KWA Analytics and Orchestrade partner for ETRM solution delivery

KWA square revised

Orchestrade and KWA Analytics, an award-winning, capital and energy market system specialist consulting group, have announced a strategic partnership to deliver Energy Trading and Risk Management (ETRM) systems to companies across the globe.

This partnership comes at a pivotal moment as energy markets have experienced unprecedented changes over the past five years. The global focus on achieving Net Zero, coupled with several significant geopolitical events, has spurred many companies to embark on ambitious digital transformation agendas. However, whilst many clients would like to move to a modern IT landscape centred around one or several ETRM’s, migrating to a new landscape is a complex project that extends beyond the boundaries of the ETRM system(s), especially when cross asset requirements are considered.

Orchestrade offers an award-winning top tier ETRM solution, specifically designed for today’s ever-changing energy markets. KWA Analytics is an award-winning consultancy and one of the world’s leading ETRM implementation specialists. Together, they will deliver transformative solutions for their global clients navigating the transition to new, efficient systems.

Phil Walsh, Director at KWA, shared his excitement about the collaboration, “KWA are extremely proud to be selected by Orchestrade as their ETRM delivery partner. We very much share Orchestrade’s vision of the combined value of their open, highly performant architecture and KWA’s track record of service delivery for sophisticated trading systems. I’m very excited to welcome Orchestrade to the leading systems that we provide services for.  The opportunity to provide the trading and risk management community with an expanded range of high value system implementation, integration and advisory services is the key strategic aim of KWA.”

Dale Emmerson, Global Lead – ETRM, at Orchestrade, said, “I have known the leadership team of KWA for a number of years and have always been impressed by their deep business and technical expertise around ETRM and their reputation in the market around client delivery. Orchestrade has always been focused on engineering the highest quality software and this partnership provides clients with access to a step-change ETRM platform combined with world leading project implementation. We are both motivated to improve the client experience.”
