    Announcement Overview • GE held its fourth annual industrial IoT-focused Minds+Machines conference in San Francisco from September 29 to October 1. The massive increase in attendance (1,300 attendees in total) as well as a growing roster of ecosystem partners and reference projects indicate GE has achieved true momentum in key Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) areas such as predictive/preventive analytics and connected sensor-powered advanced industrial automation. • GE’s burgeoning leadership in the IIoT is driven by the clear ROI available in its key vertical markets – including health care, oil/gas and transportation (aircraft engines, locomotives and the like) – where just a 1% increase in asset performance results in massive improvements in operating efficiencies and improved bottom-line performance. • With the introduction of its Predix Cloud platform in August, GE is poised to become a leading provider of industrial cloud computing, storage, infrastructure, and especially data-driven analytics. GE expects to become a top 10 software provider, with revenue from software and related analytics forecast to grow from $6B this year to $15B by 2020. • To highlight its new position in the market, GE has undergone a massive internal transformation with the creation of GE Digital, with a headcount of approximately 30,000 in over 100 countries. The new unit benefits GE’s internal units initially; but over time the clear focus will be to use the Predix Cloud platform to grow GE’s digital revenue with and through a growing roster of external customers and partners.

    - According to a recently published IHS report (Smart Home Energy Management Devices Report – 2015) analyzing the market for demand-response enabled smart home energy management devices, in-home displays and smart thermostats will lead the way in terms of installed base numbers but will generate less revenue than smart appliances – a combined US$57 million compared to nearly US$3 billion – due to government and utility company subsidies.
