February 24, 2017
Honeywell Senior Vice President of Engineering, Operations and Information Technology, Krishna Mikkilineni, was interviewed on “Atlanta Tech Edge” last week to discuss Honeywell’s new software center, innovations in connected technologies and job opportunities in Atlanta.
During the six-minute segment, Krishna explained how Honeywell is transforming from a traditional manufacturer to a software-industrial company.
“All of [our] products now are getting connected. All of these products are getting augmented with information technology. As we make that change happen, we need to augment our current set of products and create new-to-the-world products that will couple information technology with what we have done for a long time—industrial type of products.”
Atlanta was selected for its thriving start-up community, diverse software and engineering talent, and proximity to many universities. Atlanta will become the center for development of some of the world’s most sophisticated software-based products and solutions that play a major role in the Internet of Things, helping airplanes, automobiles, buildings, homes, industrial plants, warehouses, and workers stay connected, safe, productive and secure.
In Atlanta, “everything has to do with software development,” Krishna continued. “All the way from software product management, software marketing, software engineering, software testing, software platforms. Anything to do with creating very compelling software offerings.”
Through our connected portfolio, we “will create a new set of value for the kind of customers we serve all over the world.”
