CTRM software for the front, middle and back office
Supply and demand imbalances in recent years have caused extreme price volatility throughout the crude oil and natural gas markets, creating a challenging operating environment for oil and gas companies. Navigating this environment demands robust, highly configurable technology - technology such as Allegro's energy trading software.
Trading & Risk Management Software: Buy or Build?
While you might be thinking about developing your own software for commodity management in-house,
you have to consider whether doing so makes the most sense. A report from Allegro, "Build vs. Buy,"
explains how a CTRM system may be the right decision instead.
