Our client replaced two internally developed trade entry systems that were used by wholesale power and natural gas traders. The applications were the primary deal entry systems that were integrated with SunGard’s Aligne ETRM system. The client chose to use Allegro’s ETRM system as their replacement deal entry system with an interface into Aligne to manage risk.
The client’s goal was to use Allegro’s “out of the box” functionality with minimal customizations. Our consultant had extensive knowledge of ETRM systems as well as functional knowledge of front, mid, and back office processes. Our consultant was able to use their expertise to simplify business processes which allowed the client to use the consultant in a variety of roles. This included requirements gathering, documentation and mapping of interfaces, test case development, and credit workflow enhancements.
Replacing the internally developed deal entry systems gave the business the flexibility to grow while providing the benefits of packaged software solutions. The Allegro – Aligne combination provided the client the best of “deal entry” through Allegro and “risk management/report tools” of Aligne. Our consultant was able to leverage their previous experiences to provide guidance in a number of different functions which saved the client time and resource dollars.
