This white paper explores the need for innovative technology in the ever-changing energy trading industry. High volatility and rapidly escalating prices present a variety of challenges in today’s trading organizations. Traders must be able to identify and execute strategies quickly and efficiently, while also managing the associated risk.
The systems and processes of the past are no longer sufficient in this environment. Real-time optimization, instant transparency into portfolios, and advanced analytics for improved decision-making have become necessities in order for companies to be profitable.
Energy trading and risk management (ETRM) solution providers have begun adopting a Service Oriented Architecture and utilizing a Grid Computing environment that enable traders to calculate key metrics and trading strategies rapidly and with confidence.
This paper discusses the various needs and challenges the industry is facing and how, with technology, companies can make efforts to improve their profitability and reduce risks.
