Schneider Electric Recognized for Strong Contributions in the Smart Buildings Market

BOSTON, Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, has captured the spotlight in the coveted leader category in Verdantix's Green Quadrant IoT Platforms for Smart Buildings 2019 report. To better assist Facility and Real Estate Directors in their strategic planning, Verdantix interviewed hundreds of business leaders across multiple segments and compared the abilities of 13 IoT Platforms for Smart Buildings.

Verdantix calls Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure™ for Buildings "one of the most comprehensive products" profiled in the report and considered several key strengths and differentiators when positioning it in the Leaders quadrant, including its:

  • extensive partner ecosystem of more than 3,000 EcoXperts and the Smart Connector integration framework
  • digital IP backbone - a critical foundation for any smart building that drives efficiency in deployment and maintenance, services, and future-readiness
  • powerful integration and control at the edge, enabling connectivity at scale, and enterprise services
  • robust development framework for customers

"Considering all supplier offerings assessed in the Green Quadrant analysis, we believe that Schneider Electric should be included on shortlists by the following buyers: large firms in commercial real estate, hotels and hospitals; firms with in-house skills to build their own applications on top of the platform; and firms with global building assets," said Dennis Callaghan, Principal Analyst, Verdantix.

Occupant Well-being, Cost Reduction and Space Utilization to Drive Real Estate Strategies for 2020
Verdantix identified three key priorities from their interviews with more than 300 global real estate and facilities teams: occupant well-being, cost reduction, and space utilization. These priorities are largely driven by the need for talent, the requirement to drive down operational costs, and the need to maximize square footage efficiency.

"To truly improve occupant well-being, reduce costs, and better utilize space, building stakeholders must have access to data and the ability to analyze that data for better decision making," said Laurent Bataille, Executive Vice President of the Digital Energy Division at Schneider Eletric. "Our job as industry leaders is to provide the right digital infrastructure to capture, access, and analyze the data so our buildings are ready for whatever the future holds."
