SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte announced today its expanded work with Oracle in the field of Utilities Advanced Analytics. As a leader in business transformation and technology services to the power and utilities sector, Deloitte will team with Oracle's Utilities Advanced Analytics to transform big data into compelling and actionable insights.
"Advanced analytic capabilities are fast becoming a critical enabler of business performance for our utility clients," says Tom Turco, principal and U.S. consulting sector leader for Power and Utilities, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "The combination of Deloitte's deep industry and information management experience, along with Oracle's powerful advanced analytics platform, can help utilities extract value from the information that is generated by recent smart metering and utility network infrastructure investments."
The extended strategic relationship can enable organizations to improve operational performance, enhance the customer experience and identify new opportunities for business revenue.
"Leading-edge utilities are investing in infrastructure to collect massive amounts of data from millions of distributed smart meters and sensors," says Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Utilities. "This big data requires a technology platform to process and analyze the information so that utilities can then leverage it into actionable business intelligence. With Deloitte and Oracle, utilities will be able to benefit from the analytics technology and experience they need to manage these big data challenges."
Oracle dedicates more than a thousand people to the development and delivery of highly differentiated mission critical applications specifically for the utilities industry. These technologists understand the different processes, performance objectives, and standards of utilities; and leverage this knowledge to design purpose-built analytic applications specifically for the needs of energy and water utilities.
Deloitte's power and utilities information management practice provides services across the broad information life cycle from enterprise data management to business intelligence, analytics and data warehousing.
