C3: From Energy to IoT

By Kevin Prouty

C3 Energy has changed its name, and somewhat its focus. The new company is now called C3 IoT. While the name change might seem to indicate a significant change in the company, the functional focus is still on assembling and analyzing large amounts of operational and customer data into information and action. Most of the technology vendors, like Itron, GE, Schneider, Siemens, ABB, etc, have steered their offerings towards the Internet of things (IoT) market. For companies with existing analytical and Big Data offerings, a focus on IoT typically doesn’t require a large investment in new products. With IoT’s most valuable component being taking large amounts of data from diverse sources and deriving insight and direct actions, it makes sense for C3 to broaden its approach to the market and take it beyond energy markets.
