GE Digital Signs Agreement With Wabtec To Advance Digital Evolution In Mining

GE Digital and Wabtec have announced a multi-year agreement to continue commercialisation of value-add applications, such as Predix Operations Performance Management (OPM) and Predix Asset Performance Management (APM) solutions, with a primary focus on the mining domain.

The agreement builds on the successful collaboration between GE Digital and GE Transportation, now a Wabtec company, where the businesses have seen momentum in their efforts to help mine sites connect people, process and technology in key regions such as South Africa and Australia.

“The Internet of Things (IoT) space is heavily an ecosystem-based engagement for mining companies – involving hardware, cloud platform players, analytics and OEMs,” explained IDC analyst Emilie Ditton. “For the technology providers that are delivering capabilities across that ecosystem, and for the mining companies, fostering and maintaining those ecosystem relationships is a critical part of successfully delivering IoT capabilities that are able to deliver value for customers.”
