As utilities continue to enhance their customer experience with proactive communication, flexible programs, variable pricing and use of social media, Oracle continues to innovate solutions for utility industry business needs.

Oracle Utilities is a leader in the industry with new releases of its world class customer information system, customer self-service solution, smart grid gateway solution and meter data management system, the only fully integrated meter-to-cash process for today’s utilities.

Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management 2.1 helps utilities reduce implementation time with new capabilities for the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) transition process, and enhanced service order generation based on detection of conditions that require further investigation.

Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing 2.4 enables utilities to offer integrated program management, more net energy metering options and prepaid metering for AMI, virtually eliminating the need to integrate to other systems. Together with the integration and interoperability with Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management, Oracle offers utilities a solution to the issues typically faced when integrating Customer Information System (CIS) and Meter Data Management (MDM) systems.

These latest product announcements come on the heels of several earlier Oracle Utilities product launches including:
• Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management 2.0, which helps utilities manage smart grid asset change, configuration and inventory.
• AMI vendor adapters (including Landis+Gyr, Echelon, Silver Spring Networks, Sensus and Itron OpenWay) for Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway 2.0, which provide utilities with a simplified link between smart grid devices and the applications that use their data.
• Oracle Utilities Customer Self Service 2.0.1, a Web self-service platform that helps utilities give their customers online options for paying bills, requesting service, viewing outage information and reviewing usage data including Green Button functionality.

In addition, Oracle’s recent acquisition of DataRaker offers a cloud-based analytics platform that enables electric, gas and water utilities the ability to leverage vast amounts of data to drive operational efficiency and improve the customer experience.

Oracle continues to work with leading utilities on this industry transformation such as Avista Utilities, Alliant Energy, Fayetteville Public Works Commission, Greenville Utilities Commission, Lee County Electric Cooperative, and South Jersey Gas. Some of the utilities that have gone live and updated their fully integrated customer platforms in the past year include AboitizPower, Aetra Air Jakarta, Green Mountain Power and Middlesex Water.
