Schneider Electric announced the launch of Schneider Electric Exchange, a cross-industry open ecosystem dedicated to solving real-world sustainability and efficiency challenges.
Schneider Electric Exchange empowers a diverse community of solvers to create and scale business solutions and seize new market value. As digitization revolutionizes the way we work and interact, energy fundamentally becomes more distributed. With Schneider Electric Exchange, individuals gain entry to a network of technical tools and resources to develop, share and sell digital and IoT innovations.
“What differentiates Schneider Electric Exchange is that it brings together people across industries and practice areas that share a passion for sustainability and efficiency, enabling collaboration and interaction across ecosystems. While all content, IoT applications, software, datasets, analytics and tools are available to everyone, we have focused on specific capabilities that fit the needs and expectations of each community,” says Hervé Coureil, Chief Digital Officer, Schneider Electric.
Schneider Electric Exchange draws on the company’s ecosystem of digital partners to accelerate and scale innovation – and provide companies with the tools needed to operate AI for real-world problems. Accenture, a global management consulting and professional services firm, creates custom solutions and develops digital business models. Another partner, Claroty, a security specialist for operational technology infrastructure, offers industrial cybersecurity expertise, working with companies to address the larger digital risk surface that comes with integrating IIoT solutions.
Schneider is using published datasets and SaaS from the Schneider Electric Exchange partner Senseye, a technology company in predictive maintenance (UK), in one of its Smart Factory manufacturing plants, Le Vaudreuil. Likewise, Schneider is co-innovating a digital service offer for the retail chain market in Italy with the company Predictive Layer, which specializes in energy forecasting. Through its network of communities, Schneider Electric Exchange can broaden the geographic and market reach or our partners.
