July 11, 2013 – GE has announced what it says is the first big data and analytics platform big enough to manage the data produced by large-scale, industrial machines in the cloud. Built to support the industrial internet and turn big data into real-time insight, the platform aims to benefit major global industries including aviation, healthcare, energy production and distribution, transportation and manufacturing. Combined with the new GE Predictivity services and technologies available today, airlines, railroads, hospitals and utilities can manage and operate critical machines such as jet engines and gas turbines in the cloud, running businesses better by increasing productivity and reducing waste and downtime, says GE.
