IoT Journal recaps three C3 announcements from the past two weeks, including a strategic alliance with AWS, a contract with the U.S. Department of State, and a strategic technology partnership with ENGIE, a global energy player. Excerpt:
C3, an IoT platform provider that earlier this year transitioned from serving only the energy industry to targeting its software to a wide range of companies, ranging from manufacturers to healthcare to financial services, has signed three different deals during the past two weeks. On June 16, it announced a strategic alliance with Amazon Web Services through which the C3 platform is now fully integrated with AWS IoT, a managed cloud service that connects devices to the cloud and provides sensor status and network health data. The C3 Platform uses AWS’s infrastructure and services to provision, manage and scale network components.
On June 20, C3 announced that the U.S. Department of State had awarded it a multi-year contract, of a value up to $25 million. Through the contract, C3 will provide the State Department its machine learning-based platform and software application suite, which the department will be able to use, in collaboration with networks of sensors, to automatically monitor, analyze, and support energy management systems across more than 22,000 State Department facilities in more than 190 countries.
Thirdly, on June 23, C3 announced that ENGIE, a Fortune 500 global energy company, has selected the C3 platform for a three-year minimum licensing deal, as part of ENGIE's new Digital Factory initiative in order to improve its operational performance and predictive maintenance across all of its 24 business units across the world. Through this program, ENGIE will also develop IoT-based programs to offer new products and services to its residential, business and industrial. ENGIE will use the C3 platform to power its IoT initiatives across its entire enterprise.
