How to pick your software partners

Whether you are the CEO, CTO, or a project owner, a lot is at stake when selecting software partners. Implementing the wrong software, or even deploying good software the wrong way, can set your business up for failure before you even get started.

Choose your digital partners carefully.

“In the industrial sector, where software frequently requires deep domain expertise, the quality of the support users get when acquiring subscription software can dramatically impact the outcomes they get from the software.” ARC

Not all software is created equal and not all software providers have deep domain expertise in industrial operations. When selecting a software partner, ask about:

  • Trusted and proven domain knowledge in your specific industry
  • Flexible and scalable software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions
  • Seamless dataflow across the entire lifecycle—from design and build to operate and maintain
  • Federated data that enables you to unlock the power of the connected industrial economy
  • Integrated and intuitive user experience across systems
  • Fully combined artificial intelligence and digital twin capabilities
  • Extended reality (virtual, augmented, and mixed reality) and data visualization
  • Smart analytics onsite, in the cloud, and remote
  • Ecosystem of collaboration partners
  • World-class industrial services

Shaping your future

“Future factories will be high-tech, software-driven engines of customized mass production. They will be more automated, more connected, and integrated, and more information-intensive than ever before. They will be organized for greater speed, flexibility, productivity, and efficiency. The people who work in them will have advanced skills and technical competency with the ability to work cross-functionally across the connected enterprise.” Manufacturing Leadership Council
Industries of the future will be highly agile and flexible operations powered by data-driven insights. The complete value chain will be digitally connected with a seamless experience—from e-commerce front ends to inventory tools, plant floor systems, digital supply chains, and partner company systems.

Current notions of cost point, time to implementation, efficiency, and sustainability will be completely transformed.

The technical evolution for industry will accelerate and the next evolution, Industry 5.0, will be about the way we live with our environment. It’s going to be about machine to machine, people to machines, and people and machines to the environment.

Will your industrial business be part of the eco-efficient, agile, and resilient industries of the future?

As a world leading impact company and a global manufacturer with an end-to-end network of smart factories and smart distribution centers, including five designated by the World Economic Forum as Advanced Lighthouses and two as Sustainability Lighthouses, Schneider Electric is on a mission to make industries of the future eco-efficient, agile, and resilient through open, software-centric industrial automation.

Seizing the digital opportunity – an industrial software action plan

Industrial enterprises are under pressure to adopt a digital-driven approach for their operations and for interacting with markets, customers, and the world around us.

Information is the new currency

The primary resource of a modern society is knowledge. Data, when contextualized and combined with human insight, can be elevated to highly valuable, actionable information.

Getting smart with advanced technologies

Influential organizations are adopting artificial intelligence (AI), prescriptive analytics and digital twins to improve their processes and products and strengthen their competitive positions.

It’s time for universal automation

Until now, the industrial world has worked with closed proprietary architectures and hardware-dependent applications. Yet, in a software-driven world, interoperability is essential.

The green future of industrial sustainability

Achieving sustainable operations is one of the most important challenges that manufacturing and process industries have ever faced.
