Redwood Shores, Calif. – July 15, 2010

News Facts

Leading research and advisory firm, Celent, has named Oracle a leader in core banking sales for 2010.

Celent’s Big Leagues Table ranks vendors on the number of new name core banking deals won in the 12 months ending September 30, 2009.
The Celent Big Leagues Table assesses the success of a core banking vendor based on a proxy for value of the deals won, rather than the number. A ranking that revolves around the number of deals would give a skewed representation, because it would not take into account the size of the implementation. Celent believes that a sales ranking should include both the size of the deals and an adjustment for the geographical location of the implementation.
According to the report, “Oracle topped the Celent Big Leagues Table for 2009, beating out other competitors like Temenos and TCS. Oracle had some high-profile wins that kept it at the top.”
The report also noted that, “(Oracle’s) popularity can be seen by the fact that it led the rankings in all the regions, except for Western Europe. It had a clear advantage in its traditional African and Asian markets, with deals ranging from large banks to small cooperative financial institutions.
