It will also support the upcoming strategy of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) for Industry 4.0, which is expected to help Malaysia's economy generate RM2 trillion within the next 7-8 years, creating new jobs and developing talent.”
“Schneider Electric has deep domain expertise and portfolio of tested core solutions for buildings, grid, industry and data center customers and the EcoStruxure™ platform extends our capabilities. We can now help customers efficiently integrate the operational and information technology, receive the key data and analyse it locally to enable smart and profitable operations with insight on the premise or over mobile devices for better risk mitigation from anywhere”, he added.
In addition, Schneider Electric Malaysia also announced its EcoXpert Partner Program for Malaysia, through which it will work with partners in the country to develop talent, create deep skills in the field of IoT and create locally-relevant IoT solutions for the business sector and industry customers.

They have strong skills in the areas of building control, power management and energy efficiency and will offer local expertise and support to address the specific needs or challenges of the shared customers in Malaysia, in an effort to maximize the benefits from IoT-enabled solutions.
