Schneider Electric Launches New Services to Manage Distributed IT

According to a recent announcement, Schneider Electric has launched a suite of Monitoring & Dispatch Services, designed to enable IT solution providers and end users to optimize resources, improve efficiency, and help prevent downtime. By simplifying the management of edge computing sites, the company says the new services make life easier for IT staff, ensure coverage at any unmanned sites and can provide significant savings over the lifecycle of the infrastructure. Services include remote monitoring, troubleshooting, and on-site, next-business-day remediation, including replacement parts.

“Schneider Electric continues to find new and innovative ways to simplify operating at the edge while increasing uptime, meeting the key challenges of multiple remote sites and limited IT staff,” said Kevin Brown, SVP, EcoStruxure, Energy Management Business, Schneider Electric. “With our global footprint and domain expertise in IT infrastructure, we are providing more options to enable our partners and end users to do what they do best and make it easier for an open ecosystem to effectively function.”

Digital transformation depends on edge computing, Schneider sad in the release, which places IT infrastructure across distributed networks. In a recent report from IDC, analysts commented: “edge IT presents organizations with new challenges related to areas such as deployment, integration, network management, security, and cost management.”

Monitoring & Dispatch Services are available in North America and will be available at the end of June in Australia, Austria, Germany, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. The services will be launched in additional countries throughout the remainder of 2020 and into 2021.
