About GE and Couchbase
Today’s innovative software is providing new ways for industrial companies to gain a competitive advantage. General Electric set out to bring together device connectivity, data integration and management, data analytics, cloud, and mobility all in a way that works seamlessly together and intuitively for all the members of its business. More specifically, the company needed to provide offline support to GE field engineers who work in remote locations where offline is the norm. In 2015, GE launched the Predix platform, a cloud-based software solution for the Industrial Internet. The Predix Experience engineering team built this platform using Couchbase Mobile in less than 90 days. The platform connects industrial machines like wind turbines, railcars, power plants and more that need 100% uptime, regardless of Internet connection. Predix is now the foundation for all of GE’s Industrial Internet applications and provides powerful, consistent, secure, and scalable support for the solutions its customers rely on to optimize their businesses.
The one key takeaway is that offline support is hard to do right, so get some help. Couchbase Mobile is a great place to start.Michael Hart Senior Software Development Manager, GE
