GE’s business relies on a wide variety of industrial machinery that generates vast amounts of data. Predix, a cloud-based platform developed by GE Digital, enables workers in the field to use mobile apps to analyze that data on the spot. After Predix was implemented, GE soon realized they needed a mobile platform that provides high availability and performance even when connectivity is poor. Thanks to its flexible base model, Couchbase Mobile allowed GE to migrate Predix to Couchbase with full functionality in just 30 days. Now data is stored on workers’ mobile devices and syncs to the cloud when connectivity is available.

“With Couchbase, my top engineers didn’t have to focus on the mobile sync and data management challenges anymore.”

Director of Predix Mobile Engineering, GE Digital
