November 28, 2016 GE’s Topcoder Community for Predix Update: Educational Challenges are Live
Get Predix savvy with the Predix educational challenge series and earn TCO points!
Why is this important to me and Topcoder?
According to IndustryWeek’s article “Building the Industrial Internet with GE, ”…[the] driving force behind taking Predix to market was the scope of the opportunity… [a market that] could reach $225 billion by 2020.” Well, it’s practically 2017 and that opportunity means $225 billion over the next three years! There are going to be a lot of products, applications and more being developed over the next few years and GE is going to need a lot of smart and savvy people (like our Topcoder community) to bring this vision to life.
Remind me again, what is Predix?
Predix is an IoT platform developed by GE that focuses on building solutions for the Industrial Internet, otherwise known as a cloud-to-edge based Platform-as-a-Service.
