Recognizing the Power of Connectivity

Automation World Awards

Kim Schultz, Neal Skidmore, Bill Huntley, Yanis Liaskos, Tom Jeffery, and Connie Chick stand proudly with their awards.

I’m proud to announce we recently were recognized as a First Team Honoree in five categories by Automation World magazine for their 2015 Leadership in Automation program. In its fifth year, the program recognizes innovation, leadership and excellence among suppliers of automation software, technology and products.

Honorees are selected by Automation World’s readers in an open-ended, unbiased survey to determine which suppliers are the preferred choice among their peers. For 2015, GE was named a Leadership in Automation First Team Honoree in the categories of Data Acquisition Hardware, Historian/Data Acquisition Software, Human Machine Interface (HMI) Hardware, HMI Software and Mobility.

Being named a leader in automation by Automation World magazine and its readers is both an honor and a reflection of our dedication to developing innovating and exciting new solutions for our customers. As the world becomes more connected, mass amounts of data is generated, all of which needs to be collected, analyzed and utilized to improve the way we live and the way that we generate and distribute power. 

In support of GE’s goal of becoming a leading digital industrial company, Industrial Internet solutions from Automation & Controls enable customers to optimize equipment performance and ensure reliable and efficient operations by connecting their machines, data, insights and people. Examples include our recent launch of the SCADA Edge IPC, preconfigured with Proficy HMI/SCADA software; RXi-XR IPC, specifically designed for demanding transportation applications; RSTi-EP I/O, which combines modularity, compact design, and high performance; and new features and capabilities on our QuickPanel+ Operator Interface. And there’s more to come.

I’m extremely proud of the team for this recognition…a true indication that we are indeed disrupting the industrial automation space and connecting machines to brilliance across the globe.
