Supporting Quotes

--  "Our upgrade of the Oracle Utilities Network Management System enabled
    us to reduce the number of computer screens and outside systems that
    control center personnel must navigate to gather information and
    monitor current system status, outage notification, and outage
    detection. Another major benefit is the ability to use the system to
    'ping' meters to verify outage orders. As a result of this new
    capability, the distribution control center in Minnesota was able to
    avoid sending trucks to approximately 934 invalid outage calls last
    summer. This translates to saving to the company approximately 1,400
    work hours. Over time, this number should increase as operators and
    dispatchers gain experience with the upgraded system," said David
    Kulhanek, Business Technology Executive - Transmission &
    Distribution, Xcel Energy.
--  "The Oracle Utilities Network Management System allows us to support
    our evolving processes for outage restoration. The latest release has
    system interfaces that bring data from new technologies into the NMS
    so we can better visualize the outages and also have a more flexible
    user interface that makes working with the event data that much more
exible. We have relied on Oracle Utilities Network Management System
    for many years as a critical system to manage our restoration efforts
    and are confident that the system will continue to advance as our
    needs expand," said Brian Chabot, Manager, Business Systems, Pepco
--  "Oracle provides the complete solution suite that helps utilities meet
    today's pressures. Oracle Utilities Network Management System provides
    utilities with the security, flexibility and advanced capabilities
    required to manage the distribution grid of the future. We look
    forward to continuing to help our utility customers innovate and
    thrive in 2013 and beyond," said Rodger Smith, senior vice president
