GE released a study today showing that the industrial Internet has the potential to boost the global GDP by as much as $10 to $15 Trillion by 2030. This report comes on the heels of an article published last week in the New York Times that reported on GE’s plans to invest $1 Billion to create a new software center by 2015. This facility is planned to have 400 computer scientists and software engineers developing products that will bring digital intelligence to the physical world of the industry at a scale never before seen.
