General Electric to invest $105 million in a PaaS Provider Company

For long a part of VMware and EMC, Pivotal can now branch off on its own and improve its cloud based industrial software applications through $105 million investment proposed by General Electric. Pivotal has evolved and terms itself as a PaaS provider, claiming a set of integrated data fabrics, programming framework and support for legacy infrastructure. In their proposed offerings they plan to include real time communications and retail scenarios, based on their experience working with EMC and VMware. The company aims to bring in far reaching changes in the way enterprises create software, cutting down time of development from months and years to weeks. Pivotal carries with it 1250 employees previously working for VMware and EMC, as also a library of software focused on cloud computing systems, management and analysis and data storage. Pivotal aims to provide those services current leaders in cloud services are not providing at the moment, notably business software creation.

GE aims to build business targeting industrial data that calls for a different set of crucial and dependable solutions that it feels Pivotal can provide with a high level of technological skill. As of now it is a wait and watch approach for Pivotal to come up with a deal breaker.

The $ 105 million investment by GE constitutes 10% holding in Pivotal in which VMware and EMC have a large stake, bringing the total valuation in the venture to $ 1 billion.
