The Rise Of The Extended Enterprise In Today’s Digital Economy


The concept of an “extended enterprise” – that is, a network of partner relationships – is not new, according to Jean-Pascal Tricoire, CEO and Chairman, Schneider Electric. A single company cannot operate successfully in a silo to serve its customers best. 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.
