Xtensible Solutions LLC, a provider of enterprise integration and information management services for utilities, has announced that it will be working with Oracle to develop an Oracle Utility Data Model (OUDM) solution.

According to the companies, the OUDM will include a logical data model, pre-built physical data models, intra-model ETLs, connectors, reports, star schemas, OLAP cubes, and data mining models for selected utility core businesses. The solution will be developed using Xtensible Solutions' MD3i Framework and will be built on core Oracle technologies within Oracle Business Intelligence and Oracle Data Warehouse portfolios.

In addition, the solution will be based on the IEC Common Information Model and will draw on information definitions from other relevant standards approved by the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel.

"Oracle is delighted to be working with Xtensible Solutions to develop a utility standards-based analytics data model founded on proven Oracle technologies, which can enable utilities worldwide to drive value from smart grid investments,” says Brad Williams, vice president of Oracle Utilities’ industry strategy.
