General Electric will partner with AT&T, Cisco and Intel in order to expand its “industrial internet” meant to aid customers in analyzing big data, according to a Reuters report.
Sruthi Ramakrishnan writes that Bill Ruh, GE Software’s Corporate Officer, said GE designed its internet offering to help users track, monitor and operate GE’s big data machinery wirelessly.
GE intends to support large sets of data that cannot be supported by traditional software, according to the report.
Companies such as Amazon Web Services, Accenture Plc, and Pivotal are already supporting the service.
GE said it has 14 industrial internet customers and project has contributed to $290 million in revenue this year, Reuters reports.
Industrial data is projected to grow at twice the rate of any other big data category over the next 10 years, Ramakrishnan writes.
