TEMENOS CoreBanking (TCB) is a contemporary functionally-rich core banking platform, deployed on IBM mainframe technology and designed around IBM's Information Framework (IFW) industry banking model, to maximise re-use, eliminate duplication and minimise redundancy.

It is designed to enable application components to be implemented independently, allowing banks to transition from their evolved, fragmented and highly complex legacy processing environments on a step-by-step incremental basis.
