capSpire Supports First Global Allegro Customer Summit as a Platinum Sponsor

capSpire will serve as a Platinum Sponsor at the 2018 Allegro Customer Summit, which will take place March 19–21, 2018, at the Marriott Marquis Houston in Houston, Texas. In addition to serving as an exhibitor, capSpire’s sponsorship includes hosting two happy hours to give conference attendees an opportunity to network. These events will take place on Tuesday, March 20, from 5:30–7 p.m. outside Salon E, and on Wednesday, March 21, from 5–7 p.m. outside Salon F.

This year’s summit is notable for being the first combined, global summit. Since the inception of Allegro summits in 1999, the European and American regions have hosted separate events. In 2018, customers and thought leaders from major regions around the world will converge to discuss critical factors affecting global commodity markets across diverse industries. Additionally, the Allegro team will share the latest developments and innovations in commodity trading and risk management (CTRM).

We are thrilled to be a part of this brand-new Allegro event, which will bring even more value to attendees with the shift toward a global perspective,” says Lance Laubach, capSpire Chief Executive Officer. “Our sponsorship of the summit reinforces our long-standing, close partnership with Allegro.”

As an official Allegro partner, capSpire serves the full spectrum of customers’ Allegro needs, from system implementation to upgrades, custom extensions, process optimization, system training, and flexible support. With a team comprising former, senior-level Allegro staff that has deep product expertise, capSpire delivers creative, technically advanced solutions that enhance Allegro’s value. Some of capSpire’s solutions will be highlighted at the summit:

  • A single application that Allegro users can download and run for free, cAST (capSpire Administration Support Tool) enables users a new level of insight into the full spectrum of their Allegro system leveraging the power of Allegro Web Services. cAST provides advanced diagnostics capabilities, enhances day-to-day use of Allegro, enables proactive identification of issues, identifies errors between instances and implementations, and uncovers detailed information about any problems to assist the vendor and expedite resolution.
  • The Dependency Analyzer eliminates uncertainty over whether updates to Allegro code will impact existing environments, including customizations and functionality. This powerful comparison tool enables users to proactively identify and catalogue all changes between code versions and study how those changes affect underlying source code. Users can obtain details such as class name, database table name, view name, and more. Then users can click into a relationship grid to view the entire source file with the target code highlighted and quickly understand the context of each relationship. This tool helps to avoid substantial testing efforts and save hundreds of hours in trial-and-error investigations, and allows for a more seamless, efficient upgrade.
