Predix.io – Dedicated Environment for Industrial Software Developers
Predix.io - Dedicated Environment for Industrial Software Developers : GE unveiled its dedicated environment for industrial developers, Predix.io, which will lay the foundation for the world’s first and largest marketplace for industrial applications. GE Predix, its developer portal and a select number of apps will be available in late 2015, increasing speed to market and enabling local development, global delivery and time-to-value for GE and its customers. GE will be converging all software offerings on Predix and commercializing Predix-based operations to drive enterprise optimization and asset performance management (APM), helping customers maximize productivity while ensuring product quality and sustainability.
Industrial companies need to become digital to survive,” said Jeff Immelt, Chairman and CEO of GE. “While the Internet has transformed consumer worth, industry has not yet seen its fair share. GE is leading the transformation as it merges the physical and digital worlds of machines and software. By sharing core technologies among our businesses through the GE Store, we’re able to spread our science and software capabilities widely and lead the development of the entire industry ecosystem.”
