GE CEO Talks Economy, CIOs & Tech


GE CEO Talks Economy, CIOs & Tech

I heard GE's Jeffrey Immelt speak last week, and I thought our IT community members would like to hear what the CEO of a $150 billion-a-year company is thinking about the economy, technology, and the role of the CIO. If anyone is trying to sell you on the diminished role for the CIO, IT organization, or technology pro, read on for a counterview.

The context: Immelt was speaking to IT leaders at a user conference for GE Intelligent Platforms, there to sell GE's software that manages and analyzes industrial data.
