Schneider Electric has launched its Edge Software & Digital Services Programme ? a complete suite of benefits, support tools and certifications that enables IT solution providers to create a Managed Power Services practice
Formulated in response to the significant growth in edge computing, this new programme enables IT solution providers to establish recurring revenue streams by offering remote monitoring and management of the physical infrastructure across their customers? networks, utilising Schneider Electric?s EcoStruxure IT Software & Digital Services.
This new Edge Software & Digital Services Programme is part of the award-winning mySchneider IT Solutions Partner Programme, formerly known as the APC Channel Partner Programme.
According to Gartner, it is estimated that by 2025, 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed outside a traditional, centralised data centre or cloud. However, because the edge infrastructure is geographically distributed, often with no on-site IT, it invariably requires remote monitoring and management. This paves the way for major opportunities in selling Managed Power Services. Yet, today, just 27% of IT solution providers are offering Managed Power Services.
?The acceleration of edge computing presents an enormous opportunity for IT solution providers to increase their recurring revenue streams by selling Managed Power Services,? said David Terry, vice-president IT Channels, Schneider Electric Europe. ?We have built a comprehensive program for partners that simplifies and speeds up the time required to set up their Managed Power Service practice. This will enable partners to address their customers? needs, through effective monitoring and management of their customers? edge sites, which is now considered a mission-critical priority.?
Core components of the Edge Software & Digital Services Programme include:
Lifecycle rebates ? an ongoing financial benefit for IT solution providers to reinvest in their business
Step-by-step operational e-guide ? ?The Essential Guide to Growing Your Business with Managed Power Services?
Certification paths ? educational courses designed to increase technical and business acumen related to digital remote monitoring software and service options
EcoStruxure IT Software and Digital Services - access to Schneider Electric?s flexible portfolio, offering advanced, 24/7 remote monitoring, and remote/on-site support.
