How GE’s Current curtailed dreams to meet reality
This week Kevin and I spend a bit of time on industrial IoT news with Rockwell Automation’s $ 1 billion investment in PTC and also ARM’s buy of a Stream Technologies. On the consumer side, we debate Wi-Fi subscription plans and Nest’s price drop and Ring’s new security system. We also talk about Thread’s milestone in industrial IoT, Verizon’s new CEO, and whether or not Google Home can now handle three consecutive commands. I review the Wyze Pan Cam and we answer a question about the Qolsys’ IQ Panel 2. This week’s guest is Garret Miller, the chief digital officer at Current by GE, who explains why the division is for sale, why GE has to offer lighting as a service, and how reality forced a shift in thinking for Current. It’s a good interview about how to reassess the market when needed.
