GE announced its Predix Cloud, a cloud-based service for industrial data and analytics on August 5. It seemed fitting to include a short discussion here since it is part of the digital revolution. GE says in its announcement, “The world’s first and only cloud solution designed specifically for industrial data and analytics, this platform-as-a service will capture and analyze the unique volume, velocity, and variety of machine data within a highly secure industrial-strength cloud environment.” Jeffrey Immelt, GE’s CEO, was quoted in the announcement saying, “A more digital manufacturing plant means more products are made faster.” Harel Kodesh, vice president and general manager of Predix at GE Software, says “A cloud built exclusively to capture and analyze machine data will make unforeseen problems and missed opportunities increasingly a complication of the past. “GE’s Predix Cloud will unlock an industrial app economy that delivers more value to machines, fleets, and factories,” continues Kodesh, “and enable a thriving developer community to collaborate and rapidly deploy industrial applications in a highly protected environment.”
