Oracle Empowers Utilities to Derive Powerful Business Insights

New Oracle Utilities Data Model Accelerates Data Warehousing and Big Data Deployments to Speed Actionable Intelligence

Redwood Shores, Calif. – October 31, 2013

News Summary

Utilities accumulate a wealth of data that can be used to optimize capital investments, improve customer satisfaction, maintain and enhance reliability and safety, and drive operational efficiencies. Yet Oracle’s recent study of senior utility executives showed that only 20 percent of utilities say they are doing an excellent job in putting timely information into the hands of people who need it most. To help utilities become more information-driven, Oracle has released Oracle Utilities Data Model, a new industry-specific data warehousing and Big Data solution.

    Oracle today announced Oracle Utilities Data Model, a pre-built standards-based data warehouse schema and set of business intelligence dashboards designed to help utilities analyze growing smart grid and other enterprise data and quickly drive new business intelligence and discovery.

    With Oracle Utilities Data Model, utilities can quickly implement an enterprise data warehouse platform that is both adaptable and extendable for cross-domain reporting, analytics and data mining.

    Pre-built and integrated with Oracle Data Warehousing, Oracle Business Intelligence, and Oracle Engineered Systems, Oracle Utilities Data Model is optimized to help utilities become more information-driven.
