Several Utilities Choose Oracle ERP Solutions
Oracle announced that seven gas and electric utility companies have either recently purchased or deployed Oracle`s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solutions. Oracle also reported that its application software sales to the utility industry have increased by 35 percent in the past year. The company believes the enterprise software sales are being driven by the need for utility business applications to meet the new federally mandated deregulation requirements.
Unregulated utility companies that have either purchased or successfully implemented Oracle`s utility industry solution are Southern Company, Entergy Corp. and California Independent Operator Inc. Within the regulated sector of the utility industry, those choosing Oracle ERP solution include Baltimore Gas & Electric, First Energy Corp., IPALCO Enterprises and Carolina Power & Light. n
