BME Innova is BME’s subsidiary responsible for
innovation. Its aim is to act as a channel for the tech-
nological capabilities that form the backbone of BME,
making them available to Spanish companies as drivers
of their competitiveness and profitability. Its mission
is to integrate BME’s experience in managing markets
and technological know-how, turning this into products
and services for any company. Since it was established,
BME Innova has developed various services based on
this philosophy.
TECHNOLOGICAL INFRASTRUCTURES
Firstly, the range of services provided by BME AL-
TERNATIV was developed to offer business continuity

quently, the range has expanded to encompass services

siness continuity. These services are split into Housing,

Business Continuity Consortium (CECON), BME INNO-
VA actively promoted the Business Continuity Institute,

Alongside the business continuity services and
based on BME’s experience in financial messaging in
the SWIFT network and in TARGET 2, BME INNOVA
established the SWIFT Bureau Service and worked on
designing financial communication solutions, giving rise
to the BME HIGHWAY platform. This IT platformoffers
accessto banking and financial services based on the
one-stop-shop approach, while guaranteeing the integra-
tion of all financial messaging with management (ERP)

Subsequently, BME INNOVA launched the range
of management software services for financial insti-
tutions, BME CONFIDENCENET, aimed at facilitating
