Curvature Customer, Schneider Electric, tells Gartner Data Centre and Infrastructure Attendees of their Significant Global Savings embracing Third Party Maintenance (TPM)


Session takes attendees on Schneider Electric’s cost cutting journey funding further IT innovation to achieve greater competitive edge.

CHARLOTTE, United States and RICHMOND, UK, 28 November 2017 - Curvature, the world's largest provider of third-party maintenance and multi-vendor network and data centre IT lifecycle services, opened Day 2 of the London, UK Gartner Summit by co-presenting a session alongside leading customer and advocate of TPM, Schneider Electric. The multinational energy and automation giant mapped out to the audience how they saved $ millions worldwide working alongside Curvature. Schneider Electric outlined their end-to-end journey on how they re-focused IT on providing innovation that boosted competitive edge, while at the back end, focussed on consolidation of multiple OEM support contracts into one moving away from OEM EOL recommendations, instead focussing on extending the life of their hardware assets across the worldwide estate through a Third Party Maintenance (TPM) model.

Dave Kelly, Global Network Operations Program Manager, Schneider Electric, told the 200 attendees in the conference session that successful move towards consolidation had been achieved from the outset through thorough detailed planning for future IT innovation and inward examination of existing infrastructures to ascertain how fit for purpose assets would be in the future. “As a Fortune 500 Global company, we strive to achieve competitive edge through increased productivity and we can only do this through innovation and automation. But at the back end through detailed planning and assessment, we have been able to achieve significant savings to fund this innovation through extending assets and support through one Third Party Maintenance provider, Curvature.”

Glenn Fassett, EMEA General Manager, Curvature, co-presented the session alongside Schneider Electric. “This presentation drew largely from Schneider’s own roadmap and experiences’ delivering a significant cost saving journey tallied at over 46% over 3 years - that helped them to afford initiatives like digitalisation and IOT.”
