Schneider Electric unveils channel programme for managed power services

Schneider Electric has unveiled its ‘Edge Software and Digital Services Program’, a suite of financial incentives, support tools and certifications for IT solution providers to create managed power services practices.

The new program, created in response to the significant development of Edge programming, will enable IT solution providers to establish recurring revenue flows through remote monitoring and management of data center infrastructure using Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxureIT Software and Digital Services.

“Edge computing presents an enormous opportunity for solution providers to expand their service portfolio to address power and cooling infrastructure especially as these sites have become mission-critical,” said Jamie Bourassa, Vice President, Edge Computing and IT Channels, Schneider Electric.

“Starting a new service practice takes time, resources and commitment to education and business development. The level of effort will vary according to the partnership and may take 3,500 hours to establish a managed IT services business based on the feedback of the managed service providers. We have created a segment, for all partners, that facilitates access to managed energy services and helps them earn income quickly and in the long run. ”

The market for managed services continues to expand over the last 10-12 years. It will now represent about $160 billion in IT revenue managed through IT solution providers. By establishing a ‘Managed Power Services’ practice, IT solution providers can create new revenue streams by monitoring and managing customers ’physical infrastructure resources in their marginal environments, including power, cooling, environmental and physical protection resources.

According to Snyder Electric, powered power services add 1.5 times more revenue to a lifetime of added assets. After that, IT solution providers can help improve the resilience of these sites with active maintenance, identify hardware refresh, and reduce operational costs for the convenience of customers.
