Schneider Electric Launches Edge Software & Digital Services Program for IT Solution Providers 27/04/2021

EcoStruxure Edge Computing ups channel partner

Edge Software & Digital Services Program provides financial benefits, enablement and support for IT solution providers to build their Managed Power Services practice

Rebate provides up to four times greater rewards than offered by traditional hardware rebates

IT solution providers can access to Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure IT Software & Digital Services portfolio, free certification courses, and e-guide on establishing a practice - with potential annuity revenue increases of 1.5-times the initial technology cost

Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announces the launch of its Edge Software & Digital Services Program - 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 program 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 Program is part of the award-winning mySchneider IT Solutions Partner Program, formerly known as the APC Channel Partner Program.

According to Gartner[1], it is estimated that by 2025, 75 percent 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 percent[2] 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, VP 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 Program 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

The business case for building a Managed Power Services Practice

The managed services market has expanded significantly over the past decade, and now represents almost $160 billion in IT revenues managed through IT solution providers.[3] By establishing a Managed Power Services practice, IT solution providers can create new revenue streams by monitoring and managing customers' physical infrastructure assets in their edge environment. This includes the power, cooling, environmental, and physical security assets. In fact, the addition of Managed Power Services adds 1.5-times additional revenue over the lifecycle of the asset. Moreover, IT solution providers can help improve resiliency of these sites with proactive maintenance, and identify hardware refreshes, to help reduce their customers' operational expenses.

To offset the start-up costs, the Edge Software & Digital Services Program includes a Customer Lifecycle Rebate. This initiative has been developed based on feedback from IT solution providers, and rewards mySchneider IT Partners for various actions across the lifecycle of the customer [4]engagement, including attaching, monitoring, servicing and upgrading customer assets.

Resources to help IT Partners build their Managed Power Services

The Edge Software & Digital Services Program gives partners free access to resources including The Essential Guide to Growing your Business with Managed Power Services, a step-by-step guide that enables the smooth development of a managed services practice. The program also offers two new certification paths, tailored to partners' specific focus, whether for reselling software and services or for full-service monitor and management. Both certifications are designed to elevate partners' managed power services competencies, regardless of current business stage and capabilities.

Certified partners have access to an experienced, dedicated Partner Success Manager who will guide them through their development journey and accelerate time-to-revenue. All participants in the program have access to design tools, as well as to Schneider Electric's Exchange Platform, which is an open business platform that connects industry experts and technology partners, to increase competitive positioning and business innovation.
