GE’s Jeff Immelt: The Full D11 Interview (Video)

What is the “industrial Internet,” exactly? GE CEO Jeff Immelt explains.


Chairman & CEO

There is no bigger conglomerate to ask about how big companies are reacting to the Internet revolution than GE and its chairman and CEO, Jeff Immelt. Immelt has held several global leadership positions since coming to GE in 1982, including roles in its plastics, appliances, and health-care businesses. While GE operates across many segments, from energy to technology infrastructure to capital finance, the changes and impact of digital have been paramount for GE. Immelt recently wrote a provocative editorial on the “Industrial Internet” and the rise of intelligent machines, about leveraging “the power of the cloud to connect machines embedded with sensors and sophisticated software to other machines (and to us) so we can extract data, make sense of it and find meaning where it did not exist before.”
