News Facts

--  Oracle announced the availability of the latest release of Oracle
    Business Intelligence for Utilities, a key component of the growing
    family of analytics products, which helps utilities access, organize
    and use the data they need to monitor activities, make decisions and
    meet organizational goals. This solution helps utilities leverage and
    gain visibility into the vast data influx from smart meter and smart
    grid deployments.
--  Oracle delivers Oracle Utilities Business Intelligence for Utilities
    as a separate, pre-built solution which includes extractors and schema
    that pull data from specific Oracle Utilities production applications;
    dashboards that display information on maps; and graphical dashboards
    that analyze and summarize information in charts, stoplights, top 10
    lists, alerts and more.
--  Built on the comprehensive, industry-leading Oracle Business
    Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) platform, Oracle Business
    Intelligence for Utilities enables utilities to easily organize data
    from across the enterprise into reports, conduct ad hoc queries,
    in-depth analyses and deploy proactive notifications and alerts.
    Oracle Business Intelligence for Utilities delivers intelligence
    across maps, charts and mash-ups -- graphics that make it easy to
    absorb complex data and to grasp relationships (i.e. between an outage
    event and its location). Utilities can use these near real-time
    visuals to improve decision-making and to update customers and first
    responders more quickly on situations like outage restoration.
--  Oracle is also releasing Oracle Utilities Advanced Spatial Outage
    Analytics and Oracle Utilities Outage Analytics. Designed to work with
    Oracle Utilities Network Management System, these modules help
    utilities glean intelligence from their outage and distribution
    management systems.
--  Oracle Utilities plans to release several new business intelligence
    modules to support its other mission-critical applications over the
    next year.

--  "As utilities address the data management challenges associated with
    the smart grid the next big challenge will be turning the data into
    useful information that can enable improvements in decision making.
    Business analytics will be key to overcoming this challenge. Our
    research shows that utilities will invest in business analytics to
    increase reliability and operational awareness, increase worker
    productivity and optimize supply and demand side resources," said Rick
    Nicholson, president, IDC Energy Insights.
--  "Smart meters expand consumption data by a thousand percent or more,
    and many utilities are grappling with how they can manage and secure
    this volume of data and then use it effectively. This latest release
    of Oracle Business Intelligence for Utilities helps utilities meet
    those objectives by enabling them to access, organize and use the data
    they need to make more effective business decisions and provide more
    meaningful information to consumers," said Linda Jackman, group vice
    president of industry strategy, Oracle Utilities.
