Schneider Electric has appointed 15-year telecommunications industry veteran Rajesh Thangaraj as Edge Solutions Evangelist of its Secure Power division in Australia.

Thangaraj joins Schneider Electric from Woolworths Group where he was the lead consultant for IoT/AI product solution engineering and responsible for developing the company’s IoT ecosystem strategy and product roadmap.

Thangaraj also previously held roles at Synnex Australia, Huawei and across the telecommunications industry.

Schneider Electric says the Edge Evangelist position was newly created in response to the high demand for Edge deployments across its channel partner ecosystem, and Thangaraj will be responsible for “engaging with Schneider Electric’s near 4000-strong Australian channel partner network to accelerate their adoption of Schneider’s Edge solutions”.

Commenting on the appointment, Joseph Vijay, General Manager of Channels, Alliances and Operations for APC by Schneider Electric, said: “We’re excited to have Rajesh join us and drive our investment in Edge solutions at Schneider Electric. Research shows us 57 per cent of mobility decision makers have put Edge computing on their roadmap for the next 12 months.”

 “Working with Rajesh, our partners and customers can ensure these designated ‘Edge’ sites are truly designed to support the required workloads and that the skills and systems are in place to manage them.”

“Edge is revolutionising the industry with its promise to support enhanced human experiences and business transformation. As Australia increases its uptake of AI, 5G and other data-intensive projects at the Edge, our clients want designs and solutions that go beyond just “compute”. Rajesh brings a wealth of technical and commercial knowledge and experience that will help clients and partners achieve speed to market with safer, simpler and future-proofed Edge solutions.” said Vijay.

“I’m passionate about disruptive technologies, new ideas and new ways of thinking. I’ve long considered Schneider Electric to be a leader in this space and I am excited to join the team in Australia,” said Thangaraj.

“McKinsey & Company has identified 100+ Edge use cases globally; and estimates a potential value of over $200bn in Edge hardware sales over the next five years. If Edge is deployed in the right way it will complement rather than compete with any current cloud strategy and I am eager to support our channel partners with their Edge journey.”
