Walldorf, April 18, 2024 – SAP Fioneer, a leading provider of financial services software solutions and platforms, has achieved a first place ranking in core banking/back-end systems in the Fintech Leaders 2024 Report by the Center for Financial Professionals (CeFPro).  

After winning the category for the first time in 2022, SAP Fioneer has regained this position. The international research organization CeFPro also named SAP Fioneer among the top 30 companies in the overall fintech ecosystem. The rankings categorize and evaluate leading fintech companies, vendors, and solution providers. For the 2024 report, approximately 2,500 responses were gathered from practitioners, end users, and subject matter experts from financial institutions.

SAP Fioneer have again taken the top spot in our core banking/back-end system ranking. This is an outstanding performance, showcasing their continued efforts to advance the industry and a testimony to their cutting-edge solutions following the carve-out from SAP in 2021”, comments Andreas Simou, Managing Director at CeFPro. 

“We are honored to have received this award for the second time. On top, being named as one of the leaders in the fintech ecosystem is a testament of our efforts and gives us the opportunity to reiterate our promise to the industry: we engineer the future of financial services software and enable FSIs to not only to withstand in challenging times and rapid development cycles, but also to emerge stronger from them“, adds Dr. Christoph Rösch, Managing Director Banking at SAP Fioneer.  

CeFPro’s Fintech Leaders report provides a comprehensive overview of the status, trends, opportunities, and investment priorities within the fintech industry for 2024. The research shows that while cybersecurity still is top of mind, customer experience rises in importance and comes second in the list of opportunities, underlining its importance as a measure of success for financial services institutions. Looking at the biggest opportunities for the next five years, artificial intelligence (AI) unsurprisingly takes the top spot, predicting a significant number of new initiatives throughout the industry.
