Oracle Introduces Smart Grid Software

Oracle introduced software designed to support utilities as they migrate toward a complete smart grid build out that leverages advances in IT, communications technology and energy technology.

Oracle is working to address the two sides of the smart grid paradigm - allowing utilities to choose how to manage their operations and provide information to consumers to enable them to make better energy usage decisions.

The software unifies information from various segments of the Smart Grid network, including service delivery, customer interaction and consumer energy usage. Components of Oracle Fusion Middleware underlie these applications with processes that help integrate and manage large meter data batch files with Oracle Data Integrator or automate meter and sensor data filtering and front-end processing using Oracle Complex Event Processing.
