ECONOMIC PRESSURES, MARKET REGULATION AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES ARE RESHAPING PLAYERS IN THE COMMODITIES AND UTILITIES INDUSTRIES
Our experience spans the energy supply chain – from strategy and market entry, regulation and compliance, governance and risk management, operating model and architecture design, to custom or package-based systems implementation and integration.
As a key technology supplier to many Commodity firms, including a Top-3 Oil & Gas major, in addition to a growing Utilities practice, we have used our Queen’s Award-winning delivery approach – Enterprise Agile to deliver varied assignments including implementing and integrating CTRM systems, architecture optimisation, bespoke software development and the provision of expert advisory services in the development of strategy, roadmaps and business cases.
IN THE COMMODITIES AND UTILITIES INDUSTRIES, WE HAVE:
- Delivered Business Consulting to one of Europe’s largest energy houses. This included understanding their business performance, monitoring their health status against their peers and other market entries, and fine-tuning their Operations and commercial processes to achieve profitable growth.
- Built and implemented a Crude and Products trading valuation and exposure engine for a global Oil and Gas major. This delivered improvements to real-time exposure, P&L and risk management oversight.
- Delivered a platform to help a global utilities provider improve flexibility and capability related opportunities in the power market.
- Modernised a global agriculture CTRM platform for a large commodities house, enabling the business to improve its response to market opportunities and benefit from a consolidated position and exposure management capability. This platform handles thousands of trades every day.
E.ON is one of the UK’s leading power and gas companies, generating electricity, and retailing power and gas. BJSS is helping this utility with an aggressive programme of change that includes several projects and a transition to the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
WITH A BROADER PERSPECTIVE, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
We bring fresh perspectives to our Commodities and Utilities clients.
New business opportunities are prevalent in the Energy sector. From fossil-based and renewable sources, to a shifting political and regulatory landscape, existing players are offering new solutions to their clients, while new entrants are introducing fresh technologies and services to disrupt. By enabling technology transformation, players in this challenging industry can solve their greatest challenges, service their clients better, and apply greater fiduciary rigour to their investors. These are our thoughts on how Energy organisations can achieve this.
