In this track explore how Oracle Utilities is harnessing an enterprise-class grid management platform approach with analytics and distributed energy resource–enabled advanced distribution management system capabilities to permanently extend operations beyond traditional constraints.
Welcome to the 2020 Oracle Utilities Customer Edge Conference! In our day one opening session, we’re excited to show you some of the coolest new features and solutions across our portfolio. We’ll take you on a journey through some of the most common challenges utilities around the world are facing – journeys you’re sure to recognize – and showcase how we are continuing to deliver solutions to tackle these challenges.
With the grid evolving at such a rapid pace, it is critical to set an operational foundation today that allows utilities to adapt to an uncertain future. Join this session to hear highlights of the trends and challenges Oracle is tracking, and how it is preparing for the truly customer-centric network of tomorrow.
Join this session to hear highlights of what's new with Oracle Utilities Network Management System and preview the roadmap supporting utilities amid unprecedented change.
Self-healing grid. Autonomous decision-making. These aren't just buzzwords anymore, these are the future of network management. Join this session to hear about the latest features making this future a reality, including updates in FLISR switching, automatic closed-loop optimization, and more.
While topics such as changing customer demand and energy efficiency dominate the headlines, it is the impact that digital and grid edge services have on energy delivery and the business model that is the most transformational aspect of the energy industry. We will cover the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) survey results on the most pressing issues facing industry, with links to policy, state regulations and individual programs. As we move to generation, we are joined by Gridliance to discuss FERC 1000 and the future of independent transmission. Finally, we will discuss digital transformation and how expectations and assumptions, even in well-planned initiatives, can be the big difference in customer engagement.
The water industry is challenged with leaks, backflow testing, technology advancements, and customer facing issues. Join other water utilities as we explore these challenges and more in this industry specific peer to peer round table event facilitated by Blue Heron Consulting.
Prior to the implementation of smart grid, visibility to the T&D system was limited. New sources of data such as AMI, reclosers, and distributed sensors at different points along the grid network increase visibility into the performance and health of the assets. The Grid T&D domain is designed to enable EU to leverage smart grid data as a strategic asset to generate actionable intelligence, drive innovation, improve operational efficiencies, and unlock new business insights. The Data Analytics Platform (DAP) will serve as the foundational tool for convergence and scalability of analytical solutions across Exelon Utilities. These analytic insights will drive sustained value by improving reliability and customer satisfaction, decreasing operational cost, and capturing new revenue opportunities.
Welcome reception for all attendees of the Oracle Utilities Customer Edge Conference
