“In today’s world, companies are looking for ways to cut costs as they navigate through a brutal worldwide recession,” said John Leppiaho, Operations Management Infrastructure Solutions Leader, GE Intelligent Platforms. “Unfortunately, organizations are swimming in a sea of data created by the complexity of many operations, often across facilities.
