OpenLink, who have been one of the global leaders in trading, treasury and risk management solutions for the energy, commodities, corporate and Fish for many years, today announced the launch of OpenLink Cloud which is, they claim is, “the world’s first and most comprehensive enterprise Cloud platform for trading, treasury and risk management.” 

Best of both combination

OpenLink Cloud is designed to transform trading, treasury and risk departments, by bringing together the best of:

    • the strength and security of the Microsoft Azure platform, and 
    • best-of-breed OpenLink security and tools to ensure that clients’ mission-critical systems and data are protected at all times.

Patrick Reames, Managing Partner of Commodity Technology Advisory the leading CTRM market analyst firm noted: “While Cloud deployment of commodity trading solutions in the low and mid-tiers of the market has increased in recent years, the investment by OpenLink in the OpenLink Cloud will undoubtedly accelerate this movement across all tiers of the market. The commitment by many of the world’s largest energy and commodity trading firms to adopt OpenLink’s enterprise-scale Cloud solutions is a pivotal development in terms of how these systems will be deployed going forward.”

OpenLink claim that, “Customers will have immediate access to almost limitless computing power with the introduction of OpenLink’s dynamic scaling capabilities, providing advanced data management and richer analytics that enable greater market understanding, speed and evidence-based decision-making.”

Supported by a robust set of custom tools and services, OpenLink Cloud is designed to help clients of all sizes get up and running quickly and to simplify management, monitoring and support of both production and non-production environments. John O’Malley, CEO of OpenLink, added: “If you think you knew OpenLink, take another look. We have made a significant investment in OpenLink Cloud in response to our clients’ feedback. They are looking to reduce costs, advance risk analytics and scale their operations to transform how they run their businesses. The response from clients and pent-up demand from prospects has been staggering. OpenLink Cloud enables us to deliver our market leading solutions faster and with attractive subscription pricing models.”

New opportunities with OpenLink Cloud

  • “These enhanced capabilities will enable departments to produce real-time analytics and improved hedging strategies, optimize capital movement and provide greater insight into profitability drivers, enhancing overall the information available for decision-making.
