Instead, a successful corporation depends on an ecosystem of partnerships, including suppliers, system integrators, and innovation partners such as universities, startups, technology alliances, and more. For Schneider Electric, this extended enterprise ensures that Life Is On everywhere, for everyone, and at every moment.
