As GE continues its journey to becoming the world's leading Digital Industrial Company, we at Automation & Controls are focusing on the essential role our controls solutions will play in that evolution. Today, in conjunction with GE's Global Research Center (GRC) and GE Digital, we are hosting product managers, engineering managers and key technologists from across the Company for a one-day Controls Summit in Niskayuna, NY (U.S.).
I can think of no better host and setting for this discussion to take place. The Global Research Center has been the inspirational foundation for some of the most significant steps in our company's history. Going back to the days of our founder Thomas Edison, members of GE have gathered at GRC locations to think, collaborate, experiment and learn together.
Today will be no different.
Today we take a critical step in the realization of GE's Digital Industrial vision. Our experts Rich Carpenter, Rod Rice, Steve Pavlosky, Amy Aragones and others are joining me to discuss how our advanced controls are already disrupting the industrial automation market.
And today we move a significant step toward reimagining our control solutions to ensure they continue to help customers meet today's business challenges.
May our journey and yours continue to break new ground together.
