G.E. Plans App Store for Industrial Companies

Note: This is a repost from the INFN boards I thought I would share. The upshot is I believe we will see more emerging entrants of high speed data centers as demand grows for M2M devices and software services, and they will come from unexpected sources. This is one example.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get more interesting, G.E. takes leap forward into providing software services for their universe of MTM products:


G.E. is announcing on Wednesday a push into computer-based services, connecting sensors that are on machines to distant computing centers where data will be scanned for insights around things like performance, maintenance and supplies. The company plans to spend about $500 million annually building the business, according to the executive in charge.

Long INFN and loving it
