Temenos has signed a global strategic partnership with Cognizant to enhance its service and delivery capabilities for its T24 solution. Temenos has said that it is committed to strengthening its partner programme to broaden systemic capacity to market and implement its product. This will enable the company to improve margins and cash generation during its next phase of growth.
As part of the partnership agreement, Cognizant is investing in training certain of its associates to deliver T24 implementations over a three-year period. It will also work together with Temenos to establish a global Centre of Excellence. Financial institutions worldwide will benefit from this best-of-breed partnership as the joint partnership goes to market.
Cognizant is already engaged on a number of Temenos T24 implementations and will also work with Temenos’ Complementary Solutions Partners to provide solutions to banks where required.
Cognizant’s consultants will be fully trained on implementing T24 Model Bank, will apply the Temenos Implementation Methodology to all projects and will be able to avail themselves of Temenos Application Management services for localisations and bespoke requirements.
