How DCIM Helps Resolve data center management issues

“A data center infrastructure management (DCIM) system collects and manages information about a data center’s assets, resource use and operational status.”

DCIM tools that provide this information in a meaningful manner increase Data Center, IT and Facilities Management situational awareness, allows the Data Center Operator to make informed strategic operational decisions, and provides useful information for future investments and planning.

In this white paper, we review the most critical problems faced by data center managers today, and how DCIM solutions provide real-time views of the data center environment, infrastructure assets and their associated power, space, and
energy capacity to resolve these issues.
