Challenge

Since 1878 GE has been an industrial pioneer, imaging things others don’t, building things others can’t and delivering outcomes that make the world work better. Today GE is inventing the next industrial era to move, power, build and cure the world. Set on answering the unique needs and scale of customers across aviation, energy, healthcare and transportation, GE wanted to create the world’s first and only cloud solution designed specifically for industrial data and analytics.  With Predix Cloud, GE needed a platform-as-a-service (PaaS) to capture and analyze the unique volume, velocity and variety of machine data within a highly secure, industrial-strength cloud environment.

Solution – Cloud Foundry

The Open Cloud Native Application Platform for:

  • Continuous Delivery of Microservices
  • Agile + Extreme Programming
  • Open Source Tools for Developers
  • Secure and Reliable Cloud Operations

Cloud Foundry helps GE’s Predix Cloud deliver advanced tools like asset connectivity, machine data support and industrial-grade security and compliance.

“Cloud Foundry was paramount in our ability to lift the discussion and lift the focus of what we’re doing to a completely different level that will get us closer to the Industrial Internet abstraction.”

Harel Kodesh, Vice President, General Manager of Predix, GE Software

Results

  • Enables fast development and deployment
  • Faster, more efficient use of machine data
  • Billions in annual savings

“Most of the things we’re building are considered national critical infrastructure. They have to work all the time. We want to make sure that at the end of the day, the Industrial Internet is not only high performance, but also high security. We cannot tolerate breaches either by nation states or just by bad people that would like to play around with some of those assets that we have at our disposal.”

Harel Kodesh, Vice President, General Manager of Predix, GE Software
