CubeLogic, a market-leading enterprise SaaS business, provides risk management solutions for the energy, commodities, and financial markets, enabling monitoring and management of credit risk, market risk, and regulatory compliance exposures.
JERAGM was using an on-premises version of CubeLogic’s software, specifically version 5.2, which required significant maintenance and updates.

After thorough analysis and evaluation, JERAGM decided to migrate from on-premises hosting to SaaS hosting with CubeLogic’s latest version, V9.1. The decision was based on the need for a more
efficient and automated system that could provide real-time insights and enable proactive risk management. CubeLogic’s SaaS offering provided the scalability, flexibility, and ease of maintenance that JERAGM was looking for, along with the added advantage of removing personnel dependencies.
The migration process was executed smoothly with the support of CubeLogic’s expert team.

CubeLogic ensured that the migration process was completed within the agreed-upon timeline, with minimal disruptions to JERAGM’s operations.
