The spreading of Internet accesses and latest developments of Web technologies simplified the process of building architectures capable of collecting and sharing data. On the other side, a massive use of smart devices helped increasing the overall quality of the monitored process. This report illustrates how sensed raw data collected over an electrical plant by a smart device have been turned into a market valuable knowledge. Implementing and extending the Back-end Data Sharing Pattern, the proposed architecture underlines some key factors to be appointed when designing this kind of infrastructures and how they have been implemented in a real world use case.
