ETRM Integration and Curve Management are topics with an emerging prominent focus for many companies. With an increasing intensity and number of risks, more and more companies are learning the importance of curve management applied to risk mitigation. As the number of data sources continues to grow and the level of sophistication in building forward curves becomes more refined, the development and maintenance of internally built forward curves is increasing strain on companies’ capital and resources. The importance of incorporating automated forward curves as a tool for risk management is proving to be paramount for companies that want to stay competitive. ZE’s enterprise data and risk management solution, ZEMA, offers a suite of solutions for business process automation, curve management and operational decision support. ZEMA Curve Manager enhances the integration and transfer of curves with all third party trade and risk systems, and provides a fully automated workflow engine that allows you to create, map, persist, validate and edit market based forward curves.
ZE is committed to staying informed about the latest trends and developments in the energy and commodities industry, and sharing this knowledge with its fellow market participants. ZE continues to offer a series of enterprise data and risk management workshops across North America, Europe and Asia. The intention of these worldwide events is to actively share expertise to market participants and facilitate effective technology transfer and best practices across regions. The Lunch and Learn provides a friendly environment for participants to discuss current issues, engage with solutions experts, and develop relationships within the industry’s community.
