ARMONK, N.Y. and EHNINGEN, Germany, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that it has been selected by E.ON Metering to operate its Smart Metering IT infrastructure in a private cloud.

E.ON Metering, a company of E.ON, one of the world's largest investor-owned power and gas companies, will use IBM's Intelligent Energy Service Enablement Platform (IESEP) to improve the deployment and management of smart meters, simplify the integration of renewables, and other innovative services, while at the same time maintaining a high level of customer service.

Under this agreement E.ON will migrate and host the infrastructure in a private cloud using IBM SmartCloud, at one of IBM's Data Centers in Germany. At the same time, the new platform will be upgraded with new analytics and management tools based on IBM Software that will allow E.ON to provide higher-value-added data services for customers. For example, customers will have the ability to view their usage profiles for information about time-of-use-rates and changes in use patterns that can be compared with historical data.

Additionally, the platform's scalability and low start-up and operation costs will provide the flexibility for future growth. Besides the first target markets Germany, Austria and Switzerland, both companies aim to further market the new platform jointly in other international markets.

"We now have the tools to make much more comprehensive use of the technical possibilities that smart metering opens up both for the customers and for the business," said Robert Pflugl, Managing Director, E.ON Metering GmbH. "The two companies are combining their competencies in energy management and data processing in order to offer the best solutions to the future challenges of the energy turnaround."
