Karim Bibawi, GE Digital Alliance Global lead said, “Most industries are undergoing radical digital transformation, and it’s critical to understand the unique complexities of each sector.” He continued, “For example, as power generation now leverages diverse sources including fossil fuels, nuclear and renewables, distributed generation, and stored energy — operational efficiencies and real-time supply and revenue management are essential. Industrial and oil and gas organizations need to develop innovative business models to drive productivity and growth.
