General Electric, which recently said it plans to move its global headquarters to downtown Boston, has focused its Internet of Things development in the industrial and manufacturing space.

GE’s Digital Professional Services Leader, Mark Bernardo, said industrial applications have been largely neglected in IoT development.

’It’s been left out of the picture, often. You think about plant floors, you think about these big machines, even big legacy machines – [it is] the ability to pull data off those machines and connect them up so they can interface with each other but also be able to pull all the data in a general way,’ Bernardo said.

Bernardo said GE’s solutions primarily center around asset performance management, so that manufacturing and industrial spaces reach their full potential in terms of energy use and optimization.

When GE moves into its new space in Boston’s Fort Point neighborhood, IoT development will be a major area of innovation within those offices.

’We’re trying to establish ourselves truly as a digital, industrial company. It also requires us to rethink the role of headquarters,’ said Bernardo, who added the new offices will be ’the ecosystem to drive innovation.’
