GE Digital and Microsoft announced an expanded partnership to go-to-market together and also explore deeper integration of Predix IIoT platform with Microsoft Azure Stack to enable hybrid deployments across public and private clouds.

GE Digital plans to deeply integrate the Predix portfolio with Azure’s native cloud capabilities, including Azure IoT and Azure Data and Analytics. In addition, GE will leverage Microsoft Azure across its business for additional IT workloads and productivity tools, including internal Predix-based deployments, to drive innovation across the company.

GE Digital’s Predix is the application development platform that equips industrial organizations with everything they need to rapidly build, securely deploy and effectively run IIoT applications from edge to cloud, turning asset data into actionable insights. Tapping into the power of Azure will help accelerate adoption of the Predix portfolio, says the companies.

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.
