GE's Vision for the Industrial Internet

GE recently announced the launch of its latest plank of the Proficy software platform, Proficy Vision. This solution has been designed as big data management tool with a manufacturing slant. To find out more about GE's roadmap for the industrial Internet and how Proficy Vision fits into this plan, we spoke with Don Busiek, general manager for manufacturing software at GE.

According to Busiek, Proficy Vision is the result of a decades-long problem in the manufacturing industry, where machines and software cannot share necessary information among themselves. Busiek says that GE's goal in developing this platform was to allow the different types of software chose by executives and engineers to communicate effectively.
