Oracle Utilities Testing is a complete solution developed for functional, business processes and performance tests on Oracle Utilities products.

Although testing represents a challenge for every Oracle Utilities project, based on our extensive experience in Utilities processes, we have developed this solution by creating predefined test cases that can be performed by personnel without a thorough knowledge of Oracle Utilities technology.

The solution is based on custom tools, Oracle tools and Microfocus tools all integrated and for which we have developed ad-hoc Oracle Utilities plugins containing pre-configured test cases.

The solution includes integration with Microfocus Diagnostic which has been configured to provide all reports and dashboards to measure the performance of the tested system.

In addition, we can provide our experts who support utility in planning, designing, executing, evaluating tests and preparing a recovery plan.

Testing Types

We have developed a plug-in for Oracle Utilities Testing Accelerator (OUTA) which comes with a complete set of preconfigured test scenarios for business process testing. In addition, our experts can develop ad hoc test scenarios.

OUTA performs the BP test on the OU product simulating the most common processes (for example: activating a service, requesting a remote meter reading, creating a new customer, etc.).

The Data Migration Tool uploads the initial data to the OU product. The data can be data tests or real company data.

At the end of each test, OUTA provides the results to the service company through dedicated dashboards and reports.

We have developed a plug-in for Microfocus LoadRunner that comes with a complete set of preconfigured test scenarios for testing user interface and web services. In addition, our experts can develop ad hoc test scenarios.

LoadRunner tests the performance on the OU product by simulating the load of operators who access the user interface to perform common operations (for example: view an invoice, estimate a reading, update customer data, etc.) or simulate the load of access to external systems through the web – services distributed in the middleware infrastructure (Oracle SOA and OSB).

The Data Migration Tool uploads the initial data to the OU product. The data can be data tests or real company data.

The OU product, through the diagnostic agents and LoadRunner through the native integration, sends the performance data acquired during the test to Microfocus Diagnostic. This data is stored in a database and provided to the service company through dedicated dashboards and reports.

A complete framework for performing functional and performance tests based on meter readings and events

The Smart Meter Simulator is configured to generate mass data for performance tests or ad hoc data for functional tests (for example Invalid data for validations, ad hoc data for usage calculation, etc.). The generated data is stored in a database to keep the simulator synchronized with the OU product.

The Data Migration Tool uploads the initial data to the OU product. The data can be testing data synchronized with the simulator data or real company data. In the case of real data already loaded into the OU product, the migration tool can be configured to load company data into the simulator.

The OU product, through the diagnostic agents, sends the performance data acquired during the test to Microfocus Diagnostic. This data are stored in a database and provided to the service company through dedicated dashboards and reports.

Our Services

Our consultants can be engaged to support the Utility on the overall process of testing.

Our experts can expand the Smart Meter Simulator , the Data Migration Tool, the LoadRunner plugin and the OUTA plugin to meet specific needs of the Utility deployment. (e.g.: tests for custom data, tests for customized Business Processes, etc.)

Our consultants can be engaged to support the Utility on preparing a remediation plan based on the test results.

Our experts can support the Utility on developing the corrections required by the remediation plan. We can provide as well consultant to follow the process of remediation and technical engineers to implement the corrections.
