Utilities from around the world provide energy usage data from tens of millions of customers to Oracle UGBU which we then analyze and aggregate into key insights using the latest software technologies. The Data Platform group owns these critical data sets and the processes by which the data are acquired, and maintains the supporting clusters. We build the highly available services that serve those data with low-latency.
