Patrick Reames, Founder and Managing Partner “As the global energy and commodity markets continue to rapidly evolve, we are seeing increasing demand for services that provide critical trend analysis and insights around the intersection and convergence of new and emerging technologies, and the commercial practices of commodity trading, risk management, and logistics.  With increasing and rapid adoption of cloud technologies and the disaggregation of large-scale monolithic systems, technology buyers are increasingly seeking out those firms and solutions that can help them identify and leverage new technology tools to create more agile tech infrastructures and business processes. Given the wealth of research and market intelligence that ComTech provides via our advisory services, and through the CTRMCenter market portal, we see our 2018 results as indicating that we continue to be the first stop for those firms that seeking to update, replace or launch new technologies solutions to support their energy and commodity trading and management activities.”

Vasey, Managing Partner. “More than ever, having the ability to access independent research and real world, practical and pragmatic expertise either through ComTech’s analyst services or via the CTRMCenter, has become more important than ever and welcomed by the industry.
