Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management (MDM)

Meter Data Management (MDM) is being used by our company to store Meter and Device information, all of the combination meter device types and then the configuration types. MDM is also used to organize and store all of the data, reads, scalars, voltages, etc... MDM is used by a large portion of our company, mostly meter analytics groups, customer service groups, and IT. The business problems that MDM helps address and avoid is inconsistencies in usage, wrong readings and voltage usage. This in turn helps to avoid payment issues from customers, overpayments cause grief for both the customer and the company and MDM helps avoid these.
  • Data Management is crucial and MDM does this well
  • Device Configuration organization
  • Readings, usage, measurement units, service points, device management
  • Unfamiliar areas can be harder to use. If you know what your doing everyday your fine, but at times, I find myself in unfamiliar application aspects where some clearer tip buttons with better details could help the reason know what they need to do and guide them more clearly.
  • Error message codes could be more helpful, sometimes I get error messages, I look them up and there's not much information on it. Therefore, I am not sure how to fix the error.
  • Preventing errors for us always turns into money saved. Error flags that MDM throws help to prevent incorrect data entry, which almost always turns into money and time spent on sending somebody out into the field to ensure accurate data was given. So by not allowing for the possible errors, we save money.
  • No Negative Impacts.
CCB and MDM work hand in hand. MDM handles the device management area of running our business while CCB handles the actual customer side. Using a SOA tool, which provides the pathway/ connection between CCB and MDM, they are capable of updating each other with new or added information whether it be about the premise or the device at the premise.
I feel the overall support has been great, oracle employees are easy to work with, quick to answer, and very knowledgeable. If they don't have an answer for support you might need, they are eager to find the right path to get the solution.

Would you buy Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management (MDM) again?


Oracle Meter Data Management is very well suited for exactly what its called, Data Management. It stores our data accurately and historically in the database and does a good job of signaling errors if and when incorrect data, or what is perceived to be incorrect data is found. You can check on the history of meters and other devices, whether that be location, data, readings, voltage, usage, etc... I would say MDM would not be as well suited for the Customer Information data management. Although you can find some of this in MDM, it is not built for this type of usage.
