Ministry of Water and Electricity (MoWE) of Saudi Arabia Implements Oracle Utilities Customer Care and Billing to Improve Service Delivery

The need for utility companies is to adapt and adopt digital transformation and also learn to move at a faster pace. This will also allow utility companies to align and synchronize their operations to optimize returns on innovation and investments. The need for digitalization is further augmented due to tighter regulations governing customer service, climate change and emissions which are driving utilities to transform and address the challenges and meet the expectations of stakeholders. As a result, the utility company of tomorrow must significantly impact the lives of its consumers while addressing business challenges, adopting technology evolution and adhering social and environmental concerns.
