Several years ago we formalized our global partnership with Schneider Electric and it’s been a tremendous success story with solutions that really are making a business impact with our customers from the Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS) to the StruxureWare™ Resource Advisor solution.

imageLast week Schneider announced another milestone in our alliance – the ability to develop custom, cloud-based energy management and sustainability software for customers across diversified industries. By combining the technology foundation of Schneider Electric’s StruxureWare™ Resource Advisor on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, the companies can deliver best in class technology tools that improve the performance of customer processes and operations. By expanding Schneider Electric’s ability to rapidly deploy public, private and hybrid cloud solutions, the partnership enables increased innovation in energy efficiency, accelerating development, reducing costs and increasing reliability and security of global offers for customers. You can read more about the announcement here and a ZDNet article entitled: “Schneider Electric leverages Azure to offer cloud-based software dev capabilities”.

Last, we encourage you to view today’s webinar relating to the announcement: From Sustainability Strategy to Project Implementation: How Technology Can Get You There with Schneider’s Mike Fraser, Vice President, Global Sustainability Services and Microsoft’s Kathryn Willson, Director, Cities Solutions, Microsoft Corporation. May the Cloud be with You! –  Jon C. Arnold
