GE Software has joined forces with other industry leaders and innovators to build an ecosystem of companies committed to igniting the next Industrial Revolution. Through our partnerships, we are sharing our expertise, catalyzing complementary development, and extending our reach. The result is a consistent, connected, and collaborative approach to harness the potential of the Industrial Internet and deliver powerful customer outcomes.

GE and SoftBank have formed a strategic alliance that makes SoftBank the first to license GE’s Predix® platform in order to deliver Industrial Internet applications to customers in Japan. This arrangement will allow both companies to tap Japan’s $12B data analytics market and develop revenue streams for GE in industries outside its traditional markets. The partnership will focus on providing value to customers by leveraging analytics to predict failures before they happen and by optimizing supply chains, distribution models, and product development.

SoftBank Corp. (TSE:9984), through its subsidiaries and associates, offers a comprehensive range of advanced mobile communications, fixed-line communications and Internet services around the world. With Sprint joining in July 2013, the SoftBank Group became a leading global carrier that now has over 100 million subscribers. Maximizing synergies across its Group companies worldwide, SoftBank aspires to realize lifestyle innovation through IT. SoftBank is also encouraging the adoption of clean and safe energy through its business activities. To learn more, please visit
