The company was started in November 1993, by George Koukis and Kim Goodall having acquired the rights to GLOBUS, the successful banking software platform developed by a team of technical and banking experts in 1988. The company was renamed to Temenos, in reference to a lecture on money given by Hans-Wolfgang Frick at the Temenos Academy , and continued to develop and market GLOBUS.
In 2001, Temenos went public, and is listed on the main segment of the SWX Swiss Exchange . Also in 2001, Temenos acquired a mainframe core banking application aimed at high-end retail banks, originally developed by IBM, and now marketed as Temenos Corebanking.
On 30 September 2003, Temenos launched its T24 banking package. T24 was based on GLOBUS, but with a state-of-the-art banking technology platform. This was the result of 3 years of development effort and an investment of more than US$24 million.In 2011, George Koukis stepped down as chairman and became a non-executive director, and Andreas Andreades became chairman.
In 2021, Temenos has launched a new collaborative fintech marketplace, Temenos Exchange. The marketplace offers pre-integrated and approved fintech solutions that help reduce development costs.
