2016 CONFERENCE THEME
The theme of the 2016 CTRM Conference will be “CTRM in a low commodity price environment”.
The event and presentations will focus on maximizing value from investments in CTRM software, from the initial procurement through its ongoing support and maintenance, paying close attention to cloud and non-traditional delivery of CTRM software. In a year in which the price of crude oil and most other commodities reached new lows, the key message for users and vendors is that now, more than ever, E/CTRM software is truly mission critical and being able to procure an affordable solution and then measure its value, is key in advancing its capabilities. Our industry is constantly changing at an ever-increasing pace and E/CTRM software must evolve to meet those changes, be cost effective and deliver business benefits.
The topics to be explored will include CTRM in the cloud, evolving software pricing models, measuring success, identifying value, dealing with data, analytics and optimization, for example.
