Tech Mahindra, a specialist in digital transformation, consulting and business re-engineering in collaboration with GE Digital initiated a 24-hour coding Hackathon targeted towards Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). As a part of this initiative Tech Mahindra adopted GE’s Predix, a cloud-based platform in Industrial Internet, across four different locations in India to come out with innovative industrial IoT applications.
“We are very pleased to host this hackathon leveraging one of the most robust IIoT platform, Predix, in collaboration with GE Digital,” said Arvind Malhotra, Global Head, Strategic Accounts & South America. “GE’s Predix will allow the Manufacturing sector to enhance the uptime of equipment and improve productivity, and this should help India enhance the objectives of Prime Minister Modi’s of “Make in India,” he added.
GE Digital recognizes Tech Mahindra’s robust capacity in driving transformation in Internet of Things. Tech Mahindra’s Hackathon 2016 on the Predix platform is the first round-the-clock, multi-city coding competition.
