What benefits does participation in a cross-industry ecosystem offer?
As cross-industry ecosystems are becoming more strategic for both partners and customers, we’ve partnered with IDC to look at the key attributes of the best digital place to collaborate and scale at speed.
According to IDC’s latest Info Snapshot, suppliers that have a strong ecosystem, provide a marketplace environment, and offer compelling services are well positioned to support partners as they transform and evolve their business. IDC’s 2020 survey reveals that 73% of partners view the availability of a marketplace as a high-priority attribute when considering which vendor to work with.
The ecosystem and marketplace platforms can enable successful business transformation and customer collaboration – but not all of them are set to give the opportunity to produce and deliver tangible solutions as a result.
Schneider Electric Exchange, our open ecosystem for IoT energy management and automation solutions, was created with the belief that innovation doesn’t happen in the vacuum. Our ambition is to orchestrate a digital, future-ready partner ecosystem that further enhances and accelerates partners’ ability to work together across geographies and industries.
Consider the benefits:
Ecosystem participation itself already enables partners to discover and connect with your business based on capabilities, coverage, and expertise.
Enhanced co-creation opportunities with partners and customers allow you to explore new domains and create new solutions in energy management and automation.
Effective collaboration allows you to maximize the utilization of existing skills and capabilities by surfacing talents within a wider market of opportunities.
Scaling at speed enables you to reach new customers, build new partnerships, and access new markets quickly and efficiently.
