Red Clay Consulting Successfully Implements Oracle Utilities MDM Version 2.1 at Ameren Corporation

St. Louis, MO – April 30, 2015 – Atlanta-based Red Clay Consulting announced today that the Ameren Corporation, parent holding company to Ameren Illinois and Ameren Missouri, has successfully installed Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management (MDM) 2.1 for both their electric and gas settlement systems customers.

This implementation provided validated usage transaction data to two unique downstream Oracle Utilities settlement systems to accommodate both gas and electric customers. To best manage this process, the implementation was done in two phases in order for the Oracle Utilities MDM 2.1 deployments to coincide with the deployment timeframe of Ameren’s downstream gas settlement system and the upgrade of the electric settlement system. The gas implementation took place in July 2014, followed by the electric settlement system in October 2014.

Ameren Corporation has enhanced their electric settlement systems with Oracle Utilities MDM 2.1, providing a comprehensive settlement data system that is the central data source for all of Ameren’s raw measurement data used for settlement and analysis. As the single repository for measurement data, this framework will enable Ameren to leverage this configuration and expand their AMI capabilities at a lower cost. The improvements provided to Ameren Corporation by the utilization of Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management 2.1 for both gas and electric customers, as well as the precise design provided for these core features and functionality, will enable Ameren to enhance its settlement capabilities and leverage additional requirements in the future.
