SAN DIEGO, CA and ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/13 -- DistribuTECH 2013 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)
- Atlanta-based Red Clay Consulting and Oracle announced today that they have completed implementation of Red Clay's SmartGridONE (SG1) offering powered by Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management at Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC -- The Reliable One). Built upon Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management 2.0, Red Clay Consulting's SG1 is a flexible, affordable and complete meter-to-cash MDM solution that helps utilities lower their total cost of ownership, reduce implementation risk and accelerate their MDM deployment. Red Clay Consulting's SG1 supports meter data management needs while providing a foundation for the future. SG1 comes standard with pre-configured and pre-tuned software, hardware and database.
- With Red Clay's SG1 powered by Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management, OUC went live in less than six months. The meter data management system will enable daily meter reads that increase billing accuracy to help improve customer billing and revenue protection. With the completion of the Phase 1 of Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management, OUC has a solid foundation that is expected to lead to improved business processes.
- Red Clay's focus within Oracle Utilities solutions is on Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management (MDM), Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway (SGG), Oracle Utilities Mobile Workforce Management (MWM), Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management (ODM), Oracle Utilities Billing Component, and Oracle Utilities Load Profiling and Settlement.
- "Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management was the most complete and cost effective solution for our business needs, and with Red Clay's unique appliance approach and proven track record of Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management implementations, it was an ideal pairing," says Chip Merriam, OUC Vice President, Legislative & Regulatory Compliance.
- "OUC can quickly and accurately get 95 to 97 percent of their reads on the first day of the bill window, while at the same time eliminating the manual collection of no-reads," says Beth Kearns, Managing Partner at Red Clay Consulting.
- "Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management provides Orlando Utilities Commission with the flexibility needed to configure and streamline their IT systems, while consolidating vast amounts of data into one system," said Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Utilities. "This successful implementation further exemplifies Oracle Utilities' commitment to helping utilities achieve their smart grid initiatives, now and in the future."

But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
