GE Aviation Creates Digital Business
GE Aviation recently announced the creation of a digital organization that brings all of the digital expertise from across Aviation into one business. This new Digital business will be led by Jim Daily as president and chief digital officer, Engineering and Technology for GE Aviation. GE Aviation Digital will form its own division within GE Aviation, supporting the operations of customers across the aviation ecosystem by leveraging data science, domain expertise, and software capabilities to increase productivity and minimize down time.
“Over the past two years, we have shown the significant benefit that GE Aviation can provide customers by combining our depth of aviation product knowledge with the rapidly growing technologies around digital and analytics,” said David Joyce, president and CEO of GE Aviation. “We have only taken our first steps in this journey, and the GE Aviation Digital organization will be the driving force to achieve aggressive goals for operational value for our customers.”
In addition to bringing an enhanced digital capability to the engines monitored by GE Aviation, GE and its customers reportedly are working together to unlock new opportunities to grow and deliver more productivity beyond traditional services. GE opened its Middle East Aviation Technology Center in Dubai late last year to support customers’ operations by region.
