London, United Kingdom – Schneider Electric™, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation has won two categories at the prestigious 2022 Storage, Digitalisation and Cloud (SDC) Awards. Schneider Electric secured awards in the ‘Futureproofing Initiative’ category for its Schneider Electric University, an industry-leading professional education platform that helps to bridge the data centre sector skills gap.
Schneider Electric and its Elite Partners, Advanced Power Technology, also secured a second award for the ‘Cloud Transformation/MSP Project of the Year’ category. Together the companies deployed Schneider Electric’s open and interoperable data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) platform, EcoStruxure™ IT, to deliver increased IT resilience and uptime for the Birmingham Women and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust via a dedicated remote monitoring solution.

To date, the Schneider Electric (SE) University has delivered more than one million courses to over 650,000 data centre professionals, with +180 countries represented by its global user base. Its curriculum addresses key focal points for the industry including critical power and renewables and offers guidance on how to optimise data centre designs to drive resilience, energy efficiency and sustainability.
Cloud Transformation/MSP Project of the Year
In collaboration with its Elite Partners Advanced Power Technology (APT), Schneider Electric received a second award for ‘Cloud Transformation/MSP Project of the Year’. Together the companies provided the Birmingham Women and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust with a dedicated remote monitoring solution via Schneider Electric’s EcoStruxure IT platform – offering real-time decision-making, increased resiliency and uptime for its distributed IT, data centres and critical backup power systems.
The use of EcoStruxure IT Expert software replaced the Trust’s manual-inspection regime for more than 100 of its uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), which were distributed throughout the hospital to safeguard healthcare equipment and patient data. This transformed the resilience and reliability of its critical IT systems.
“I’m delighted to accept these awards on behalf of Schneider Electric, which exemplify both our work with partners, and our mission to upskill and futureproof the data centre sector,” said Marc Garner, Vice President, Secure Power Division and Major Pursuits Team, Schneider Electric UK & Ireland. “Ecosystem collaboration is essential to solve customer IT challenges, and it's an honor for our company to have helped support the crucial work of the Birmingham Women and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.”
“It’s excellent to be awarded for our work within the data centre and critical power spaces, and all the more so for a customer whose work makes such a difference to so many people’s lives on a daily basis,” said John Thompson, Managing Director, APT. “The installation of EcoStruxure IT Expert software has given the IT staff at the Birmingham Women and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust complete peace of mind that their IT, data and healthcare infrastructure is protected and safe from the impact of downtime.”
