GE Sees $15 Billion in Software Sales in Digital Transformation

  • Immelt's plan calls for improving productivity for customers
  • Software capabilities `will expand our growth rate,' CEO says

General Electric Co. is developing software operations in each of its business lines with the goal of building a $15 billion franchise under Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Immelt’s plan to create a “digital industrial” company.

“We are a company that invests in broad industrial transitions, and they don’t come much bigger than the full application of data and analytics to machines and systems,’’ Immelt said in a shareholder letter released Monday. “Our digital industrial capabilities will expand our growth rate, improve our margins and bring us closer to our customers.’’
