TRM Ancillary Software Vendor and Product SourceBook

Introduction to the CommodityPoint Trading & Risk Management Ancillary Software SourceBook The CommodityPoint TRM Ancillary Software SourceBook is designed to be a useful and usable resource to help those seeking software solutions that support or enhance the functional capabilities of their trading infrastructures, including their core commodity trading and risk management systems. This document should be viewed as a starting point in that selection process, providing a high-level guide to allow you to select a long list of vendors for inclusion in an RFI and/or RFP process. It is NOT designed to be a replacement for your selection process. TRM Ancillary software is simply often too complex to be selected properly without a reliable and complete selection process. We anticipate that the CommodityPoint TRM Ancillary Software SourceBook will allow you to compile a list of vendors that may include some you might otherwise not have considered or may even not previously been aware of. In that way, we believe it can make your selection process more complete. We have developed a readily consumable format for each vendor and product listing that has summary information about each vendor and product that includes:

• • • • • •

Functional and commodity coverage Contact details Product and vendor information Representative clients Geographical and industry segment distribution of users Website details

The product functionality and other information are presented using charts which are easily readable providing information about the vendor’s functional coverage. CommodityPoint’s methodology for constructing the Sourcebook was to develop a spreadsheet and questionnaire for each vendor. The spreadsheet was completed by the vendor in which they identified by commodity and function or feature whether their software had capabilities in that area. These were inspected by CommodityPoint and some adjustments made before final collation of the information. The questionnaire was used, in part, to complete the vendor/product listing along with information collected in other CommodityPoint surveys and research. The listings are compiled by CommodityPoint analysts. If you are aware of a product that should be considered for inclusion in this TRM Ancillary Software SourceBook, please let us know. We are dedicated to making this and every SourceBook by CommodityPoint the ultimate resource for industry participants seeking data and information on software products and their vendors.
