What a day! More than 300 customers, partners and industry leaders joined us for the first day of the 2019 GE Digital User Conference. Our time together was jam packed with dozens of customer stories, product demonstrations, and celebrations of the new product enhancements announced Tuesday morning.
We kicked off the conference with a welcome from CEO Pat Byrne who reinforced our commitment to customer immersion in everything we do. GE Digital’s depth of experience is a powerful engine for innovation, but it must be grounded in our customers’ business imperatives to drive lasting value. There’s nothing more important we can do at this conference than listen to and learn from each other.
Next, it was our pleasure to welcome Forrester analyst, Frank Gillett who reminded us that every company is doing IoT, but not every company is doing it intentionally. The organizations that are strategic about their efforts can not only better control operational costs, but can introduce entirely new business models.
The breakout presentations and panel discussions were all about realizing Pat and Frank’s vision of using IIoT to realize new possibilities. Here are some of the highlights shared throughout the day.
Whew! There was so much learning from Day 1. Read the highlights from Day 2.
