Aspect Enterprise Solutions Highlights Success In The Cloud During International Petroleum Week 2013 In London

February 5, 2013 - Aspect Enterprise Solutions, provider of multi-commodity trading and risk management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications delivered in the Cloud, is hosting its 4th Annual In-Office Networking and Solution Demo Meetings in London during International Petroleum (IP) Week, February 18-22.

Commodities trading professionals are invited to request an appointment during this week at http://www.aspectenterprise.com/solutions/aspect_ctrm/ipweek_1301.php. There is no fee to attend.

During the week's events at its central London office, Aspect will demonstrate to clients and prospective clients how cost-effective, reliable, and secure Cloud-based applications are for businesses big and small. Over the past two years, Aspect's client base has grown substantially, adding dozens of new customers and hundreds of users to its trade, risk and operations solution suite, AspectCTRM.

Its technology platform is the only one in the trading community to host both ETRM/CTRM solutions and market data and analytics together, via the same password in the same, seamless environment. AspectDSC is its Decision Support Center for traders, which allows users to access important real time and historical futures and spot prices from leading sources like Platts and Dow Jones and exchanges like CME and London Metal Exchange (LME). Pricing can then be used in portfolio management and risk activities in AspectCTRM.

"We're adding more customers and users than our competition through quick deploy, flexible subscriptions and applications. Our customers understand the pricing up front, as it's listed right on our Website, and there are no surprises or long installment time frames," says Steve Hughes, Aspect CEO.

"With our leading Cloud solutions, companies enjoy a real competitive advantage over older, client/server systems," says Hughes. "And our recent awards for Technology House of The Year, and Excellence in CTRM - further prove our position in the market, as a leader."

This year's discussions and demonstrations will revolve around key enhancements over the past year, such as new supply chain functionality for logistics, inventory, blending and rail car management. Aspect will show how its customers are meeting different challenges throughout the world.

Regulations are also a growing concern for commodity trading professionals, and Aspect's powerful reporting features deliver necessary transparency and compliance. Other key topics address integration challenges, and how Aspect interfaces with financial software, and ERP systems such as Oracle and SAP to name a few.

"Consumers and businesses alike now rely on the Cloud to perform every day functions, such as banking and shopping. During IP Week we'll share our customer success stories from leading global trading companies, and small trading shops" adds Hughes.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
