Eka Software Solutions, the leading global provider of cloud-based Smart Commodity Management software solutions, will host the webinar, “Why Advanced Analytics with an ‘Always On’ Intelligence Engine Could Be the Key to Success in a Fast-Changing Market” on Thursday, September 28, 2017, at 11:00 AM ET. The webinar will feature Patrick Reames, founder and managing partner, Commodity Technology Advisory (ComTech), and Michael Schwartz, CMO of Eka Software Solutions. They will explore the rapidly evolving nature of the North American energy market and share highlights from ComTech’s exclusive new white paper, “Data Aggregation and Analytics – Addressing the Challenges of an Evolving Energy Market.” Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the white paper.

Webinar participants will examine new and strengthening influences that create additional risks and impact profitability in the North American energy market.

  • Learn how to manage the massive amounts of data now available for better decision making.
  • Understand how the growing influence of LNG and pipeline exports to Mexico are impacting natural gas prices.
  • Hear how domestic drilling and production activities are impacting global oil prices.
  • Gain insight into how the influx of renewables is affecting asset holders.
  • Hear why you need analytics with an energy-specific, “always on” intelligence engine to take advantage of the opportunities created by today’s fast-moving and volatile markets.
  • "Energy companies rely on data to make decisions, but the amount of data available has exploded," said Patrick Reames, Founder and Managing Partner of Commodity Technology Advisory. “This data resides in disparate systems – including CTRM, ETRM, ERP, and spreadsheets – and manually collecting and analyzing the information in a timely way is just not possible. They need advanced analytics that can aggregate and analyze data from multiple systems to gain a true understanding of the market."

    “Energy markets are changing, with LNG, shale, and renewable energy gaining traction,” said Michael Schwartz, CMO of Eka. “Energy companies need quick, accurate analytics to keep up with the rapidly changing markets, but the volume, variety, and velocity of data makes analytics challenging. It could take days or weeks to manually collect and analyze data from various systems. Eka Analytics collects and analyzes data from different systems, enabling better, faster decision-making.”
