Micro Service Offering: Upgrade Analysis

Too often, commodities trading companies settle for basic functionality from their CTRM software. Perhaps they lack the specialized IT resources to align an upgrade’s more advanced features and modules to their ideal business practices. Other times, they find it difficult to configure data, events, reports, interfaces, and application dependencies to their upstream and downstream processes.

Value Creed and NTT Data aligned to provide robust CommoditySmart Upgrade Analysis. The service, performed by our experienced professionals in tandem with our comprehensive software upgrade solution, uncovers and reports problems involving data structure, APIs, BI cubes, RPA bots, trade validation, and more.
