C3 IoT, led by enterprise software veteran Thomas Siebel, helps large firms make sense out of mountains of data

Internet of Things platform supplier C3 IoT this week announced two sweeping contracts, one with ENGIE, a huge energy company in Europe, the other with the U.S. Department of State, adding to the eight-year-old company’s roster of big IoT wins.

The Department of State is said to have signed a multi-year deal valued up to $25 million to use C3 IoT’s enterprise application development platform for a global energy management initiative.  C3 IoT will enable the Department of State to “gain dynamic, real-time operational insights and efficiencies by analyzing … data from enterprise and extra-prise systems and sensors across 22,000+ Department facilities in 190+ countries,” C3 IoT says.

ENGIE, which is a 70 billion euro, French-based, multinational energy company, plans to use the C3 IoT platform as one of the main planks in a digital transformation initiative, says Yves Le Gelard, who is CIO of the company but was also recently made Chief Digital Officer (“I take my tie off for that role,” he laughs). 

These two large contracts add to the impressive IoT accounts C3 IoT has won to date.  “We already have 20 large scale deployments worldwide,” says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Thomas Siebel, formerly CEO of $2B Siebel Systems, which merged with Oracle in 2006.
