ComTechAdvisory: What is Contigo seeing in terms of uptake of the ETRM in cloud and what are the benefits of such an approach?
Adrian Bullock: We are seeing strong interest in implementing in the cloud from both small and bigger players. Over 80% of our contracts signed in the last 18 months are implemented in the cloud, we have also migrated a number of our deployed clients to the cloud in the last year.
ComTechAdvisory: What does Contigo see as the main pros and cons of a single tenanted versus multi tenanted approach for ETRM software?
Adrian Bullock: The flexibility we can offer our clients with a single tenanted model greatly outweighs the operational advantages of a multi tenanted architecture. Using a shared infrastructure with a high level of automation of releases and upgrades gives us many of the advantages of a multi tenanted architecture whilst still maintaining the ability to have a high level of customization for each of our clients and ensuring data segregation. We have never had an actual or potential client insist on a multi tenanted model.
