Very few banks and technology leaders disagree that banks
need complete digital transformation – and that they need to finalize it
by 2025 or sooner to avoid dying an analog-business death. Facing
less-than-comfortable time constraints and shrinking, in some cases
gruesome, margins, banks’ technology teams must look carefully for
off-the-shelf capabilities that help them to accelerate and shorten
their digital journey.”

Max Chuard, Chief Executive Officer, Temenos, said: We are proud
to be the sole vendor at the top off the combined deals pyramid and
recognized as a Global Power Seller for new named deals in Forrester’s
Global Banking Platform Deals Survey 2019. Our leadership is
accelerating; we launched our cloud-native and cloud-agnostic products
in 2019, we have the largest number of customers and the greatest scale
and reach across the globe and we are leaving the competition behind,
whether old or ‘new’ legacy vendors. We believe this is a testament to
the trust our customers place in our ability to deliver on their digital
transformation vision and plans. Supported by over 6,000 skilled
consultants deploying our software, we take a bank live every single

Forrester’s Global Banking Platform Deals Survey 2019 is an independent
survey conducted annually by Forrester. It assesses both the volume and
the geographical spread of banking platform sales to new and existing
customers for 2018 deals. The research is published to guide
decision-makers at financial institutions around the world in
effectively evaluating the plethora of banking software solutions

Temenos has also been named a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Global
Digital Banking Platforms, Q3 2018. Temenos launched at the start of the
year, Temenos
– a breakthrough digital front office product – and Temenos
T24 Transact
, the next generation in core banking. These new
products further demonstrate a commitment to constant innovation,
leveraging 25 years of functionality from 3,000 banks in more than 150
countries with the most advanced cloud-native, cloud-agnostic, API-first
technology and design-led thinking.

Loyalist College to launch Canada’s first Technology Access Centre for natural products and cannabis



Reading Time: 3 minutes


Loyalist College is the recipient of a $1,750,000 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) College and Community Innovation (CCI) Program grant over five years to launch Canada’s first Technology Access Centre (TAC) for natural products and cannabis. In addition, Loyalist received $1Mthrough the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) College-Industry Innovation Fund (CIIF) to add specialized equipment to the TAC.

Loyalist was one of 90 recipients at colleges, cégeps and polytechnics across the country to receive part of the $73M in funding, announced today by the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science and Sport, at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario. Through the CCI Program and the CIIF, this investment will help post-secondary institutions partner directly with local employers to facilitate commercialization and transform the results of research and development into new technologies to help businesses expand and grow.

The rapid growth of Canada’s cannabis, hops and natural products sectors positions Loyalist’s Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis (ARC) as a national innovation hub for small- to medium-sized enterprises. As a TAC, Loyalist will build on the ARC’s 15 years of natural product extraction expertise and analysis-based applied research. In transitioning to a TAC, Loyalist’s ARC will significantly increase the College’s capacity to lead applied research of commercially relevant natural products and cannabis, and to support innovation by enhancing industries’ access to sector-relevant expertise and technology.

The TAC initiative will cultivate an environment for College-industry partnerships to thrive while providing students with unparalleled opportunities for work-integrated learning; investigating extraction, isolation, and formulation; and product development. In partnership with the Quinte Economic Development Commission (QEDC), Loyalist will support the Bay of Quinte’s burgeoning natural products and cannabis sectors to generate regional socioeconomic benefits, and to provide opportunities for a new generation of innovators. Loyalist will also offer companies across Canada a supportive, community-oriented platform from which to enhance their productivity, expand their reach and augment their competitiveness in the global market.


“We are very grateful for NSERC’s continued support and proud to be Canada’s first TAC for natural products and cannabis. Loyalist currently has more than 25 companies interested in applied research, and as our ARC transitions into a TAC, we will be able to meet their requirements while significantly extending our network to help more companies to innovate. Our Biosciences and Cannabis Applied Science students will have the advantage of being involved in ground-breaking research that propels Canada forward as the world leader in cannabis and natural product developments.” – Dr. Ann Marie Vaughan, Loyalist College President & CEO

“It’s great to see this NSERC and CFI funding come through for Loyalist College’s launch of Canada’s first TAC for research in natural products and cannabis. Being able to conduct research in a state-of-the-art facility means that students working in the College’s ARC will be able to build up their expertise in product analysis; which can then be applied directly to commercial development. This is just the beginning of seeing a new series of natural products being designed, assessed, made and delivered from our region.” – Neil R. Ellis, Member of Parliament for Bay of Quinte

“I am so proud to see the innovation that is driving research and economic development in our rural community through Loyalist College’s ARC. Innovation is key to Rural Sustainability and this investment will ensure that we are training the next generation in the latest technological advances. I congratulate them on their NSERC and CFI grant, and wish them all the best of success.” – Mike Bossio, Member of Parliament for Hastings—Lennox and Addington

“The Quinte Economic Development Commission is proud to be a supporting partner with Loyalist College on this important initiative that is aligned with economic development opportunities and priorities in the region. The TAC will support industry research and innovation for companies in key industry sectors as well as helping students develop in-demand skills and experience. Congratulations to the team at Loyalist on launching this important project.” – Chris King, Chief Executive Officer, Quinte Economic Development Commission
