Research suggests that cloud-based Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and other offerings have considerable potential to deploy less energy and natural resources, such as through the reduction of hardware requirements for software development testing. This environmental benefit – coupled with greater collaboration and efficiency – can reduce a company’s overall carbon footprint, part of a transformation Schneider Electric refers to as “Life is On.” By offering a cloud option, Schneider Electric advances its “innovation at every level” philosophy, which is at the core of everything the company does.
