Industrial cloud suite updates have been announced by GE Digital designed to help build complete asset strategies.

GE has unveiled expansions to its suite of edge-to-cloud technologies and industrial applications, designed to help its customers build a complete asset strategy. These additions to the GE Digital portfolio complement software applications that drive industrial productivity and extend these benefits through Predix, the application development platform for the Industrial Internet.

“Industrials that unlock data to master asset productivity will be positioned to lead,” said Bill Ruh, Chief Digital Officer of GE and CEO of GE Digital. “To power digital transformation, industrial organizations must understand every stage of the asset lifecycle. The company that designs, builds, operates, maintains and services industrial assets is best equipped to help others with their Industrial IoT journeys. And only GE offers the combination of industrial apps, underpinned by an industrial platform, to ultimately drive customer outcomes.”

Key features in the edge-to-cloud technologies and industrial applications include:

Edge-to-Cloud Intelligence on Any Industrial Asset:

To help customers accelerate their edge strategies and make any asset an intelligent asset, GE Digital is expanding its Predix Edge capabilities to help run analytics as close to the source of data as possible. Predix Edge gives customers with limited connectivity, latency limitations, regulatory or other constraints a way to deploy applications closer to the originating data - or at the edge.

Predix Platform on Microsoft Azure:

GE Digital and Microsoft are bringing together the advanced industrial platform services of Predix with the flexible, enterprise-proven services of Microsoft Azure. Available in North America starting Q4 2017 and expanding globally in 2018, this partnership extends the accessibility of Predix to Microsoft’s global cloud footprint, including data sovereignty, hybrid capabilities and advanced developer and data services, enabling customers around the world to capture intelligence from their industrial assets.

Advanced Applications to Make the Industrial Internet More Actionable

GE Digital introduced a complementary application that improves the operational performance of assets - like pumps, valves and heat exchangers - and drives a comprehensive asset management strategy.

Enhanced Field Service Management Solutions

ServiceMax from GE Digital announced several enhancements to its FSM suite - enabling even greater efficiencies and bringing advanced analytics to service operations.

Advanced App and Digital Twin Solutions

GE Digital also introduced Predix Studio to help companies build and scale their own industrial applications and extend its Asset Performance Management (APM) suite, Available in Q1 2018, Predix Studio simplifies the development process by giving customers the ability to extend applications and empower industrial subject matters experts - or citizen developers - to build apps in a low-code, high-productivity environment.
