Webinar - TMC's Smart Grid and Oracle Present a Webinar

NORWALK, CT (March 30, 2012)Smart Grid, the leading website dedicated to the rapidly developing technologies that enable and harness Smart Grids, and Oracle (News - Alert), announced today a complimentary Webinar, “How Oracle Fusion Middleware Can Address Data Challenges OEMs & ISVs Face Designing and Deploying Smart Grid Solutions,” live on Tuesday, April 3, 2012 at 10:00 AM EDT/3:00 PM GMT. 

This complimentary webinar, sponsored by Oracle, will discusses how data from the edge, generated by meters, sensors, devices, substations and mobile data terminals to back-end systems can be handled with the aid of Oracle technologies to reap the most benefits for the consumer, environment and utilities themselves. Ultimately this session will highlight why Oracle Fusion Middleware is the smart grid choice for OEMs and systems integrators seeking a true end-to-end solution for utilities today. 

Utilities ISVs and OEMs today see tremendous challenges associated with the characteristics of the smart grid which require fundamental re-design of traditional systems in order to meet the smart grid needs. The “data tsunami” from meters, sensors, substations, and mobile data terminals presents unprecedented challenges to the data center.

Along with the data influx comes many opportunities for two-way communications and control, pulling the traditionally separate back office into the operational realm. Business leaders are demanding flexible and rapid response to changing requirements, putting severe pressures on enterprise application architectures that have long existed in separate and rigid silos.

Processes that used to complete in days and now happen in seconds and application platforms must support real-time automated decision making and ensure high levels of data quality and reliability. Specific, targeted analytics must be delivered across the enterprise, turning data into actionable information.

Drawing on Oracle’s strong position in the Utilities market, this webinar will review:

  • How Oracle sees the challenges of the Smart Grid
  • Traditional utility application solutions versus a Service-Oriented Architecture approach: platform architectural changes required to meet the demands of new business processes such as flexible demand response, smart distribution system and processes, and improved customer interactions.
  • The value of Oracle Fusion Middleware in smart grid solutions
  • As an information company, how our Fusion Middleware Technology can address the data challenges of the smart grid
  • Which Oracle products can underpin ISV and OEM smart grid solutions which enable you to integrate between legacy systems and new applications, deploy security technology, build robust systems to collect, read and analyze event data from sensor based devices, as well supporting distributed architectures for operational systems, asset management etc.
  • Use Oracle existing Fusion Middleware (as opposed to developing home-grown solutions) to address the data challenges and reduce total cost of ownership, enabling you as an OEM, ISV Systems Integrator of smart grid solutions to focus on your expertise in Utilities

Speakers include:
Peter Belknap, Business Integration product development, Oracle
Carl Ford (News - Alert), Community Developer 4GWE, Crossfire Media
