How we work with you
Consultatative
More like
buying a car
● We work with customers directly in early project
phases to develop data center solution concepts
and specifications, based on IT requirements
Standardized,
configurable
● Solutions are typically based on standardized
modular designs
● Small or large projects; new or retrofit
Bid-spec supplier
● Customers engage architects and engineers
Complex,
unique
● Our channel partners bid on component or
subsystem specifications that are integrated by
third parties
● We provide best-in-class equipment as specified
● Solutions tend to be unique, complex, and
time-consuming
More like
building a house
We value both types of relationship and work to
make our customers successful in either case

Why has Schneider made the data center
a high priority?
● Existing customers have identified the data
center as a priority requiring help and
improvement
● We are uniquely positioned to solve data
center problems
● We have more customers to learn from than any
other infrastructure provider
● We have worked 15 years to develop the science of
data centers and have the technology and skills to
solve the customer problems
● We already offer nearly all the different parts
used in the data center and are therefore in an ideal
position to integrate them in ways to add maximum
value

Our vision for the data center business
is simple
Schneider Electric will dramatically simplify the
process of designing, deploying and operating
the world's most predictable, dense and
efficient data centers
The best way to achieve our vision is to provide
integrated, standardized, modular, scalable, data
center solutions

What we’ve learned from our customers:
We can’t get this:
More efficient
More reliable
Higher density
More predicable
More cost effective
More understandable
Simpler experience
… by just making better COMPONENTS:
(UPS, switchgear, controls, air conditioners,
power distribution, etc)
These improvements require standardization,
integration of solutions, and an improved
planning process

Our approach to the problem
● Focus on the improvement of the system, not the
components
● Standardization & Modularity are the key to improving
the availability and agility of data center infrastructure while
reducing total cost
● The data center project process is just as important as
PLAN
the equipment, and must be simplified
