C3 Provides IoT and AI Technologies to European Power Utility Enel

C3, an artificial intelligence (AI) software provider, has announced that Enel, a European power utility and a pioneer in smart-grid technology, is working with C3 as its strategic provider of big-data platforms and applications. Following a five-year collaboration, C3 is providing Enel with its C3 AI Suite, a range of AI and smart-grid analytics applications. The AI software integrates, aggregates and makes available unified data across ERP, HR, financial and operational systems, including SAP Hana, Oracle, Siemens, PostGreSQL, MongoDB and Cloudera.

"Enel and C3 have worked closely over the last five years to develop and deploy a large production-scale big data platform with AI and IoT applications," said Thomas M. Siebel, C3's CEO, in a prepared statement. "Enel's leadership, vision, and technical ability stands apart from many organizations in its embrace of AI and IoT, machine learning, and deep learning to transform operational processes and to provide business and social benefit." The C3 AI Suite allows Enel to provide developers, data scientists and business analysts with a common, secure view of its data, enabling them to collaborate and rapidly develop AI applications.

"Leveraging the power of AI and IoT is key for Enel to achieve its digital transformation, while allowing tremendous benefits to be delivered to its customers and shareholders," said Fabio Veronese, Enel's head of infrastructure, networks and digital hubs, in the prepared statement. "The collaboration with C3 is allowing us to harness innovative business processes enabled by big data analytics, unleashing a new era of operational efficiencies that strengthen our position as leader of the energy transition."

"C3's success with Enel is due to our experience in handling big data, enterprise-scale cloud computing, complex analytics, and, perhaps most critically, our integrated machine learning capabilities. This has been accomplished thanks to the effective collaboration with Enel. The results of this partnership fully enable Enel's aggregation of large volumes of real-time data and the development and execution of the thousands of algorithms needed to analyze those data and generate millions of predictions daily – all designed to increase the speed and accuracy of Enel's operational decision making," said Ed Abbo, C3's president and CTO, in the prepared statement. "We are establishing an advanced analytics infrastructure for Enel's digital future, while effectively leveraging Enel's prior investments in data infrastructure across the enterprise."
