Value Creed and NTT DATA Announce Global Partnership Providing CTRM’s First Seamless Commodity and Market Expansion Solution

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Value Creed, the global leader in around-the-clock CTRM platform managed services, and NTT DATA, a digital business and IT services leader, today announced their partnership to provide CommoditySmartTM, an optimised commodity trading and risk management solution designed to facilitate market expansion and business process optimisation. The solution combines the power of NTT DATA’S technology expertise and physical presence in over 50 countries with Value Creed’s specialized RunSmart™ CTRM managed services. The partnership enables global organisations using CTRM platforms to accelerate expansion and proactively resolve technical and functional issues.

By their very nature, CTRM systems are business critical and highly complex, making the skills needed to manage, monitor, and maintain them difficult to source and deploy at the rate modern businesses demand,” noted Priyankar Datta, Managing Director of Value Creed. “Together with NTT DATA’s established physical footprint, diverse expertise, and product offerings, global firms can diversify faster.”

The global initiative launches with Value Creed and NTT DATA’s CommoditySmartTM Health Check, and CommoditySmartTM Robotic Process Automation analysis.

The global economy is expanding faster now than ever before in history. This relationship solves key barriers to growth and modernisation by accelerating access to new markets with a physical presence, technology enablement, and 24-hour service,” said Mark Slaughter, NTT DATA’s, Director of Commodity Management and Trading.

Value Creed’s RunSmart™ managed services will support NTT DATA’s global IT solutions developed over more than a half-century of experience and more than $2 billion investments in research and development.
