Back in 2016, Microsoft and GE announced partnership that brought GE’s Predix platform for the Industrial Internet to Microsoft Azure.
Today, both the companies announced an expanded partnership. As part of this partnership, GE is planning to standardize its Predix solutions on Azure and will also deeply integrate the Predix portfolio with Azure’s native services, including Azure IoT and Azure Data and Analytics. GE and Microsoft will also co-sell and go-to-market together, offering end customers Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions across verticals. GE will also make use of Azure across its business for additional IT workloads and productivity tools, including internal Predix-based deployments to improve its operational efficiency.
The partnership brings together GE Digital’s expertise in industrial data and applications with Microsoft’s enterprise cloud, helping customers speed deployment of industrial applications and achieve tangible outcomes faster, ultimately fueling growth and business innovation.
