At Mobile World Congress this week, GE announced the GE Digital Alliance Program, designed to connect systems integrators, telecommunications service providers, independent software vendors, technology providers and resellers with GE’s technology and digital industrial expertise. For the first time, GE alliance members will be able to train and certify their developers and begin building industrial apps with Predix, GE’s cloud platform for the Industrial Internet.
The program will also offer participants access to sales, marketing and technical resources from across GE Digital, as well as digital tools, training and enablement, online content and assets, Predix certification, developer sandboxes, joint deal registration and specific benefits based upon contribution level. This move brings Predix to the world’s largest developer ecosystem, unlocking new applications for the Industrial Internet.
“With the launch of the GE Digital Alliance Program, we are providing alliance members with expanded access to GE Digital tools, technologies and domain expertise,” says Denzil Samuels, head of global channels and alliances, GE Digital. “The new alliance program is also designed to take us to the size and scale required to truly drive unprecedented growth, as well as certifying thousands of developers, implementers and consultants to give us the largest ecosystem of qualified technical capacity. We are excited to work closely with some of the most forward-thinking companies in technology to unlock unprecedented value for our customers.”
As part of the GE Digital Alliance Program, GE also unveiled new collaborations with Intel, Capgemini, TCS, Deloitte Digital, Infosys, Genpact, Softtek and Wipro Limited.
The exchange of knowledge, technology and resources available through the GE Digital Alliance Program will be facilitated through GE’s growing network of Digital Foundries located around the world, the first of which will be based in Paris.
