LINKING BUSINESS AND IT

At Danske Commodities, we are very focused on having a strong link between IT and the core business. Our Business Analysts and Project Managers help improve the business operations across DC and the current trend is clear: More markets, more systems, more people, more competitors.

Therefore, our Business Analysts play a key-role in translating business needs and specifying requirements to our developers. We cover all aspects of business analysis, tools development, IT architecture governance and project management, always aiming for the right solution in every project. As a result, we enhance DC's performance through our trading tools, streamlined processes, and efficient solution designs.

In addition, our strong project management skills are what allow us to deliver on the business needs and develop the right solutions outlined by our business analysts. Together, we optimise our project portfolio, constantly striving towards optimally allocating our resources to the projects and tasks that create the most value for DC.

Every day, we empower business users, data scientists and data analysts to discover, explore and analyse relevant data. Using modern services and tools, we ensure the best possible support for data-driven decision-making. We create value on both an operational and a strategic level – supporting the entire organisation with high-impact business intelligence solutions that leverage the entire BI tool stack. This includes building (and advising on) commercial opportunities, internal process optimisations and complex strategic initiatives. We work closely with the business, are curious, love data and are driven by a fast-paced, innovative and challenging environment.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT

The energy market evolves rapidly and so does our business. It is a complex and exciting domain. Agile methodologies, new technologies and innate domain knowledge are core for our ability to support the everchanging demands. We solve all the software development needs of Danske Commodities and work on value adding solutions to all parts of the business.

Danske Commodities' developers work to a very high standard and we constantly strive to better our craftsmanship and professionalism. The technology stack we work with is modern and continuously evolving. Distributed systems, microservices and asynchronous messaging is something we work with every day. In fact, it forms the basis for our ability to efficiently solve business needs. In combination with our continuous deployment setup it enables us to push changes to production everyday quickly and effortlessly.

OPERATIONS & SERVICES

IT Operations & Services is the engine room for our organisation’s technical commodities. We are the frontline of technical support and strive to provide services that run in a high availability setup with dual datacenters, ensuring that our company’s technical assets are running smoothly and always function at the highest possible level.
