SAN RAMON, Calif. – SEPTEMBER 13, 2022 – GE Digital, a leading industrial software company, today announced at HANNOVER MESSE USA that it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Industrial Software Competency status. This designation recognizes that GE Digital provides an end-to-end toolchain for product design, production design, and production/operations on AWS to help customers run design and manufacturing entities without the need of their own datacenters. GE Digital is also expanding its offerings in the AWS Marketplace with new cloud-based operational intelligence and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software.
Achieving the AWS Industrial Software Competency differentiates GE Digital as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with specific focus on workloads based on Product Design, Production Design, and Production/Operations. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.
“Industrial companies looking to transform their operations and achieve peak production, quality, and efficiency can’t do it without the cloud and software that meets corporate IT strategies,” said Richard Kenedi, General Manager of GE Digital’s Manufacturing and Digital Plant business. “We’re proud to achieve the AWS Industrial Software Competency status, as it distinguishes GE Digital as an AWS Partner with demonstrated technical expertise and proven success with 20,000+ customers in the manufacturing and infrastructure industries.”
AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from various enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Competency Program to help customers identify AWS Partners with deep experience and expertise in specialized areas across industries, use cases, and workflows.
Proficy Historian for Cloud, the world’s first cloud-native historian software, launched in the AWS Marketplace earlier this year. This industrial data management solution is designed to facilitate a more simplified and reliable movement of operational technology (OT) data to the cloud at scale and provide a foundation for IoT-fueled optimization through cloud-based analytics.
Proficy Smart Factory is GE Digital’s MES software, for which the company was positioned by Gartner® as a Leader in the May 2022 Magic Quadrant™ for Manufacturing Execution Systems.
This industry-leading operations management solution, designed to enable industrial companies to quickly measure, control, and improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), quality, and production, is available as a managed service and hosted on AWS. GE Digital is listing Proficy Smart Factory’s cloud-based MES software in AWS Marketplace along with its operational intelligence solution, Proficy Operations Hub. Proficy Operations Hub provides a single, standards-based operations interface across OT systems designed to increase real-time operational intelligence to drive greater efficiency, productivity, and energy savings.
To receive AWS Industrial Software Competency, AWS Partners undergo rigorous technical validation related to industry-specific technology, as well as an assessment of the security, performance, and reliability of their solutions. This validation allows industrial customers to more easily select skilled AWS Partners to help accelerate their digital transformation with confidence.
“Proficy Historian for Cloud, our Proficy Smart Factory cloud-based MES, and Proficy Operations Hub are powerful software solutions that can help industrial companies level-up their operations,” concluded Kenedi. “Our AWS Industrial Software Competency Status will allow us to work more closely with AWS to help our industrial customers achieve their digital transformation goals.”
