What is ETRM Software?

As described by CTRM Center, ETRM (energy trading and risk management) software is that category of software applications, architectures and tools that support the business processes associated with trading commodities. In the broadest sense, commodity trading means both the buying and selling of energy, the movement and delivery of those energies and associated risk management activities (ETRM falls under CTRM Commodity Trade Risk Management).


CTRMCloud offers “CTRM as a service” as a modern easily deployed subscription service to help organizations across the commodity value-chain with real time decision support & intraday reporting.


CTRMCloud delivers the benefits of a modern, cloud-native solution including rapid implementations, continuous product enhancements, high performance, scalability, better user experience – all at a significantly lower TCO.


The CTRM as a Service platform utilizes a microservices based architecture to enable modular deployment for point solutions, ready to scale with your business requirements. At the same time, it has the breadth and depth of the functionality and the robustness required to serve as an enterprise-wide, end-to-end CTRM or ETRM software for large, global companies with complex business problems.


CTRMCloud has been built around a native cloud technology stack providing key benefits to the user.

  • Auto-provisioning: manage resources automatically The traditional legacy providers resources are physically provided onsite on in the cloud, CTRM Cloud applications enable automatic provision of resources. We facilitate on-demand, self-service, programmatic provisioning, and releasing of resources as the platform is utilized. This enables the business-critical applications to run smoothly with on-demand allocation of resources directly from the platform.
  • Auto-scalability: handle continuous business needs automatically CTRMCloud platform and applications are enabled with auto-scale feature to handle continuous business needs. This feature enables our platform to deal with complex up-down process needs as our clients run and schedule their processes. 
  • Auto redundancy: minimize failure risks automatically The CTRMCloud platform is inherently resilient to failures. We automatically handle the outages and enable corrective actions. In the event of failure, application processing instantly moves from one data center to another without interrupting the service. This is executed so swiftly that the end user doesn’t even know that there was an outage. In case of the occurrence of a partial outage in one data center, the cloud-based applications will continue running seamlessly.
  • Continuous improvement The latest version of the CTRMCloud platform is made available to all customers as soon as released. Immediate upgrades put new features and functionality as soon as available. Software enhancements are typically released frequently. No software updates.
  • Implementation CTRMCloud solution is available for use today with minimum implementation effort. There is no need for 3rd party consultants or a lengthy implementation process which legacy CTRM and ETRM software providers will require.


CTRMCloud offers CTRM as a service, allowing for data to be collected, analyzed and reported in near real time from all areas of the business. Contact us to learn more.
