Take part in Schneider Electric Innovation Day 2021 on demand
The Schneider Electric 2021 Innovation Day virtual event is available online for those who missed out. Featuring a line-up of local and international speakers, Innovation Day united thought leaders from around the world and across industries to discuss and deep dive into how digitisation can be used to drive business growth and operational stability.
Speakers included conservationist and polar adventurer Robert Swan, digital analyst and anthropologist Brian Solis, author and lecturer at Oxford University Rachel Botsman, and Executive Vice President of Secure Power at Schneider Electric Pankaj Sharma, who each provided insight into:
- how digital technologies will power a more sustainable and resilient future;
- building trust through digital transformation; and
- the role of sustainability leadership to keep companies relevant.
“Digitisation empowers us to gain our edge, stay competitive and thrive in the new normal. The potential is undeniably tremendous, especially in delivering environmentally added value to our customers,” said Sharma.
“Today, sustainability is crucial to enterprise viability. With a proper strategy in place, digitisation can deliver a clear path to business growth while minimising impacts on the environment.”
Prior to the event, Joe Craparotta, Pacific Vice President of Secure Power and Segments at Schneider Electric, said, “The journey to sustainability begins with digitisation. Business and IT leaders need to see this as an opportunity to build resilience into their strategy, allowing their company to move towards goals such as net-zero energy and net-zero carbon. While these ambitious targets were once markers of a sustainable business, they are now markers of a smart business.”
Participants were able to learn about the latest solutions from Schneider Electric, such as the Galaxy VL and the EcoStruxure Micro Data Center 43U, as well as take on practical sessions covering the latest on how to implement tomorrow’s solutions today. There were also breakout sessions and networking opportunities for IT and data centre professionals, IT solution providers, facility managers, electrical consultants and contractors.
