1. Describe your community(s) and how you decided to start a community or grow/change it? (user request, Khoros suggestion, internal idea, etc.).
We wanted a way to make our support more collaborative and provide easier self-service so that our entire industry could move faster into the digital and Industrial IOT space. We also knew a lot of knowledge and expertise was trapped inside our network, and within Schneider Electric itself.

2. Tell us about how you made it happen? Did you stage it first? Who got an early look? How did you drive adoption? Did you get executive buy-in? Did you have any key iterations?
Mandated by our Chief Digtal Officer, we have designed an open business platform that houses our Khorospowered Community combined with a developer corner and a marketplace. We have started to drive adoption with existing partners and customers product support and business development teams.
