Tom Siebel, Tech Pioneer, Bets Big On The Internet Of Things
If you’re into technology, you’ve probably heard of Tom Siebel.
He first rose to prominence as an executive at business software giant Oracle before setting off on his own to start Siebel Systems, a customer relationship management software, or CRM, company. In 2006 he sold his eponymous company to his former employer for $5.85 billion and started a new one, C3 Energy, focused on data analytics software for the so-called smart grid.
But “clean tech” has fallen out of favor. What’s in? The so-called Internet of things.
