Green Mountain Power Partners with Origin Consulting to Implement Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management
Origin Consulting LLC, is pleased to announce the go-live of Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management at Green Mountain Power (GMP). Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management, selected in February 2014, provides inventory, asset and configuration management of smart grid devices. It provides operational knowledge of each device’s location, characteristics, firmware updates, configuration management, scheduled activities and audit compliance. GMP, a cutting-edge power utility serving 250,000 customers throughout Vermont, will use this product to initially manage current and voltage transformers, AMI meters, non-AMI meters and customer-leased heat pumps.
Green Mountain Power is pleased to utilize the capabilities that Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management provides and comments, “We strongly believe Oracle Utilities Operational Device Management has the capabilities to help us address several short- and long-term challenges that required a well-thought out approach. With 21 inventory stockrooms, we needed a better way to manage our meter inventory. Heat pump warrantee compliance required proof of annual inspections. As our smart devices expanded, we needed a better way to communicate with them and manage firmware. To ensure a successful implementation of a new solution, we carefully managed our initial scope, and chose Origin to provide guidance and get the job done.”
