CHESTER, England, December 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- As expected, E.ON announces 8.7 per cent price increase to customers' bills that takes effect 18th January 2013
- Fix energy bills now, says MoneySupermarket
Commenting on E.ON increasing the cost of gas and electricity by an average of 8.7 per cent, Clare Francis consumer finance expert at MoneySupermarket.com said: "It was only a matter of time before the last of the 'Big Six' announced an increase in energy prices. E.ON customers will see average rises of 8.7 per cent on average to gas and electricity prices (or £106.33 per year).
"Today's announcement was expected since E.ON promised not to hike the cost of standard residential prices in 2012. By announcing now, E.ON has given its customers the required 30 days notice of a rise in prices. This increase will come into effect on 18th January 2013.
"Price hikes from the energy companies are bad news for bill payers who are struggling with the cost of heating their homes. A recent MoneySupermarket poll showed a third of bill payers (35 per cent) would put extra clothes on at home when they are cold, rather than put the heating on, because they are worried about their energy bills, while another one in ten (nine per cent) would just put a heater on in one room.*
"Any customers languishing on a standard tariff should look for a better value deal now to avoid paying more for their energy than they need to at the most costly time of year. There is no guarantee we won't see another further price hikes this winter from the energy companies, so it is crucial you switch and fix to the best value deal to protect yourself from the impact of more price increases should they happen.
"Typical savings made by those moving from a standard deal to the best value fixed energy tariff on the market is around £248. Currently the recommended energy deal is EDF Energy Blue+ Price Promise June 2014, costing £1,181.94 a year on average for a typical household."

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.
