4 Applications Across the Utility Value Chain Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics covers a breadth of functional areas and has been developed with a keen understanding of the underlying data structures and the business context it serves. The platform is delivered with a library of analytics for complex utility use cases. The following is an introduction to just a few of Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics pre-built applications: Grid operations One of the largest areas of opportunity for meter data usage is in grid operations. Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics aggregates interval meter data according to the different nodes of the distribution system hierarchy. This offers a new and unrivaled view of actual load distribution and allows for improved forecasting, planning and asset reliability. Challenge Leveraging multiple data sources to produce timely insights on system and device performance Deriving comprehensive end-to-end insight across entire distribution network Solution Analytics platform that reconciles transformer level data and smart meter data to monitor device performance and preemptively determine overload and predict failures Suite of tests that identify nontechnical line loss/theft Value More efficient monitoring of existing assets Deferral of unnecessary capital expenditures Increase customer satisfaction from reduced occurrence of momentaries and outages Revenue protection from effectively identifying theft leads 4

5 Meter and billing operations Meters are the cash register of the utility. Failure of these devices to function properly can have significant consequences for financial performance and customer service. Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics continuously monitors for signature patterns that indicate defective or improperly configured meters. 24/7 screening yields prioritized lists of meters for field investigation or replacement before the issues can impact operations or billing. By relying on this monitoring to protect against lost or inaccurate data, utilities are able to reduce meter operations costs while improving billing accuracy. Challenge Identifying meter malfunctions in an efficient and comprehensive manner Monitoring meter and network performance Maintaining meter data quality Solution Suite of tests that identify meter malfunctions with prioritization based on client needs and resources Meter and network performance reporting dashboards Intuitive user interface to access results and perform data discovery on meter population Value Improved operational efficiency for meter services group More accurate and comprehensive identification of meter operations Integrated continuous improvement in meter malfunction detection Efficient monitoring of meter device and network vendor contractual obligations 5

6 Demand Response and Energy Efficiency Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics combines meter usage data with third-party customer and facility data to create targeted customer segmentations that utilities can use to recruit appropriate customers for pricing and energy efficiency programs. Using interval meter data, the solution directly measures program impacts without the need for supplemental metering or sampling. This is useful for program implementation activities such as baseline calculation, incentive payment determination, program costeffectiveness evaluation, regulatory reporting, and measurement and verification. Challenge Finding efficient methods to derive insights for program design, marketing and evaluation Solution Custom reports to identify best candidates for program targeting and directional insights for design Ad hoc analytics to evaluate program performance and redesign Value Action oriented insights help optimize results for all phases of a program s life cycle 6

7 Safety Oracle has created multi-variate tests that focus on proactively discovering hazardous scenarios before they turn into critical issues. Oracle uses advanced statistical methods to minimize false positives, and flags premises for urgent field investigation. This service has enabled utilities to minimize the risk of highly publicized meter fires and to identify spikes in gas consumption and water usage. Reduced safety hazards in the community, lower write-offs from unaccounted usage, minimized unbilled commodity usage and cost avoidance from damages and legal fees are some the benefits of proactively identifying these types of safety hazards. Challenge Proactive monitoring of potential safety hazards related to commodity distribution services Reduce unbilled and unused commodity resources Solution Customized analytics to monitor hazardous scenarios such as gas leaks, water leaks and overheating meters Intuitive user interface to access potentially hazardous cases and review related data Value Improved community goodwill with a proactive rather than reactive approach to safety Reduced potential cost of damages Reduced write-offs from unaccounted commodity usage 7

8 Revenue Protection With sophisticated pattern detection capabilities, Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics automatically identifies meter tampering and service bypass conditions associated with energy or water theft. The investigation process is then tracked for each case and lost energy and revenue is estimated. After theft has been mitigated, post-mitigation usage is monitored to verify that the problem has been resolved. The solution enables utilities to effectively protect their investments while reducing the occurrence of costly on-site inspections. Challenge Identifying commodity theft and diversions in a cost effective and comprehensive way Keeping up with changing theft behaviors Creating documentation to support theft investigation and post identification reporting Solution Suite of tests that cover the full range of theft methodologies including foreign meter detection, periodic full and partial bypass, and theft (usage) on inactive accounts Continuous algorithm refinement to keep abreast of changing theft behaviors Value Reduced manual work in identifying theft leads Fewer false positive in theft leads Increased comprehensiveness in catching theft cases Identifying previously undiscovered theft scenarios 8

9 An Integrated Approach to Analytics that Adds Value Across the Enterprise Oracle offers a wide choice of mission critical utility applications and technologies to meet the demands of the world s leading utilities. Oracle has leveraged this deep understanding of core technologyenabled business processes to build a utility analytics platform that is unrivaled in its ability to leverage and enhance existing IT investments. Strategic integrations between utility operational applications such as customer information systems, work and asset management and distribution management provide a number of benefits. Two-way data sharing enriches the collective data sets and improves information quality, resolution and accuracy. As an example, Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics monitoring agents allows existing transactional systems to focus on their core functionality, while the analytics platform continually scans datasets for outlier conditions. These results are passed to operational systems or work queues for further processing. In addition, Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics also provides a simplified interface for ad-hoc analysis which in turn enhances the transparency and reach of the information residing in existing systems. Figure 2 below highlights some of these strategic integrations along with examples of the use cases enabled by the two-way sharing of analytic insights. Customer Information Billing Exceptions Management Customer Self Service Consumption Analysis Customer Profile Meter Data Management Revenue Protection Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics Mobile Workforce Management Service Order Investigation Network/Outage Management System Transformer Load Management Operational Device Management Firmware Compliance Device Failure Analysis Work and Asset Management Asset Optimization Fig.2: Core utility systems are extended and enhanced through the data and insights that are shared between Oracle Utilities Cloud Analytics and these existing applications. A robust integration architecture simplifies the exchange of information, whether on-premise or in the cloud. 9
