Deloitte Consulting LLP, a management consulting firm, has expanded its work with Oracle, a software solutions provider. Deloitte says it will team with Oracle's Utilities Advanced Analytics to help transform big data into actionable insights.

According to Deloitte, the extended strategic relationship can enable organizations to improve operational performance, enhance customer experience and identify new opportunities for business revenue.

"Leading-edge utilities are investing in infrastructure to collect massive amounts of data from millions of distributed smart meters and sensors," says Rodger Smith, senior vice president and general manager of Oracle Utilities. "This big data requires a technology platform to process and analyze the information so that utilities can then leverage it into actionable business intelligence. With Deloitte and Oracle, utilities will be able to benefit from the analytics technology and experience they need to manage these big data challenges."
