Energy management architecture portfolio

Schneider Electric's EcoStruxure is to integrate with IBM's Intelligent Building Management Solution (IIBM).


Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure solution architecture will integrate IBM’s Intelligent Building Management Solution (IIBM). EcoStruxure is Schneider Electric’s comprehensive active energy management architecture portfolio that connects five domains of business expertise—power, data centers, process and machines, building control, and physical security—within an open and flexible technology architecture. IIBM will integrate with the EcoStruxure architecture, using energy analytics to identify sources of energy waste in buildings due to inefficient equipment operations. Energy waste can now be attributed to specific building assets. The complementary technologies provide energy intelligence with automated fault detection and diagnostics to continuously identify improvement in energy consumption. Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure architecture leverages IBM Maximo Asset Management software to increase building systems’ reliability and make the building maintenance and repairs more cost-effective. For the first time, building owners and operators have a consolidated view of operations and management information to optimize energy efficiency and deliver high-performing buildings.
