The company is named Temenos after an ancient Greek word, and it means something sacred. When you have something of value, you put a wall around it, that wall is not called ‘wall’, it’s a Temenos. Our company name symbolizes our promise to build and protect the relationships we have with everyone who comes in contact with us, be it employees, clients, partners or suppliers.
Times have moved on a lot since the early days and today we’re a much bigger company but our mission to help banks across the world to perform better through our world-class software has remained.
We make a point of celebrating this clear sense of purpose on our anniversary, which falls on 16 November.
