Yarra Valley Water Selects Oracle Engineered Systems to Enhance its Business

By Daniel Brecht

Yarra Valley Water (YVW), a water and sewerage services provider in the Melbourne, Australia area, is looking to improve its business performance, enhance its customer service base and achieve a better return of investment (ROI); all these actions are not possible on their own so the company has chosen to implement two Oracle’s Engineered Systems. Both the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and the Oracle Exadata Database Machine have been selected by YVW to handle their application requirements, need for more storage space and workloads of cloud computing.

Usage of Oracles’ Engineered Systems was selected by Yarra Valley Water as a hardware and software systems solution for their company to reduce the cost and complexity of having to install, own and run an IT infrastructure. Both units run Oracle applications and technologies but they can support third-party applications. The Oracle Exalogic is put to use by YVW to run their business and customer management applications to carry out billing services; the Oracle Exadata is being used to not only run a high performance database that can store very large amounts of data, but for consolidation of mixed workloads and to reduce the amount of time it takes for re-indexing the data warehouse.

The Oracle Engineered Systems are being implemented to help improve Yarra Valley Water’s resources, information flow and empower the company with business intelligence (BI) for IT oriented data reporting and analytics; it has also has been put to use on the immediate business needs of an IT infrastructure that can deliver the necessary performance, reliability and scalability Yarra Valley Water was looking for to run multiple applications at once.

Oracle’s suite of products, for instance, has saved YVW lots of time and money when it comes to lowering the total cost of ownership and eliminating the management of a system overnight. Calling upon Oracle, Yarra Valley Water was allowed to achieve optimal operational efficiency and outstanding customer satisfaction. Moreover, their water and sewerage provider were able to increase business productivity and contributed to their cost savings too on implementations and upgrades. (This is all revealed in a YouTube video.)

Now, YVW has come to rely on a private cloud strategy around the Oracle platform to help manage its customer accounts. The deployment of Oracle Exalogic has provided a higher quality of service to the Yarra business--all the while providing better support for its enterprise and mission critical applications.  The company has even gone as far as having employed Oracle’s Middleware BI suite, which provides the integration between both systems, to improve the information flow and sustain the water and sewage services to its customers. The use of the Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g has, for instance, made corporate data easier for its users to access, produce and deliver ad-hoc analysis and interactive reports as needed.
