Oracle Utilities Unveils the Perfect Customer Platform for the Modern Utility

Oracle Database News - Tue, 05/23/2017 - 13:00
Press Release Oracle Utilities Unveils the Perfect Customer Platform for the Modern Utility New customer to meter offering slashes tech costs by 25% and combines full power of customer information systems and meter data management systems

CS Week – Fort Worth, Texas—May 23, 2017

Oracle today unveiled Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter, a comprehensive meter-to-cash solution for today’s customer-first utility. Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter is the first offering to combine a market-leading customer information system (CIS) with a market-leading meter data management system (MDMS) into one solution with a single user interface.

Leveraging a single shared technology stack, this new solution can reduce utility costs due to faster implementation times, fewer integration points, and greater operational efficiencies. Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter delivers all of the benefits of a complete meter solution and a powerful customer platform, enabling utilities to more immediately and efficiently extract value from advanced metering infrastructure data to improve customer experience. With this streamlined approach, utilities can more easily design customer-centric, personalized programs and services, and prepare for the continued growth of smart meter programs. This holistic solution lays the groundwork for an evolving utility that wants to roll out smart meters in the future, without a major IT project.

“Utilities that leverage data to deliver an improved customer experience and more personalized programs - such as tailored time-of-use billing, or targeted home energy management advice - and do this with a single, integrated solution that combines customer and meter data, will be well poised to take advantage of the continued growth of smart meters and a smarter, more customer-centric grid”, according to Roberta Bigliani, Vice President, IDC Energy Insights.

With rising customer expectations and expanding smart grids, utilities are turning to modern, comprehensive technologies that deliver world-class customer engagement and operational efficiencies. Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter provides the platform to respond to evolving market dynamics and quickly implement new business requirements that span metering, rate analysis, billing, collections and customer programs. For example, as electric utilities face increasing distributed generation they may test new rate structures to better manage demand. With Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter, months of customization can be reduced to hours of configuration and utilities can easily test and implement the changes necessary to evolve. Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter consolidates advanced usage and billing capabilities for all meters – from scalar to interval—so utilities can manage those meters and their data in one place and derive greater value from grid investments.

“Oracle Utilities continues to partner with utilities around the globe to solve the issue of increasing complexity in this rapidly transforming industry. Simplifying meter-to-cash processes is an important part of those partnerships. This new solution does exactly that: it allows utilities to get up and running in a matter of months with a complete meter-to-cash solution and allows them to leverage that complete solution to streamline business processes and easily stay ahead of rapidly evolving business drivers impacting how they serve their customers,” said Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Utilities. 

Oracle Utilities Customer to Meter is redefining the utility customer platform by enabling utilities to:

  • Implement a full meter-to-cash solution in a matter of months
  • Leverage one technology stack and reduce technology costs
  • Achieve service excellence in every customer interaction with a single, intuitive user interface
  • Deliver a powerful, streamlined customer experience across every channel
  • Expand smart meter programs seamlessly and derive more value from AMI data

AS ONE Leverages Oracle Database Cloud to Publish Inventory Data to 4,300 Dealers in Real Time

Oracle Database News - Mon, 05/22/2017 - 13:00
Press Release AS ONE Leverages Oracle Database Cloud to Publish Inventory Data to 4,300 Dealers in Real Time Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service to help facilitate collaboration with expanding dealer network, supporting business growth and cost reduction

Redwood Shores, Calif.—May 22, 2017

Oracle today announced that AS ONE Corporation has released APIs using Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service, which provides Oracle's latest database, Oracle Database 12c Release 2, in the cloud. With these offerings, AS ONE will be able to provide its 4,300 dealerships with real-time information for over 300,000 inventory datasets. Prior to the investment in Oracle’s solutions, the data could only be published once a day.

AS ONE is a general trading company of scientific instruments, as well as industrial, physics and chemistry equipment, that provides hospital and nursing care products. It offers more than 1.4 million items of product information through catalogs and the company's Web shop—AXEL—and sells products through a delivery system that connects users with dealers and manufacturers. AS One had been looking for a mechanism for real-time external collaboration of over 300,000 inventory data sets with minimum load and processing time.

In July 2014, the company consolidated the database infrastructure—which originally existed in six disparate systems—into Oracle Exadata. According to AS ONE, the integration reduced the operation time by five times and improved the processing performance up to 20 times. Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service serves as an effective approach to access real-time data, and the Oracle Exadata and Oracle REST Data Services can easily develop REST API of Oracle Database to AS One’s 4,300 dealerships. Initially, AS One plans to leverage the solution for dealership data reference, and eventually expand to include functions such as delivery date reply and order reception. In addition, AS One will leverage chatbot technology to implement inventory inquiries via a business chat application.

System integration in this project was handled by Kanden System Solutions Co., Inc.

Additionally, AS One also implemented Oracle Data Visualization Service to visualize 1.4 million data points at the core of the system.

"AS ONE is a general trading company of catalogs and web based physics and chemistry equipment, founded in 1933. It provides creative value in advanced IT and logistics in the research, industry and medical fields. It opened an office in Shanghai, China in 2007 and opened its base in Santa Clara, California in 2017. In addition to catalogs, AS ONE’s sales channels expanded to e-commerce. As the number of products to be handled continues to increase, Oracle Database Exadata Express Cloud Service helped realize a mechanism to link inventory information to external sites with REST API in a short period of time. After publishing the API to dealers in the short term, data can be obtained automatically in real time,” said Mr. Tomohiro Fukuda, General Manager, IT Department, AS ONE Corporation

Customers Rapidly Adopting Oracle’s New Security Cloud Services

Oracle Database News - Fri, 05/12/2017 - 13:00
Press Release Customers Rapidly Adopting Oracle’s New Security Cloud Services Oracle’s Identity SOC portfolio helps enterprises modernize their security operations through context-aware detection and machine learning

Redwood Shores, Calif.—May 12, 2017

Oracle today announced that Oracle’s Identity-based, Security Operations Center (SOC) cloud services portfolio is experiencing exceptional growth, well surpassing 1 million users since its launch just six months ago. Oracle’s Identity SOC framework provides next-generation, integrated and intelligent security monitoring, threat detection, analytics and remediation across heterogeneous, hybrid clouds—powered by comprehensive identity context and enforcement. Edgile, Levi Strauss & Company, Marlette Funding, New Mexico Human Services Department, Nomis Solutions, Ooyala, Pragmatyxs and UBI Banca are among the many organizations around the world who have chosen Oracle’s comprehensive security cloud services portfolio to address complex security and management challenges across their hybrid IT environments. 

“As organizations continue their journey to the cloud, they are looking for an integrated, intelligent and comprehensive security platform that can manage, better secure and automate processes across hybrid IT environments,” said Rohit Gupta, group vice president, Cloud Security products at Oracle. “Customers agree that Oracle’s Identity SOC approach offers a critical controls framework to help enhance their security posture for applications and data—both in the cloud and the datacenter.”

“At Levi’s, my primary job is to protect the company brands and reduce our overall risk. From an IT perspective we have moved quickly into the cloud and have upgraded our SOC intelligence capability as a result. Levi’s invested in Oracle CASB Cloud Service to help give us visibility and better protection for our IaaS investments,” said Steve Zalewski, Chief Security Architect, Levi Strauss & Company.

“Ooyala’s cloud first posture meant that our security coverage just got broader, but I can’t afford to throw more bodies at the problem,” said Bill Billings, Chief Information Security Officer, Ooyala, a subsidiary of Telstra. “We needed a modern approach to security and to take advantage of new automation tools to allow me to ‘trust but verify’ what my vendors, service providers, and employees were doing in our cloud environment. With Oracle CASB Cloud Service, we now monitor user behavior across cloud properties as well as automatically detect configuration drift. This gives us consistent, detailed and clear visibility into user and application activity.”

“To support our company business toward multichannel, physical and digital transformation requires the best in class security levels,” said Fabio Gianotti, Chief Security Officer, UBI Banca. “We are enabling a hybrid SOC strategy based on cloud technologies and this approach must have innovative security solutions. We have invested in Oracle Security Cloud Services to enhance our ability to detect and respond not only to potential threats but also data leakage and to better meet our regulatory requirements.”

Context-Aware, Comprehensive SOC Solution Uses Machine Learning to Reduce Threats

The world’s first Identity SOC security framework, Oracle’s portfolio provides consistent security controls across cloud and on-premises environments that help organizations better detect and respond to advanced threats and more effectively predict paths of escalation. Oracle’s Identity SOC portfolio also unifies threat, user and operational data from traditionally separate sources and uses machine learning to empower these critical operation centers with an identity-centric, context-aware intelligence solution. This extensive portfolio of security features makes Oracle’s Identity SOC ideal for companies in a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, banking and finance, utilities, technology, retail, government and healthcare.

In addition, Oracle was recently recognized as a leader in Gartner’s February 2017 “Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration” report.

Oracle’s Identity SOC combines Oracle CASB Cloud Service, Oracle Identity Cloud Service, Oracle Security and Monitoring Analytics Cloud Service, and Oracle Configuration and Compliance Cloud Service into an integrated offering that delivers bi-directional controls, actionable intelligence and automated remediation built around machine learning with advanced analytics.
