Utilities provider moves to the cloud


A client in the green energy generation space, needed to share data with the Energy Market Operator, but was finding this process cumbersome and the ability to make even small changes to the payload was difficult and time consuming. In addition, they found that their on-premise architecture was costly to maintain with many unsupported applications.


Through utility industry experience and technical knowledge, a Magia team worked with the client on a roadmap to move to Oracle PaaS, moving applications and services carefully over.


The client now operates on a modern, flexible, and secure cloud platform. Sharing data with the Energy Market Operator is now a robust process and easier to evolve. Overall, the cost of the PaaS platform is less than the on-premise one they moved from.

Frequently asked questions

Where do you provide your services?

We provide services globally. We work mostly in the English language.

Can I use both Oracle and Azure Clouds together?

Yes. Oracle’s partnership with Microsoft gives you more choices for multicloud architecture. By securely connecting Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Microsoft Azure over low-latency Oracle Interconnect for Microsoft Azure and simplifying access to enterprise-grade Oracle databases with Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure, customers can use the best capabilities of both clouds.

What if I want your help to implement but run the system myself?

If you want to take complete control over the solution, then we can provide advice on the skills you need, provide training, and hand it over to you. We can also assist in setting up your centre of excellence for certain product areas to ensure you are getting the most from your technology investment.

What about hosting?

We can advise on hosting or hosting on your behalf. We can provide a code maintenance service or be part of a blended team with your people. It’s up to you; we’re flexible. And if your approach changes, we can change ours.

Can you advise me on what cloud strategy we should adopt?

We will work with you to determine what’s appropriate for you now and in the future. For example, what’s the best technology combination for you? Is it speed of development, making maintenance more painless, creating efficiencies (perhaps you have an Azure tenancy), or making the best use of in-house resources and environments?

Can you integrate with other systems?

One of our key differentiators is our ability to build whatever integration you need to move your data around. We have skills in integration technologies and can pull data into systems and send it out to middleware or directly to other applications. We can integrate cloud, on premise, bespoke and legacy applications.
