VIMANA Teams with GE Digital to Enable Smart Factory Innovation

Today, VIMANA is announcing its membership in the GE Digital Alliance Program. The collaboration with GE Digital is a milestone for VIMANA, providing our customers solutions for their Smart Factory initiatives. Visit VIMANA experts and hear them discuss how the collaboration will drive innovation at (E-4149) booths at IMTS 2016 in Chicago, September 12th through the 17th.

As a result of the collaboration, VIMANA will bring an expanded solution set for multivendor and legacy industrial asset connectivity, enriched data, and analytics. Manufacturers will have the ability to leverage a broader ecosystem approach, enabling them to take advantage of breakthrough technology and leverage partners with robust integration across the value chain, to outpace the competition.

We approach the market with a consistent strategy. First, securely connecting multivendor and legacy factory assets. VIMANA enables ‘connecting to everything’, using standards to collect data from a wide variety of disparate devices, sensors, instruments, equipment, and software.

Second, data must be enriched and analyzed for insight and action. VIMANA takes massive amounts of data, interprets the data, identifies the true state of the manufacturing system, and facilitates targeted action.

“We are creating exponential value with the GE Digital and VIMANA partnership so manufacturers can outpace the competition. Working with GE Digital, VIMANA can reach a new set of customers and accelerate their digital transformation and business performance. We can leverage the ecosystem enabled by GE’s Predix, cloud-based operating system with the manufacturing intelligence of VIMANA.” — Rick Moran, President & CEO, VIMANA
