“Smart grid deployments are creating exponentially more data for utilities and giving them access to information they have never had before.

Utilities can benefit from establishing enterprise information strategies, and investing in the systems and people needed to make better business decisions,” said Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Utilities.
