month, as recently seen in Australia.

ABN AMRO has been a pioneer in digital banking and a Temenos client for
over a decade. Temenos and ABN AMRO have a proven record of
co-innovation. ABN AMRO implemented Temenos T24 Core Banking platform –
the forerunner to Temenos T24 Transact – to transform its corporate
banking activities in 2009 and serve the needs of its international
business in nine countries. ABN AMRO also uses Temenos Payments. The
bank recently selected
the Temenos Continuous Deployment
product to speed up its software
delivery and rapidly launch new innovations.

Friso Westra, Head of IT Development Core Banking International of
ABN AMRO said:
“We selected Temenos as our technology partner to
future-proof the ongoing growth of our private bank. Working closely
with Temenos and our implementation partner, Cognizant we experienced a
smooth go-live. I am excited as this is a big step for ABN AMRO in
harmonizing our IT infrastructure and speeding up digitization. We run
our corporate and part of our private banking operations now from one
single digital platform. We expect IT costs savings and efficiencies
from the standardization of processes and products. With Temenos
WealthSuite we are confident of achieving our ambition in offering the
most innovative wealth management products and services in the industry.”

Max Chuard, Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We are proud to
support ABN AMRO, one of the largest and most innovative banks in
Europe, with its digital transformation journey. ABN AMRO will have a
single, state- of- the- art banking platform and benefit from massive
economies of scale, reduced IT operational costs and personalized
customer experience. The platform will support traditional and digitized
interactions, process automation and standardization of products, which
means faster time to market and increased business agility. Our
cloud-native, cloud-agnostic and advanced open API software enables ABN
AMRO to drastically reduce transformation time and cost.”

Santosh Thomas, President, Global Growth Markets, Cognizant, said:
“We are excited to be working on ABN AMRO’s digital transformation
project with Temenos, a long-standing strategic partner. The digital
banking platform, based on Temenos software, will enable ABN AMRO to
