Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure: The Innovation Driver of The Economy

It is the age of ‘Smart enterprise’. The ever growing thrust for innovation and dynamic technology is bringing disruption every second. In this scenario lies the need for enterprises to continuously innovate and build an ecosystem with more operational efficiency, sustainability, asset performance and people productivity.


This challenging task calls for leveraging the magic of automation. Today, technology has the power to augment business operations by leveraging the power of connectivity, data and automation, more specifically the internet of things (IOT). However, creation of such platforms and solutions require tremendous research, expertise and experience. French multinational, Schneider Electric, is constantly working to deliver new age solution for businesses to leap forward in the most profitable and more importantly, sustainable fashion.

Vouching on the imperative factors of safety, reliability, efficiency, sustainability and connectivity, EcoStruxure is an open, interoperable, IoT-enabled system architecture and platform that provides connected products, edge controls, apps, analytics and services by leveraging the advancements in IoT, mobility, sensing, cloud, analytics and cybersecurity.

For India to develop as a key global player the adoption of technology is critical across key industries including manufacturing, infrastructure, grid, smart buildings to IT. EcoStruxure renders itself useful across all these different sectors.

The sky is the limit they say, however, urban infrastructure with sky high buildings, proved it otherwise. The vertical growth of a building doesn’t necessarily make it smarter. The urban population and electricity usages have increased the need for smart buildings and reliable grids. Combining robust software with hardware innovation to connect everything from sensors to services over one IP backbone, EcoStruxureTM offers a platform which makes smart, easy to achieve. The consumer today is looking not merely for power, but ‘quality’ power. You need to maximise electrical system uptime, ensure good power quality, reduce your overall energy consumption and control how much you pay for energy. On a bigger scale, the country needs reliable and efficient power via smart grids and monitoring. EcoStruxure Power supports with this.

EcostruxureTM in grid aims to drive Grid transformation by making it Smart. Smart Grid helps reduce the duration of outages by locating them faster with the help of its real-time information. Smart Grid Analytics facilitate efficient operations and predictive maintenance.

Today’s energy-dependent world that is collectively aiming at attaining decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitisation, for a New World of Energy, utilities need to constantly keep innovating and evolving. Accordingly, IoT-enabled (Internet of Things), Smart Grids can provide a framework allowing the promise of IoT to be realized via innovation at all levels, maximising energy efficiency and sustainability. Besides others in the private and public sectors, companies such as Schneider Electric are innovating and working to boost the efficiency, reliability, availability and sustainability of energy systems through Smart Grids.

The 21st century Industrial revolution is in its prime productivity phase with maximum automation. Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is offering unprecedented possibilities, making it the most exciting time for the industries to grow further. Ranging from mining to food and beverages, every business requires efficiency. It involves operational efficiency with smart and customized machine control solutions, well designed and controlled process automation, an important aspect for workers security and Cyber security solutions, which has started to gain traction in the recent years.

EcoStruxure Plant and Machine, hence, plays a huge role in delivering the potential of these industrial companies, backed by years of extensive research and expertise.

Lastly, all this use of technology advancements and digitisation is of no use, if it’s not protected. EcoStruxure IT protects critical information and data, by ensuring that your data centre’s physical infrastructure can adopt quickly, to support both future demand in the cloud and at the edge.
