GE is maybe one of the most spectacular example of traditional company transformation in order to act as digital vendor and to offer digital solutions to the customers, writes couldmania. Big part of this transformation process is related to Jeffrey Immelt – Chairman and CEO of GE from September 2001, coined as "the father of the Industrial Internet".

In September 2015, Jeffrey Immelt announced foundation of the new GE Digital division, as main movement in the US industrial conglomerate strategy to compete in the software industry. Managed by Bill Ruh, GE's software chief, the new GE Digital division will provide the best industrial solutions and the software needed to solve real world problems.

GE Digital strategy is based on four main digital drivers: IoT, Intelligent grids, Big Data, and Analytics. In GE Digital vision, the Industrial Internet is taking place through the convergence of the global industrial system with the power of advanced computing, analytics, low-cost sensing and new levels of connectivity afforded by the Internet. It brings together three key elements: brilliant machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. It drives powerful outcomes and affords new possibilities for industry enabling businesses to reach never-seen-before performance levels.

According GE's CEO, "in the next five years GE will be a USD15 billion software business, compared with around USD3 billion in 2011 and around USD6 billion today. Within the next 15 years, digital industrial companies will add USD15 trillion to global GDP."
