The software provides a cross-functional solution for understanding the connection between physical infrastructure, IT equipment and the applications that run on them.
As per the agreement, Schneider Electric will acquire the intellectual property, software behind the Viridity EnergyCentre 2.0 platform and the software that enables auto-discovery of IT assets to optimise capacity utilisation at the IT asset level.
