The 'machine learning' involved in General Electric's (GE) Predix platform is a game-changer and Microsoft (MSFT) is coming along for the ride, said TheStreet's Jim Cramer. Shares of General Electric are up almost on percent on Monday morning after the company said its Predix industrial operating system will be available on Microsoft's Azure cloud. GE's Predix platform is already available on Amazon.com's (AMZN) and Oracle's (ORCL) clouds. Microsoft hopes that GE's Predix will convince its loyal industrial customers to adopt Azure. Microsoft said it will will integrate Predix with its business applications including Office 365, Dynamics 365 and Power BI.
