## Proprietary Solutions Restrict and Complicate IoT Deployments
As each company looked to help customers take advantage of IoT technologies, all faced similar challenges. “Ultimately, all of our customers are trying to solve a problem,” explains David Ingham, director of software engineering at Red Hat. “They have physical things they want to connect to IT systems to increase efficiency and make smarter, real-time business decisions.”

Finally, customers were looking for a dedicated team to accompany them on their IoT journey. For individual technology companies, such as Red Hat, Eurotech, and Cloudera, this is where it became increasingly difficult to meet customer expectations. “We learned from experience that adopting IoT is not a one-time exercise,” recalls Ingham. “It’s a journey, a transformation that changes business models. And that’s why we started on the path of building a partner ecosystem and working very closely with other vendors who could give our customers what they needed.”

Because all three companies were already open source advocates, it was very natural for them to turn to the Eclipse Foundation and its Eclipse IoT community for support. Eclipse IoT is the leading open source community for IoT innovation. It offers more than three million lines of code across dozens of projects and is supported by more than 40 of the world’s leading IoT ecosystem players.

E.ON Connecting Energies is a business unit of E.ON and
an international provider of integrated energy solutions
for commercial and industrial customers as well as public-
sector institutions. E.ON is an international privately-
owned energy supplier and will in future be focusing
entirely on renewables, energy networks and customer
solutions. In the 2014 financial year, more than 58,000
employees based in many countries in Europe as well as
in Russia and North America generated sales of around
EUR 112 billion. Around 33 million customers purchase
gas and electricity from E.ON.

E.ON Connecting Energies is headquartered in Essen,

machine-to-machine communication and data analytics
to provide integrated energy solutions with tangible

E.ON Connecting Energies is technology agnostic and
vendor-independent, allowing them to leverage cutting-
edge technology to develop the best possible solution
for customers. Three years ago the company entered
the Virtual Power Plant (VPP) space, whereby they help
companies offer and monetize their capacities beyond
their own needs to contribute to the energy system.

E·ON Connecting Energies analyzes customer equipment
resources including on-site power generation units (e. g.
diesel generators, wind, PV , biomass, etc.) and transforms
their capacities into VPPs, meaning they can control
these sources by a central control system optimized to
access data 24/7. Eventually, they sell the excess energy
and capacity for the customer into the energy markets,
such as wholesale markets (e.g. spot, intraday), reserve
markets (primary, secondary, tertiary reserve) or local
optimisation (e.g. peak charge, avoidance, imbalance
optimisation).
