The company will also lead a panel discussion on the latest developments within the Dodd-Frank Act and its direct impact on operation and technology.

    ETOT 2012 is designed for the energy trading industry to discover the latest practices and challenges impacting the sector. Attendees will learn about relevant case studies and hear panel discussions and presentations, all geared towards understanding the changing regulatory climate and the best processes to implement in order to stay ahead. Actiance's Director of Product Marketing, Norv Leong, will join a discussion of the Dodd-Frank Act, dissecting the meaning and its regulatory impact on energy organizations.

    At the booth, Actiance representatives will be on hand to discuss how its compliance and security platform, Vantage, can help the energy industry comply with legal and regulatory demands. Vantage, the de facto platform for security, policy control and compliance for unified communication and collaboration, supports a variety of platforms, including Microsoft Lync and SharePoint, IBM Sametime and Connections, Jive, Cisco Unified Presence, and instant messaging platforms such as ICE Chat and Yahoo!
