The data held within a core banking platform is the most important and valuable data within a bank. This data is the main source of customer, product, and transactional data, which is the lifeblood of modern digital banking and drives everything from hyper-personalized customer engagement to effective risk management. By providing real-time access to core banking data, banks can achieve better reporting and analytics, faster compliance processes, including transparency related to BCBS 239 and other data regulations, and customer personalization with the provision of relevant, contextual, timely offers. This helps banks to deliver experiences that delight their customers and drive loyalty.
Banks need access to all data within the core banking system in real-time, and in a compliant manner. Real-time data is essential for the modern digital bank as it allows them to react instantly to customer needs and risk events. Banks traditionally struggle with the extraction, cleansing, blending, and optimization of core banking data and many banks are attempting to build internal data solutions to solve these issues with high costs and high failure rates. With Temenos Transact Data Hub, banks now have an embedded data platform within Temenos Transact that provides them performant access to high quality data.
Banks also recognize the value of their data as they seek to personalize customer engagement, improve fraud detection, and mitigate risk. Temenos Transact Data Hub enables banks to easily meet strategic goals for data availability, data quality, and data governance. For instance, using Temenos Transact Data Hub, a bank can stream and transform real-time transactional data into a highly performant, cloud based data stores.

Craig Focardi, Senior Analyst, Celent, added: ““Many banks who are renovating or upgrading their core banking platforms attempt to build internal data, reporting, and analytical capabilities along with the core banking project. These projects impact existing resource pools and may increase core project execution risk, timelines, and costs. Data hubs aim to solve data/analytics transformation goals while banks are upgrading core systems to leverage in-house data stores. Embedding a data platform within a core system and IT stack can be an effective solution for banks to optimize the value of their data asset while undertaking other major digital transformation projects.
