Built for Your Business. Built for the Cloud.
By Paul French, Chief Marketing Officer
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
While this quote is often attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, there is substantial debate as to whether he even said those words. Nevertheless, I can imagine the great human rights leader educating the masses on the need for a paradigm shift in commodity management … actually, upon immediate reflection, probably not.
Regardless of the true origin of the phrase as it’s popularly shared, it is unquestionably instructive to those of us dedicated to commodity management innovation. We must be the change we wish to see. We must make it easier to implement solutions. We must make our products simpler to use, easier to upgrade, faster to evolve and less expensive to operate.
For more than 30 years, Allegro has been driving innovation, as the first to marry physical and financial trading, the first to use a complete stack of non-proprietary technology and the first to be completely extensible. Horizon is the latest step in that innovation. Horizon is unique in that it is truly built for your business. It can be implemented, operated and upgraded at the pace of customers’ desks and departments.
With Horizon, there is no one-size-fits-all approach that’s far too common in the commodity trading and risk management software industry. Now, users can create a phased approach that begins with a single commodity or geography, knowing they have a solution that will grow as the needs of their business change. When it comes time for further innovation, it can be fast, but focused, to minimize the business risk and maximize value.
From the outset, Horizon was built for the cloud. From implementation methodologies that shorten configuration and testing, to leveraging the native elasticity to bring more resources to heavy processing tasks without investing in extra servers, and to adding DevOps capabilities to simplify application and infrastructure management, Horizon is designed to maximize both the processes and the technology available in the public cloud. And while Allegro wants to lead change in our industry, we respect the fact that the high security and privacy requirements of our customers may be a better fit with private tenant environments.
Whether you are dedicated to your own infrastructure, looking at a step toward the benefits of running business applications in the cloud, or your organization has adopted a cloud-first strategy, Allegro Horizon is the most flexible, next-generation commodity management solution.
We are proud of the developments we’ve made with Horizon, because it is the platform that will drive the change necessary in our world. We believe your business would benefit from the Allegro Advantage. We think you will agree.
