GE and Oracle yesterday announced a partnership focused on building the first of its kind platform for companies to digitally connect industrial assets across the world.
Through this collaboration, GE Digital and Oracle will develop and integrate complementary solutions across their product portfolios. GE Digital brings its Predix offering that combines technology and decades of industry experience into a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) targeted to securely ingest machine-grade data at scale and quickly analyzes it to deliver outcomes.
The Predix platform is purpose-built for developing, deploying, operating, and monetizing Industrial Internet applications. Oracle’s enterprise solutions, including its Oracle Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud Applications, and ERP and Supply Chain Management applications, can use the information from Industrial Internet devices to help automate and optimize business processes, enable better asset visibility, more efficient supply chains, intelligent manufacturing, predictive maintenance and service, and improve logistics and transportation efficiency.
GE’s operational technology and Oracle’s enterprise solutions are intended to integrate into one optimized view for customers, allowing for end-to-end insight from customer assets in the field and on the factory floor, to the front and back office to the boardroom.
With these integrated solutions, customers can connect any machine or sensor to any other machine or business application to also create disruptive and innovative products and services.
