The CTRM Conundrum: The Good, the Bad, and the Potentially Unprofitable
CTRM is powerful, function-rich, and offers a robust solution to the needs of ETRM/CTRM
business operations – yet there are common challenges every team faces.
- The application’s deep-dive capabilities make it a complex tool to use effectively,
requiring knowledgeable, dedicated expertise.
- This expertise is concentrated in the hands of a few experts worldwide.
- Managed services from a large consulting firm may prove far too costly, and those
services are often facilitated by a junior team, rather than the senior consultants you
- Experienced in-house CTRM teams may manage day-to-day operations well, but
may not be equipped to keep pace with the demands of your changing business needs.
Given that, what can be done to simultaneously ensure your business has the technical
expertise it needs, that it’s not seeking a solution that’s out of scope, and that it retains the cutting edge to set your business up for both short and long-term growth?
The answer is a surprisingly simple one, which stems not from a business-as-usual approach,
but one that leverages all of your business’ CTRM platforms’ strengths in your favor. A new approach to managed services we call Run Smart® for CTRM.
