Schneider Electric and Microsoft leverage respective business technologies to produce easy-to-use, interoperable software solutions for utilities.
Schneider Electric and Microsoft will work together to leverage key aspects of their respective technologies, resulting in more scalable solutions with higher performance and increased security at a lower cost for utilities throughout the world.
This collaboration will allow Schneider Electric greater access to Microsoft technology and resources to address the most pressing needs of the smart grid age, including performance metrics, response times and security. Schneider Electric will also incorporate more of Microsoft’s Smart Energy Reference Architecture (SERA) and cloud computing platform.
As a result, utilities will benefit from reduced IT costs, easier-to-implement upgrades and more convenient monthly software fees rather than large, capital-intensive IT projects. Schneider Electric is a Gold Certified Partner of Microsoft and already utilizes the Microsoft platform.
