The Industrial Internet is all about optimizing an industry’s assets and operations. Advanced analytics, data, and software enable our devices to connect and be better understood in new ways. At GE, we are developing the next generation of software and analytic capabilities to enable our industries to benefit from the Industrial Internet. In this presentation, I will introduce the concepts and technologies behind the Industrial Internet, describe how Big Data is a critical component, survey how industry is approaching Big Data, and describe several of our existing efforts to research and develop technologies for the Industrial Internet utilizing Big Data. To fully realize the value out of massive industrial data, we need to think about the ecosystem of big distributed storage, compute, and knowledge to achieve re-usable, repeatable, and intelligent Big Data products.
