The company is the world’s Digital Industrial Company, transforming industry with software-defined machines and solutions that are connected, responsive, and predictive. Jim Fowler, General Electric's chief information officer, noting that GE has been around for 140 years, says, "AWS is our trusted partner that is going to run our company for the next 140 years.” As an example, the GE Oil & Gas division has started this journey by migrating more than half of its core applications to AWS while achieving a 52 percent reduction in its total cost of ownership.
