Origin Consulting, LLC. Completes the First North America Production Implementation of Oracle Utilities Customer Self Service at Green Mountain Power

BELLSOUTH, GA--(Marketwired - April 30, 2013) - Atlanta-based Origin Consulting, LLC (Origin) and Green Mountain Power (GMP) announced today that they have completed the first production implementation of Oracle Utilities Customer Self Service (OUCSS) application in North America. The first phase of this successful rollout included functionality available in GMP's legacy web site, with the addition of interval data presentment to customers that have GMP Smart Power meters. The implementation went into production virtually seamlessly, enabling a smooth transition for customers to the new web site. GMP's customer service representatives are redirecting their customers to the website where they have 24/7 access to the latest usage, billing, and other account information. GMP will continue to leverage OUCSS to provide their customers more information and functionality through the self-service channel.

Oracle Utilities Customer Self Service offers an attractive alternative to custom solutions. This offering is a unified portal platform that is pre-integrated with Oracle Utilities applications, including Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing, Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management, and Oracle Utilities Network Management System. The solution is also designed to accommodate data from legacy and non-Oracle products, using Web Services.

"Oracle Utilities Customer Self Service is a key component of Green Mountain Power's vision to provide outstanding service to our customers. Origin's committed consulting team helped us realize this vision by delivering within the defined budget," says Todd LaMothe, Development Manager, Green Mountain Power.

With the completion of the Oracle Utilities Customer Self Service Phase 1, GMP has a solid Self-Service foundation. Customer satisfaction can be improved by delivering account and usage data directly to the customers.

"The versatile tools, pre-built tasks flows and extendable application will enable GMP to be even more creative in their service offerings. Origin Consulting is looking forward to using more of these products and all the outstanding functionality they provide," says Pam Glanvill, President, Origin Consulting, LLC.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
