Software Provider Eases Use of Product by Offering Oracle-Based Application in Cloud
4-page Case Study posted: 04/03/2014

Redknee makes software that helps communications service providers deliver flexible billing options and great customer care experiences. When Redknee entered the utility market with its Oracle-based Redknee Utility Suite, it discovered that utilities desired a cloud-based rather than on-premises deployment model, to keep costs down while evaluating new services. When Microsoft and Oracle announced a partnership that made it easier to run Oracle software in Windows-based environments, Redknee was one of the first customers to move an Oracle-based application to Microsoft Azure. With the move, Redknee removed the cost and deployment-time barrier for customers who wish to use its product. It can also provide nearly limitless scalability to utilities as their data volumes grow. With a cloud-based offering, Redknee can also more easily deploy its product in any part of the world.

2 page Case Study posted: 11/13/2013

Being a plant operator at a 600-acre solar plant with more than 2,500 solar arrays is not an easy task. Checking out an alarm can require a three-kilometer walk.

It used Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2012 and Microsoft Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2012 to modernize the application with an efficient back-end and touch-enabled graphics, and found the latest Microsoft frameworks made the update fast and easy.
