The software divisions of General Electric (GE) and Bosch have struck a partnership agreement to drive the connectivity revolution needed to deliver the Industrial Internet of Things.

GE Digital and Bosch Software Innovations are targeting the development of technology interoperability and platform integration through GE’s Predix operating system and the Bosch IoT Suite.

“Our organisations both have a rich history of manufacturing products, big and small, so we share a common understanding and vision regarding the opportunities in connectivity,” said Rainer Kallenbach, CEO of Bosch Software Innovations. “No company can realise the IoT on its own. It is very important for Bosch to engage in business ecosystems and open source communities. The collaboration with GE Digital is another important milestone for Bosch’s connectivity strategy.”

“It’s industrial companies working together that will make a difference in the Industrial Internet of Things,” said Bill Ruh, CEO of GE Digital. “We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Bosch Software Innovations to advance our IoT platform development.”
