“The reason for  Lacima’s success is clear.  This year the survey both identifies risk metrics as one of the hottest growing concerns for energy and commodity companies, as well as the fact that  the traditional “C/ETRM systems have not necessarily evolved to provide the risk calculations to meet these needs”.  This is where Lacima steps in.  As the global leader in energy analytics we play that pivotal role in ensuring that the risk metrics are valid and now with our recently launched Lacima Trader suite, users can have consistent risk metrics from pre-deal trading analysis through to post-deal risk management.  No other vendor provides this capability.” noted Chris Strickland, CEO Lacima.
