Rising Star Partner of the Year – Vodeno
Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) is emerging as a megatrend within financial services, where licensed banks integrate their digital banking services directly into the products of other non-financial businesses. In September of 2021, Temenos, Vodeno and Aion Bank announced a strategic collaboration to accelerate the adoption of BaaS in Europe, a market currently estimated at over USD 3 billion. Through this alliance, clients will be able to instantly issue digital debit and credit cards for retail and business banking customers. Additionally, existing Temenos clients can benefit from financial services embedded in personalized customer journeys, delivered in real-time, at the right touchpoint with intelligent and contextual experiences. The Temenos Banking Cloud combined with Vodeno’s proposition will help banks and non-banks to create, deploy, consume and monetize new banking services.
Technology Partner of the Year – Red Hat
This award is the culmination of a decade’s worth of collaboration with Red Hat, leading to the development of a new offering in 2021 to enable banks to deliver digital banking automation. The integration between Temenos Infinity and Red Hat Process Automation Manager delivers enhanced digital experiences for clients and the ability for banks to scale more efficiently across the open hybrid cloud to meet industry demands today, tomorrow, and beyond.
