In this interview John Schlesinger, the Chief Enterprise Architect from Temenos points out that they were one of the first partners to be certified on PureSystems with their banking software running as a System pattern (and shortly an Application pattern) within PureSystems.
In terms of the latest trends in banking, John points out that banks are moving quickly to the self-assisted model where users complete their transactions on the web or on a phone. Whilst this provides a better experience for the customer, it also represents cost savings for the bank. Where it can cost $5 to complete a transaction in a bank branch, the same transaction can cost 10 cents on a laptop and 5 cents on a phone.
Temenos have long been a partner with IBM and currently all their customers use WebSphere MQ.
