GE (NYSE: GE) announced today that it has created, in collaboration with Pivotal, the first-ever industrial data lake approach to help global industrial customers like airlines, railroads, hospitals and utilities better access, analyze and store terabytes or even petabytes of industrial-strength Big Data, which is far more complex than other types of new and emerging content and information available today. With a 2,000x performance improvement on time to analysis, major industrial companies can spend less time and money managing intensive processes and focus more on turning the data into actionable insight for increased productivity of assets and operations. Today GE is using the Industrial Internet data lake for managing and analyzing full flight data from its customers which include many of the world's largest airlines.
"Big Data is growing so fast that it is outpacing the ability of current tools to take full advantage of it," said
"Big and fast data is a critical piece of how modern industry is reinventing itself in order to innovate and compete," said
Developed on foundational software elements from Pivotal, the industrial data lake will integrate with PredixTM, GE's software platform for the Industrial Internet that provides a standard and secure way to connect machines, analytics, data and people and is built for the unique scale of industrial data. This announcement builds on the strategic partnership between GE and Pivotal to jointly develop a new data architecture that meets the unique requirements of industrial data and critical infrastructure operations.
All information must be converted into recognizable formats before it can be used - a process that has become the bottleneck when managing industrial Big Data. Conventional approaches like data warehouses can be too slow, expensive and inflexible with nearly 80 percent of project time spent on gathering and preparing the data for analysis.

All of GE's PredictivityTM software solutions benefit from this industrial data lake approach. It has been piloted in various industrial settings, including
"Gathering and analyzing data to improve our customers' operations is no longer a futuristic concept, but a real process underway today, and growing in magnitude," said
In a 2013 pilot,
