Brilliant Manufacturing

GE's Intelligent Platforms business has not made a secret of the fact that probably its biggest customer is GE itself. But that’s not to say that it doesn’t have its share of customers outside its own corporate structure, or that the arrangement makes business easygoing. What it means is that Intelligent Platforms' development team has been spurred on my having one of the biggest, most demanding OEMs out there be really tough on them and really honest.

In many cases, Intelligent Platforms' customers become their managers, getting to know so well what they most want from the control, software and analytics that it makes sense for them to take over the reins. After years as chief information officer at GE Energy Storage, Rachel Trombetta just recently took up the position of chief commercial platform leader for Intelligent Platforms.
