Aspect Enterprise Solutions (AES), a leading provider of software as a service (SaaS) trading and risk management solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the niche player quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Energy Trading and Risk Management Platforms” evaluation report published March 24, 2010 by Keith Harrison and David Furlonger. AES provides trading and risk solutions for organizations trading oil and related products. The company’s SaaS delivery model means user organizations need no software, no hardware and no IT expertise.

Welcoming the report’s findings AES chief executive officer Steve Hughes believes the positioning comes as a fitting conclusion to the company’s most successful year yet.
