Oracle Utilities Receives Highest Rating Given in MarketScope for Outage Management Systems Report
REDWOOD SHORES, CA, Jun 26, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) --
Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)
-- Gartner, Inc. has rated Oracle Utilities "Strong Positive" for Outage
Management Systems for the third consecutive year in the report
"MarketScope for Outage Management Systems (OMS)." (1) Oracle is the
only vendor to consistently maintain this "strong positive" rating
since 2011. Prior to that, Oracle was named a Leader in the Magic
Quadrant for Outage Management Systems report from 2007 through 2010.
-- Gartner states: "The utility industry is increasingly focused on the
development of the future energy delivery infrastructure -- the smart
grid. Among other benefits, a smarter grid will improve network
resilience via advanced control functions, supporting network
self-healing and event avoidance. This focus has fueled buyer interest
in solutions that can extend and enhance the OMS environment with
smart grid technology. Therefore, OMSs are evolving beyond an
emergency response decision support system into a component of an
integrated smart grid management platform."

-- "Delivering rich functionality through a pre-integrated, commercial
off-the-shelf system and a proven system-integrator partner base,
Oracle's full outage management capabilities continue to support
critical operations at leading utilities worldwide," said Rodger
Smith, senior vice president and general manager for Oracle Utilities.
"As evidenced by our utility customers during Superstorm Sandy,
Oracle's operational integrity consistently helps utilities deliver
reliable services and information to customers in times of dire need."
