Predix = IOS for the industrial internet?
GE recently wrote a paper that posited that their platform (Predix) will do for the industrial internet what IOS did for consumer apps.
Of course not all the other players are sitting still. By one account, there are about 300 “IoT platforms” out there. Specifically, in the industrial internet, not only are the big software players (Microsoft with IoT suite, IBM with it’s IoT Foundation, SAP with HCP…) active, so interestingly are the manufacturers (Bosch with its suite, Trumpf with Axoom etc.). The Economist had a couple of articles on this a few weeks ago. It’s going to get bloody.
