Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) is not simply about software, but applying data centre expertise to take positive action. By finding the right blend of software tools, expertise, integration and innovation there is an opportunity to achieve dramatic improvements in performance. This includes enhanced availability by avoiding costly errors such as avoidable downtime from overloaded circuits and hotspots; operational efficiency by removing the guesswork and empowering people with the information they need most; and energy efficiency by optimising not only the environment but the IT itself.
However, there is no magic wand and not everyone has the budget for, nor do we need, all the bells and whistles as nice as they are. What is important is to focus on what is most important to businesses today and develop this into an effective strategy that will continue to add value and functionality.
DCIM can provide the right tools, the right information, at the right time, to the right people all to enable data centre owners and operators to take positive action by unlocking the full potential of a facility to save time and money whilst ensuring uptime.
