Only a few trends pop up at this time in our industrial digital market chief among them being partnerships. I saw a news item from GE Digital about partnering with Ernst & Young (EY) on of the large consulting firms. A conversation with Richard Kenedi, GM manufacturing and digital plant for GE Digital was called for.
He told me that even though EY already works with clients to implement GE Digital solutions, this formal agreement allows both organizations to facilitate account planning execution.
According to the news release, companies are seeking to gain a competitive advantage by expediting their digital transformation journey. As critical key performance indicators (KPIs) for the industry include the need for operational efficiency, quality management improvement, loss reduction and energy efficiency, the EY−GE Digital Alliance will provide solutions and guidance on ways to increase productivity while lowering costs. Through this alliance, manufacturers can also leverage support from EY US teams to implement and integrate GE Digital software to develop more data-driven manufacturing operations.
