Bengaluru, India – February 7, 2023
Infosys (NSE, BSE, NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced a strategic collaboration with GE Digital, GE’s software division, to accelerate grid transformation for the utilities sector. Together, GE Digital and Infosys will follow a joint go-to-market approach to deliver value added solutions for grid related products and services, for their new and existing clients.
Infosys and GE Digital will jointly bring these solutions for the utilities industry to help grid operators realize a more reliable, resilient, and sustainable grid. This will be driven by an industry-leading grid orchestration software platform and a suite of intelligent applications that bring together energy data, network modeling, and artificial intelligence (AI). This collaboration combines GE’s deep expertise and experience with utilities in the energy sector, and long years of investment in grid equipment and platforms, and Infosys’ breadth of business transformation, system integration, and advanced technology capabilities that will enable efficient electric grid orchestration.
This engagement builds on Infosys’ eighteen-year relationship with GE, that includes collaboration on innovative technology crucial for energy transition.
Infosys will build a GE Digital Center of Excellence (CoE) to expand the talent pool for the GE GridOS® portfolio and bring in best practices in service delivery. Infosys will also invest in accelerators to integrate the GE platform and application suite into enterprise ecosystems and address client specific requirements. In addition, Infosys will bring in digital capabilities in areas like AI, Cloud, Cybersecurity and Industrial IoT to support utility transformation. This 360-degree collaboration will enable Infosys to work with GE to deliver the benefits of Information Technology and Operational Technology (IT-OT) convergence to utilities.
“With energy transition driving increasing complexity on the grid, alignment between IT and OT is becoming very important,” said, Mahesh Sudhakaran, General Manager, GE Digital Grid Software. “Our collaboration with Infosys will help accelerate adoption of grid software that bridges these disciplines, equipping the next generation of grid operators with the tools they need to keep the grid stable, resilient, and sustainable. The utility’s ability to not just manage but orchestrate the clean energy grid relies on a unique combination of software and partnership for strategy building, as well as execution of solutions. Infosys’ clear understanding of GE solutions and strong commitment to leadership will enable significant productivity and service level improvements, along with critical cost efficiencies.”
