C3 IoT said ENGIE, a global energy company, will use its cloud platform in a three-year plan to track and analyze its infrastructure. The deal comes after C3 IoT won a $25 million enterprise application contract from the U.S. Department of State.

ENGIE, based in Paris, is aiming to standardize its business units on C3 IoT. C3 IoT, which runs on top of Amazon Web Services, will offer a stack to analyze data from various sources inside and outside of ENGIE and scour telemetry data from millions of end points.

According to C3 IoT, ENGIE, which has electricity and natural gas facilities and trades energy, will use the company's applications to develop and deploy custom applications. ENGIE will also create a "digital factory" that will combine data scientists, developers and business analysts in one unit. C3 IoT will train this group to implement its platform.

As part of ENGIE's move to build its digital factory the company inked deals with Kony for mobile app development and Fjord, which is Accenture's design and innovation studio.

CEO Tom Siebel has said that C3 IoT was looking to land big deals. On Monday, C3 IoT landed the U.S. Department of State deal. The department will use the C3 IoT enterprise-wide contract to deploy energy management and analytics technology around the world.

In a nutshell, the U.S. Department of state is aiming to analyze sensors in more than 22,000 facilities in more than 190 countries to monitor infrastructure and manage energy consumption.

The U.S. Department of State will implement C3 IoT on AWS GovCloud.
