GE Cloud Platform Poised to Bring Automation Into Connected World

Bernie Anger, general manager for control and communication systems at GE Intelligent Platforms, is on the cusp of a major industry change. Coming soon to factories and plants near you? Automation systems that operate on cloud platforms. It's a seismic shift, from a world of closed, relatively static systems to a collaborative development platform on which companies can dynamically aggregate information. The goal is to increase productivity and efficiency dramatically by sharing such information as reusable algorithms, established troubleshooting methods and simulations for real-world scenarios.
