April 30th, 2012 | Technology Times | No Comments
STAFF REPORT LHR: APC by Schneider Electric, a global leader in integrated critical power and cooling services, has published a new White Paper on How Data Centre Management (DCIM) Software Improves Planning and Cuts Operational Costs. The document demonstrates the ability of data centres to help businesses respond more quickly to changing market demands and mark a significant growth on the bottom line.
According to Uptime Institute, a division of the 451 Group, the market for data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) systems will grow from $500 million in 2010 to $7.5 billion by 2020. Forecasts indicate that challenges of higher-density computing, dynamic workloads and the need for efficient energy consumption will drive the demand for software to help organisations plan, operate at low cost, and analyse systems for workflow improvement.
Furthermore, Uptime Institute suggests IT and business executives are aware that improved physical infrastructure planning, minor system reconfiguration, and small process changes can save significant financial spend on energy and operations. However, only higher visibility, more control, and improved automation can help deliver on the commitment of producing business value.
The new Planning and Implementation tools share key data points, historical data, and asset tracking information. It also develops the ability to charge back users allowing them to take actions based upon data centre business intelligence.
