(ZE), a leading provider of enterprise data management and analysis software is delighted to announce it has been awarded the Platts Pł Ignite Partner of the Year Award at the Platts Pł Executive Summit in Washington, D.C.

Platts and its partners play an important role in market development and transparency and have a responsibility to support healthy market development.
Aiman El-Ramly, Chief Strategy Officer at ZE, says, "We’ve always had a very close working relationship with Platts. Platts is a long-time data partner of ZE and is an integral part of our data offering within the award winning ZEMA Suite. We realize great value from our relationship and look forward to engaging in mutual pursuits long into the future."
Arif Razvi, Platts global head of channels and business direct, says, "The Pł Ignite Partner of the Year Award recognizes a partner for their innovative and collaborative market facing efforts and contributions to the bottom line. Platts sees ZE as an innovator and thought leader in the industry. We at Platts have high regard for the added value ZE’s ZEMA software brings to Platts content."
This year marks the second Pł event and the second time ZE was in attendance; the inaugural event was held last year in Montreal, QC, and by a balloted vote, the next event in 2014 was voted to take place in San Francisco, CA.
