SunGard Launches Aligne Data Management Toolkit

Houston, TX - 22 July 2009

SunGard has launched a new suite of energy data management tools for Aligne, a multi-commodity software solution suite that integrates data management, trading, risk, credit, fuels procurement, emissions compliance, back-office, treasury/finance and management information needs. SunGard’s Aligne Data Management Toolkit (DMT) helps decision makers achieve business agility through analysis of market and transaction data from multiple sources.

In volatile energy commodity markets, speed and accuracy of information are critical to effective energy trading decision making. Aligne DMT is a flexible and scalable data management framework for processing, analyzing and leveraging energy information across the enterprise. It aggregates energy information from multiple sources, validates the data and presents it within a consistent framework to help companies achieve speed and accuracy in data interpretation and decisioning. Aligne DMT provides a Web-based application to help users of all technical levels navigate, chart and analyze energy market data.

Matt Mandalinci, president of SunGard’s energy solutions business unit, said, “Aligne DMT will provide companies with a robust tool to manage their data through the provision of timely and accurate energy market data.”

Aligne DMT’s “plug and play” functionality allows organizations to purchase and use only those tools and functionality needed, helping simplify deployment and avoiding unnecessary cost. Each tool is developed to be highly customizable and configurable without the need for custom consulting work, helping to save both time and money.

Designed for the full spectrum of commodity trading markets (oil, power, gas, emissions, metals, biofuels, and others), Aligne DMT helps customers manage their own data, and to integrate it with components in SunGard’s Aligne solution suite as well as with customer-specific and downstream systems. This functionality helps companies streamline processes and integrate information across multiple business operations for enterprise-wide decision support. Aligne DMT also includes tools for decision support and analysis such as a charting tool for data visualization with 3D charts, and a drag-and-drop formula tool for creating complex data formulas and functors.
