Oracle Integrates Oracle(R) Utilities Work and Asset Management With Oracle Application Server MapViewer

    REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., April 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --

    -- Oracle today announced that the latest release of Oracle(R) Utilities
       Work and Asset Management will allow utilities to take advantage of
       out-of-the-box integration with Oracle Application Server MapViewer, a
       component of Oracle Fusion Middleware.  Oracle Application Server
       MapViewer displays geospatial data from a number of sources, including
       Oracle Database, Oracle Spatial, utilities' GIS systems and external
       geospatial Web sites accessible through Web services.
    -- The integration will enable utilities to use the spatial query
       capabilities within Oracle Utilities Work and Asset Management to
       identify assets of interest, including those associated with work
       orders, and then "see" these assets in a map context with a single
       click.  This capability is important for utilities that manage
       widespread infrastructure assets like lines and piping.
    -- With assets and customer locations spatially defined and linked to the
       application, users can select assets in the map viewer, check
       preventative maintenance history and view various work activities.
       They can then easily schedule new work orders using familiar
       application capabilities -- allowing utilities to plan more effectively
       for asset repairs, enabling better customer service and reduced costs.
    -- Utilities can also leverage the integration to select and display
       multiple asset layers -- such as roads and underground utility
       infrastructure -- in a spatial context.  These capabilities help
       utilities improve asset analysis, work planning and execution.  For
       example, by being able to view all asset layers at once, a utility can
       determine if it needs to conduct maintenance on underground pipes as it
       is beginning a road maintenance project -- preventing it from needing
       to dig up the road twice in a short time period.
    -- Oracle Spatial is an enterprise spatial database widely used throughout
       the world.  It provides advanced geospatial data models and analyses to
       support applications in utilities, defense, homeland security, energy
       and business geographics.

       viewing capability to enable significant savings," said Quentin Grady,
