SunGard has been positioned as a category leader by Chartis Research in its inaugural RiskTech Quadrant for energy trading risk management (ETRM) solutions.

Chartis, a research and advisory firm that provides technology and business advice to the global risk management industry, analyzed a range of ETRM solutions for their completeness and market potential. SunGard’s Aligne solution scored highly in both dimensions.

Aligne is a configurable, flexible and modular multi-commodity software solution suite that integrates trading, risk/control, credit, fuels procurement, asset operations, back-office, treasury/finance and senior management information needs. It helps users streamline operations and achieve greater control and features a component-based structure to help customers quickly adapt to business change.

Peyman Mestchian, managing partner at Chartis Research, said, “Valuation, pricing, and risk management in an energy context require robust and flexible technology solutions. In addition, risk management strategies need to both cover the existing regulatory requirements and be flexible enough to cope with changes to the regulations. As a category leader, SunGard offers a flexible, enterprise ETRM solution that can help customers align risk with portfolio management, decision-making, and performance management.”

Andrew Bateman, president of SunGard’s Energy business, said, “SunGard’s priority is to help commodity firms address challenging issues proactively by helping them do more with less. SunGard’s energy solutions help customers understand, monitor and manage their commodity risk exposure as well as deal with the ever changing financial and physical market regulatory environment.”
