Industrial Internet Journey Begins with Asset Management

Rich Carpenter, GE at the ARC Forum 2015

Whether you call it the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, or the Industrial Internet, it’s all about connecting machines, processes and people wherever they may be. As one of the principal protagonists of Industrial Internet, GE has been very vocal about how this initiative will transform industry.

Speaking with Rich Carpenter, GE’s chief technology strategist, while attending the ARC Forum earlier this month, he stressed that the Industrial Internet is no longer “an if … we’re well into it already.” He added that, even though “we’re already five years into it, we’re just at the beginning of this.”
