    I am hearing more lay offs coming in October in the San Ramon office. Predix is a failed product and they will close down shop very soon

      What’s the alternative? Using public clouds and build on as needed. Having been part cloud service offerings and built private cloud platforms, a couple of favorite quotes I have adapted: “friends don’t let friends build private clouds”, “only person who would build a cloud is someone who hasn’t done it before”

      They have already moved to public cloud. They have realized that it was a big mistake to have their own private cloud.

    There was news that the new CEO has taken away the blank cheque then digital team had. I guess this means frugality and reprioritization.

    Any insights on the Cloud Foundry / Pivotal investments and use?

      Yes CF is used extensively to deploy apps to cloud. Migration to AWS from GE's internal cloud is going on full steam

      Will those apps still be deployed on CF on AWS?

    Oh yeah they did, but they are suffering from serious lack of direction and product strategy and hence they are confused at what they are doing.

    I'm curious to know what happened. Are they still letting people go?
    I see that they are hiring

    • As part of the “cost out” initiative many Global Ops people were given a heads up in November that their roles would “likely” be going away/elsewhere come Jan-Feb but no real pink slips, per se. Folks were told they could look internally, but vacancies are hard to come by. Understandably, several of those people subsequently left their roles for opportunities outside of GE rather than take the risk of being laid off. Strategic move on GE’s part for many reasons that can be presumed.

    San Ramon is a nightmare to work with. They should just shut down the site.

    Didn't they open it recently? I thought they were investing heavily in their San Ramon office
