Oracle has announced that Tucson Electric Power Company has implemented its Service-Oriented Architecture suite, a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, to integrate its various business applications and establish new services with reusable web services.
Using Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) suite, Tucson Electric Power Company expects to implement and integrate new applications 36% faster and reduce time spent on supporting and maintaining the system by 50%.
Oracle SOA suite helps eliminate customized application integration requirements, establishing a framework of reusable components that allow Tucson Electric Power Company to simplify integration between additional work management applications and other back office systems - eliminating the requirement for custom, 'hard wired' interfaces.
This integration allowed the organization to streamline work requests sent from Storms to Oracle Projects and to track project costs more efficiently. The Storms application enables the organization to assign field crews to restore electricity service and make repairs caused by storm damage.
Quentin Grady, senior vice president and general manager of utilities at Oracle, said: "Oracle SOA suite delivers value by empowering organizations to create new applications rapidly and establish a flexible application infrastructure that eliminates costly and time-intensive integration requirements."
