Schneider Electric has further reaffirmed its position as one of the most innovative global specialists in energy management and automation with the introduction of EcoStruxure platform.
The new system which is IoT-enabled, and an open interoperable solution, was designed to improve business efficiency, reliability, safety and connectivity.
“With critical factors such as frequent power outages, rising energy prices, climate changes and conflicts for resource access and controls, there is need for a holistic and robust energy infrastructure that ensures safe, efficient and green energy consumption from grid to rack. That’s the edge Schneider EcoStruxure offers as a formidable ally,” said Okechi Osuagwu, senior solutions architect, Datacentre and Infrastructure, Schneider Electric.
He made these remarks at the just concluded International Data Corporation (IDC) 2017 event themed ‘Next-Gen Datacenters: Making a Cloud Reality’ which took place recently at Four Points by Sheraton Hotel, Lagos.
Osuagwu explained further that the EcoStruxure Data Center Solutions provide an open architecture of connected products and interoperable system across the domains of IT, Power and Buildings as well as apps, analytics & services for mobility, monitoring and insights. “We deploy the EcoStruxure in a tailored instance for each of the vertical end markets from Building, Data Center, Industry, and Infrastructure where Schneider Electric has decades of deep domain expertise and applied experience,” he noted.
The new platform collects and analyses critical data from sensors to cloud, with key features for implementing smart operations across enterprises such as monitoring environmental parameters and asset utilization, providing predictive analysis, smart alarming and the possibility to make control decisions anytime, anywhere and from any smart device.
Mr. Osuagwu remarked that “EcoStruxure maximizes the value of translating data into actionable intelligence to enable better business decisions and has so far, recorded successes to the tune of 75% less time spent on data centre maintenance in Genpact, a BPO Company in India, 30% reduction in power and cooling costs, in Core computing data centre, Korea as well as a 59% capital expenditure savings with self-cooling micro data centre enclosures in Towergate, UK. It’s about time business owners take advantage of our solutions and experience these kinds of successes here in Nigeria,” he said.
