Real World Fintech : Temenos Community Forum 2017


For the third consecutive year, MCB Consulting (MCBCS) has been a proud participant at the Temenos Community Forum (TCF), which was held on the 26th and 27th April 2017. After the previous two editions of this forum in Istanbul (2015) and Barcelona (2016), this 18th annual TCF brought us to Lisbon: the culturally vibrant capital of Portugal. This two-day seminar which had “Real World Fintech” as main theme, provided further strategic opportunities to us and greatly broadened our networking prospects.

The banking industry has for too long apprehended the “Fintech hype” and all it could entail. Consequently, the purpose of this TCF was to bring together people from both worlds, namely the financial and IT industries, roughly about 1200 attendees, to demystify Fintech and ease the flow of innovation. Throughout the forum, Temenos showcased its latest solutions and demonstrated, using real life examples, how digitilisation affects the financial sector and how partnering was a remedy to solve the issues encountered during this change.

Being an emerging consulting company allying both banking experience and consulting proficiency, it was of utmost importance for us to attend this event and draw from the expertise of all the renowned attendees.
“What you get out of TCF depends on what you put in.”, says Mr. David Arnott, CEO of Temenos. Following this adage, we have set up all the rudiments in order to make our participation in this TCF 2017 a fruitful one. The team fostered all its savoir-faire and expertly set forth our various services.

We are now looking forward to TCF 2018, which will be held in Dublin.
