• In order to meet the deadline for delivery of a Confirmations Service to customer organisations, the solution had to be available in fixed short timescales. A prime criterion was, therefore, the ability to deliver in these timescales.
  • The solution required deep expertise in trading systems architecture and the ability to draw on experience providing similar solutions in a trading environment.

The Solution

  • Trayport’s preferred development approach was agile and test-driven. The solution development approach had, therefore, to be based on the same elements. After looking at resource availability, it was decided that the only way to meet the customer go-live date was to source the solution on a fixed-bid basis from a specialist third party.
  • Digiterre submitted a detailed proposal for developing the Confirmation Service. During the proposal review, it was clear that there was significant common ground, in the preferred technology environment and development approach.
  • Based on successful project delivery over a number of years, Digiterre followed an agile process based on the Scrum method, both parties’ preferred method of working on projects of this type.
  • This had the benefit of providing Trayport with the greatest degree of control over the fulfilment of their requirements, especially given the short project duration.

Key Benefits

  • The effective and rapid engagement by Digiterre with Trayport made possible a rapid start to the development phase. This helped deliver the project on time and within budget, and ensured Trayport’s customer service commitments were honoured.
  • Using a mixed Digiterre and Trayport development and testing team enabled a seamless handover to the core Trayport development team for future enhancement of the Confirmations Service.
  • The Confirmation Service is now marketed as Trayport Complete℠ Confirm, designed to improve efficiencies, optimise workflows, reduce the operational risk and the processing costs associated with energy trading.
  • Complete Confirm is designed to be seamlessly integrated with Trayport®’s Trading Gateway℠ product; the solution provides real-time, 3-way confirmations (between the inter-dealer broker and the 2 trader counter-parties) of a trade.
