Imagine a world where nothing ever breaks. Can we get greater fuel efficiency on a machine? Can the machine generate more electricity? Can we ensure that we can get rid of unscheduled downtime? These are the kinds of groundbreaking changes we are going to see.

If you think about the important of the industrial internet it's really about what the next decade is going to focus on. The last decade was about consumer internet. What we are talking about now is the same kind of transformation we saw in these consumer businesses in the industrial sector.

GE Digital is all about recognizing that digital industrials are really what's going to spur the growth over the next twenty years.

Take machines but more sensors than ever before pull data off those machines and drive greater productivity and efficiency in every part of the industrial value chain.

Downtime is bad. It reduces your operating profit in the plant. It causes quality issues. And so taking that data and combining it with enterprise data around demand volume loads lets you really get the most throughput out of a product.

Working with our partners like HPE, we are helping out customers optimize their services around their industrial products and get benefit in a very quick win and then helping them rethink their digital strategy and look to new kinds of offerings. We feel we can do this with any          industrial company. The ability to partner together is absolutely essential because nobody because nobody can do everything in the industrial internet.

HPE has been a great partner. They bring unique expertise to us. We began with our Predix platform cloud and using the HPE ProLiant Servers. But that is not the end, that's just the beginning.

Predix is a hybrid cloud and we have the ability to run in public cloud offerings for customers that want it that way as well as on our own private cloud.

We had to really look hard to find a partner who could provide the infrastructure to work in that hybrid cloud and we are really happy with what we found with Hewett Packard Enterprise.

You can collect data on an industrial nature, build industrial analytics and then distribute that out to people and to machines to be much more efficient.

Voice Over:
Jim Fowler, Chief Information Officer, GE Digital
We've announced agreements with other industrial companies who are going to use our Predix platform to improve the operations for themselves and for their customers.

I think this is a game-changer really not just for our company but more importantly for our customers and it's really what's going to spur their growth.

Voice Over:
Bill Ruh, CEO/Chief Digital Officer, GE Digital
The most valuable companies on the planet are going to be those who can drive the best outcomes on industrial assets. And for GE we are a company that's in the business of building these industrial assets. These are going to be unique opportunities for us and HPE. That's what excites me.
