Banking technology provider Temenos has teamed up with telecommunications equipment and consumer electronic giant Huawei this week. Through the partnership, Temenos will make its cloud-native core banking solution available on the Huawei Public Cloud.
The agreement makes Temenos the first core banking software certified with Huawei infrastructure and Huawei Public Cloud.
Specifically, banks will be able to use Huawei Public Cloud to modernize their core banking systems, an action that is critical in today’s digital-first, partnership-forward banking environment. Ultimately, modernizing their core will help banks scale, reduce cost, and gain operational efficiencies by increasing agility and opening up new business models.
“Together, we can help digital-first banks as well as large banks in need of core modernization accelerate their move to the cloud,” said Temenos President of Strategic Growth Philip Barnett. “Our API-first, cloud-native core banking solution based on Huawei Cloud will provide flexibility, agility, elasticity, and accelerate time to market for banks.”
The two will focus on marketing in China, which represents a six billion dollar addressable market. Temenos’ solution will also be available to the broader APAC region and include Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East.
Temenos serves 3,000+ banking and financial institutions worldwide representing 1.2 billion people with its cloud-native, API-first technology. Huawei counts more than 2,000 financial institution clients worldwide, including 47 of the world’s top 100 banks.
