Reducing Risks and Accelerating MDM Solution Deployment
SmartGridONE (SG1) is Red Clay’s proven, flexible, and affordable meter-to-cash Smart Meter Data Management solution. Designed as a complete solution for small utilities, or as a Meter Data Management implementation accelerator for large utilities, SmartGridONE (SG1) was built by Red Clay Consulting on the Oracle Utilities Application Framework (OUAF).
The solution includes preset configurations of Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management (MDM) and Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway (SGG) enterprise applications to support and enable entire smart grid initiatives.
Oracle Utilities MDM provides a central data repository for enterprise data load, validation, aggregation, estimation, and editing and billing determinant calculation. Red Clay has fortified the application with pre-configured and pre-tuned software, hardware, and database for utilities who want:
- Reduce risk in implementation
- A lower-cost solution
- Accelerated deployment
“Because SG1’s MDM configurations have been fully tested and require little to no customization, the timeline to go-live is half that of typical MDM implementations,” says Michael Cocroft, managing partner at Red Clay Consulting.
Integration with Other Enterprise Applications
SmartGridONE integrates well with both Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing (CC&B) and other competitive (or homegrown) Customer Information Systems. Utilizing either Oracle Utilities Smart Grid Gateway productized Vendor Adapters (L+G, MV-90, Itron OpenWay, Sensus, Echelon, Silver Spring Networks, etc.), Red Clay designed Smart Grid Gateway Adapters (Elster EAMS, EDMI, LSE, HHF), or a custom-built adapter using the Oracle Utilities Adapter Development Kits, SG1 integrates with your AMI to meet your growing Smart Grid needs, such as interval data, register reads, meter events, and two-way device communications.
Whether you represent a smaller utility that would like to explore SG1 as an appliance or a larger organization that would like to explore the multiple benefits of an accelerator, Red Clay can work with your team to select the perfect balance of performance and cost for your MDM system.
