Maturing Solutions Allow Integrated Physical Management Of The Data Center

    Why Read This Report

    This report is part of the data center infrastructure playbook and should be read by IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals. Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) is a comprehensive approach to managing the physical aspects of the data center. DCIM is the convergence of previous generations of purely facilities-oriented power management, physical asset management, network management, and financial management and planning solutions for data centers. If used properly, DCIM solutions can help I&O professionals address steadily ratcheting pressures to meet business SLAs, lower costs, and improve resource and energy efficiency and long-term facilities planning. The steady drumbeat of escalating requirements will drive DCIM offerings rapidly, with increased integration with other enterprise management tools. I&O groups will have to become adept at matching their requirements to the rapidly changing offerings but will need some form of DCIM solution to remain competitive.
