Schneider Electric Simplifies Management of Distributed IT Infrastructure at the Edge
Schneider Electric is always looking to add value and functionality to its EcoStruxure IT platform. Early in 2020, we saw the launch of the monitoring and dispatch services to manage distributed IT. Most recently, the company has introduced a new public API to further simplify management of compute, storage and network infrastructure at the edge. IT solution providers can now leverage the EcoStruxure IT Expert Application Programming Interface (API) to seamlessly integrate a power and infrastructure monitoring platform into their existing remote monitoring and management (RMM) systems for better visibility across IT systems.
Edge Computing Management is only Growing in Complexity
The IT landscape has transformed into a hybrid architecture with many geographically distributed edge computing sites. In fact, Grand View Research predicts that the global edge computing market will reach USD 43.4 billion by 2027. As organizations evolve through digital transformation, many will leverage automated, real-time applications, which will further increase their reliance on edge computing sites.
The EcoStruxure IT Expert API builds on the success of EcoStruxure IT Expert, the industry’s first hosted power and infrastructure monitoring platform, which is vendor-agnostic and powered by artificial intelligence. Now enhanced with new public API capabilities, the platform keeps increasing its flexibility. For example, users can maintain a local data store and build custom applications that react to changes. With this increased access to energy and infrastructure resource data, users can make changes to increase efficiency and sustainability.
