Oracle Utilities Introduce a Network Management Platform

Oracle utilities introduce network management platform that enables transition to users in customer-centric grid, it also allows real-time visibility. Oracle Corporation is one of the well known technology industry worldwide. Oracle has a variety of major products, but here is the list of some that’s for Oracle is famous database software and technology, cloud engineered systems and enterprise software solutions.

Oracle Corporation introduced Oracle Utilities Network Management System 2.3 on 2 February, 2017 at San Diego, California. This network management system is an expanded management system platform that enables various utilities to transit to the customer centric grid. It gives real-time transparency or visibility to users throughout all the grids and pipeline assets. It also minimizes the different complexities of the siloed data and applications.

Oracle Utilities are feeling major shifts in its way of operations that is because the rapid increasing in the DERs (Distributed Energy Resources) such as storage system, electric vehicles, solar PVs, and connected household devices for instance issues with aging water and gas pipelines.

New energy sources and increase monitoring of aging pipelines have produced more silos data, than ever before and that’s why it is an extremely challenging job to make the transition to customer-centric grid.

Rodger Smith, senior Vice President and general manager, Oracle Utilities, Said: “The most successful utilities will embrace the emergence of a customer-centric network, and have a strategic vision of how technology can support it; In the first transitional phase, utilities built billions of dollars of infrastructure over several decades. Then, with the advent of sensors and SCADA, we got better data and point-in-time visibility. Now we are in an age of predictive analytics, multiple new data streams from edge devices, and more complex real-time switching. We view our NMS solution as a platform that manages all aspects of the grid—from the customer’s living room to the utility back office.”

Oracle Network Management System 2.3 allows the utilities to aggregate the data from the many different network assets using the single interface with the detailed visibility for the any network operations. It is the first time that utilities have network and its asset data, two-way of distributed energy resource (DER) data, advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) data, Distribution Management System (DMS) data, and outage management system (OMS) data. These all the resources are coming in a single interface that helps to make more suitable and meaningful analysis and the decision.
