FREMONT, CA: The combination of Schneider Electrics’ StruxureWare Resource Advisor technology with Windows Azure cloud platform will provide customers the ability for developing customized, cloud-based energy management and sustainability software for customers across multiple industries, reports Ryan Huang, ZDNet.

StruxureWare Resource Advisor is an enterprise-level cloud-based software application that allows the access to data, reports, and summaries to drive customer energy and sustainability programs securely.

By deploying Struxuware Resource Advisor on the Windows Azure, the application offers global reach and low cost of entry as software tools can be scaled faster, duplicated and rolled out worldwide along with local language support. The elimination of installation and maintaining additional on-site IT infrastructure results in reduced costs. It has the ability to influence installed investments with secure cloud connectivity, to existing onsite facility energy metering, monitoring and building management systems. Employees have increased mobility to access information anywhere. Its flexible system architecture is based on open standards and protocols, thus promoting systems integration.

Pascal Brosset, Chief Technology Officer, Schneider Electric, says, “We are seeing a major shift in the industry away from one-size-fits-all solutions, and the cloud-enabled capabilities of the combined StruxureWare Resource Advisor and Windows Azure technology allows us to deliver right-sized tools based on customer’s specific energy management needs.”

The first StruxureWare Resource Advisor development on the Windows Azure platform created the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) Higg Index 2.0, a tool that helps retail organizations standardize how they measure and evaluate environmental performance of apparel products across the supply chain.
