Q&A: Steve Winkler, GE Digital

GE Digital Principal Architect Steve Winkler gave us a peek at his Cloud Foundry Summit Berlin talk on the role Cloud Foundry plays in the industrial Internet.

How did you get involved in Cloud Foundry?
I actually got involved in Cloud Foundry while I was working with SAP. I was leading their Open Cloud Initiative and got the company involved with the project after I noticed that IBM and Pivotal were going to work to establish a Foundation to manage the project. I then joined the Predix team at GE, and amongst other things, have spent this year creating an Open Source Program Office, with Cloud Foundry as our primary focus.

How did you get involved in Cloud Foundry?
For many years I’ve been building PaaS-like systems for companies such as EBay, Volkswagen, Philips, Cineworld, and others – I just didn’t realise my systems were PaaSes. When I saw Derek Collison and Mark Lucovsky presenting Cloud Foundry at the launch I decided to change the direction of my career. I created a Vagrant-based CF image and sent it to my clients that very day.
