Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) Developments: Oracle Network Management, featuring built-in AI, continuously optimizes performance for a more resilient, efficient grid. Energy distribution is no longer a linear equation. As new energy and data sources continue to grow, utilities must take a more holistic approach to better understand and manage resources and engage increasingly active customers at the edge of the grid. The expanded Oracle Utilities Network Management System (NMS) addresses this market need with a new Distributed Energy Resource Management (DERM) module that enables utilities to monitor situations in real-time and proactively optimize their broader network in concert with this explosion of emerging energy resources, including solar, wind, electric vehicles and more.
By eliminating data and application silos and giving operators real-time visibility and control across all grid and pipeline assets in a single platform, operators can leverage the most comprehensive, real-time model to ensure a more resilient and efficient grid. For example, applying built-in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to a growing library of data, including Advanced Metering infrastructure (AMI), weather forecasts, SCADA and IoT device interaction, NMS enables grid operators to reliably predict future storms and alter supply and demand. Coupled with enhanced mobile tools, field crews can quickly garner the insights they need to limit the impact of outages for customers and speed restoration efforts.
