Mambu is positioned as a Challenger in Gartner’s 2020 Magic Quadrant for Global Retail Core Banking. This comes at a critical moment for the finance industry.

Faced with the economic impact of COVID-19, as well as increased competition from techfins (tech companies offering financial services) and neobanks, CEOs across financial institutions are accelerating their organisations’ banking transformation.

This is driving a core banking market surge, especially for cloud-native solutions and open banking initiatives.

As Technology Transforms, So Does Banking

The core banking market has changed dramatically over the past few years. This year there are just seven vendors included.

Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Global Retail Core Banking: Mambu Positioned as Challenger

The transformation in the Quadrant has mirrored the transformation of the banking industry - both demonstrate that legacy approaches cannot meet the changing needs of customers. They are being replaced by cloud-native, agile banking solutions that scale effectively and enable faster time-to-market.

Mambu is pleased to be positioned as a Challenger for the second year in a row. This is a reflection of the work of our product and customer success teams to bring strong business value and help drive growth for customers like N26, Santander’s Asto, Tyro, MSB, and Acesso Bank.

Our excellence in core banking operations and our pay-as-you-go pricing model empower large and small financial institutions to evolve with the market, quickly launching new products and services to meet changing customer needs.

Mambu’s cloud-native core banking platform is a pure SaaS solution, allowing us to continuously improve and serve customers anywhere in the world.

Challengers Today, Leaders Tomorrow

When we launched in 2011, we knew banks needed more agile and flexible technology. Over the past ten years, we’ve seen banks evolve and change more than in the previous 50 years.

Looking at the 2020 Quadrant and how much has changed in just a year, you may wonder how different the 2021 Quadrant will look. Given the rapid changes in our market, I will not make any predictions, but I will share that Mambu is focused on providing even better support to our growing customer base.

Our recent announcements of partnerships with Google Cloud, Transferwise and Backbase are examples of our commitment to building a strong partner network to support our customers globally.

We are also growing our customer support and delivery teams under a new VP of Customer Success, Peter Richmond. With this, Mambu will continue to provide cost-effective growth solutions to our customers, helping them to create new products and venture into new geographies through our composable platform.
