Schneider Electric organizes “SME Connect” in Delhi



Targeted at SME organizations, after Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai, the “5 City SME Connect” event on optimizing IT Infrastructure by Schneider Electric was organized in Delhi. The highlight of the event was to interpret the SMEs’ technology challenges and mitigate those challenges with a systematic approach.


The SMEs in India are working with significant challenges including a limited set of resources and skill, and uptake of technology too. A precise architectural approach is important to mitigate those challenges. The world of work and play is getting increasingly connected and in order to respond to the uncertainties, an optimized infrastructure is essential. Power, cooling, racking and stacking being the basic requirement(s) of any data centre, there has to be a consistent focus on these aspects so that the entire data center caters to the new-age needs.


Keeping the challenges in the mind, the 5 Cities SME Connect event organized a panel discussion on Optimizing Infrastructure to cater to the new-age needs. The key panellists included Naveen Gulati, Sr Vice President & CIO, Lucideus Tech Private Limited; Ranjan Kumar, General Manager – Sales – IT Division, Schneider Electric India; Upkar Singh, Director – IT, Clear2Pay (An FIS Company); Puneet Kaur Kohli, VP – IT & CIO, Bajaj Capital; and Nikhil Kumar Nigam, Head – IT, Amity University, Noida.


Anubhav Sabharwal, General Manager, Schneider Electric India, said, “While the Internet of Things is redefining the way individuals are interfacing with technology and vice versa but IoT actually starts with smart and efficient products. Customers today are seeking best UPS, Precision Air-conditioners, Power Distribution units, circuit breakers, sensors, actuators, motor drives, etc. They come for the best products in those respective categories.

Schneider Electric is changing the energy management paradigm with the launch of EcoStruxure architecture. EcoStruxure architecture leverages advancements in IoT, mobility, sensing, cloud, analytics, and cybersecurity technologies to deliver Innovation At Every Level to the customer right from connected products to edge control, to applications, analytics, and services.”


The final city for the “5 City SME Connect” is Bangalore and will be hosting the event on 21st July, 2017.
