This IDC Energy Insights Perspective highlights that the utilities industry is being challenged today is an understatement. Oracle Utilities wants to help utilities navigate today's environment by addressing the utility need for speed, visibility, and agility. The message has been consistent over the years — Oracle has a fully integrated and complete suite of business applications for the utility. The theme for utilities from this year's Oracle OpenWorld (OOW) was enabling innovation and the main message was that the company has made investments in reducing the cost of supporting applications and getting ready for cloud while still investing in core utility applications.
