Schneider Electric is recognized worldwide as an essential business that provides service continuity to critical infrastructure, such as hospitals, data centers, IT networks, temperature-controlled food supply chains, energy, transportation, and water cycle management
In the future, digitized energy systems may be able to identify who needs energy and deliver it at the right time, in the right place and at the lowest cost. But getting everything right will not be easy. Overall, the year 2020 marked the culmination of the decade of digital transformation, while 2021 will define the beginning of the decade of smart transformation and intelligent automation, with AI-based solutions already progressively permeating all industries.
“This year we’ve been challenged to do things differently, to think in a disruptive way, and to find solutions to issues never previously addressed. The new reality has also imposed different patterns of behavior on us all. And IT is taking over industrial operations”, says Ksenija Karić, CEO of Schneider Electric Serbia and Montenegro, adding that the architecture of industrial automation has done a good job of advancing industry to where we are today.
Her advice for industrial facilities is for them to build a competitive advantage by focusing on the implementing of digital solutions if they want to experience the benefits of such a transformation in terms of higher speed, waste reduction, and energy efficiency.
“Our company has developed solutions that help customers achieve the norms of the industry of the future. To achieve the promised benefits of the next generation industrial environment, underlying technology infrastructure designs will need to incorporate and support industrial stakeholders who prioritize investments leading to innovative software and services that enable the gathering and analysis of data, rather than to traditional hardware”, adds Karić.
Schneider Electric has curated insights from experts and the finest minds in the healthcare industry to develop a complete solution for hospitals – the EcoStruxure for Healthcare platform, which provides consistent energy for hospital equipment. The main characteristic of this system is that you make data-based decisions and optimize resource availability in all healthcare infrastructure—power distribution, IT, and HVAC
On the other hand, our new reality and the continuing coronavirus crisis has also prompted Schneider Electric to focus more on the solutions used in medical facilities. The application of IoT solutions in hospitals is of great importance, while power supply reliability is essential.
“Uncertain situations and crises highlight the importance of using emerging technologies and innovations in healthcare systems. To ensure best-in-class patient care at all times, it’s mandatory for healthcare facilities to have a resilient, sustainable and future-ready ecosystem”, says Karić.

“We plan to dedicate ourselves to this business segment in the coming period, and will be happy to join any initiative that aims to increase the efficiency of hospital systems”, says Karić, noting that Schneider Electric – together with the Development Center for ADMS in Novi Sad – is one the biggest IT companies in Serbia, as well as being a leading company in the digitization and automation of energy solutions.
