Aspect Enterprise Solutions, a leading provider of multi-commodity trading, risk management and operations management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications delivered in the Cloud, today announced that it has won the top global award for "Excellence in CTRM Software" by Commodities Now, the official publication of Commodity Business Awards.

Aspect, along with a host of other top companies in their respective disciplines, was recognized for its leading trading and risk management solution, AspectCTRM, before industry peers and customers last week at a gala dinner at London's St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. Winners were chosen based on several criteria, including votes from industry participants.

"This award is a significant achievement. Being recognized globally as the top CTRM software provider is prestigious in itself, but what makes us even prouder is that we were voted in by our valued customers and industry peers. This is really a true reflection of our credibility in the marketplace," says Aspect President & CEO Steve Hughes.

This "Excellence In CTRM Software" award follows Aspect's recent award by Energy Risk Asia as "Technology House Of The Year." (See details here http://www.aspectenterprise.com/resources/news/article_09_27_12.php). Aspect's combination of Cloud technology and business solutions which are rapidly deployed and easily configured to meet the global needs of commodities trading and supply companies is winning accolades throughout the world. Aspect was also named to Gartner's Magic Quadrant for ETRM Platforms for the third year in a row.

According to publisher Commodities Now, these awards recognize and reward talent and excellence throughout the commodity complex. Recognized companies are those making a significant impact in the way commodity business is conducted and, making a positive contribution to the development of markets, client responsibility, and investor satisfaction. A complete list of awards winners can be found at www.commoditybusinessawards.com

Aspect has been delivering fully Web-based market data, trading, risk and operations management solutions for almost 13 years. Cloud computing across industries is dramatically reducing the price of business planning software, and leveling the playing field for smaller and mid-size companies who could not previously afford professional software deployments due to the high cost of hardware, software and maintenance. These costs no longer exist for Web-based applications. Aspect lists its products and subscription prices on its website at http://www.aspectenterprise.com/solutions/editions_pricing.php.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
