Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has evolved to guide the management of data center assets, their environment, and overall operations. In this paper, we discuss how Raritan’s DCIM software can be integrated with existing ITSM software to increase efficiency and reliability.
In this eBook, 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.
Sensors are an easy to install, cost-effective way to reduce energy costs, improve reliability, and increase capacity for future data center growth. But most managers do little beyond monitoring the temperature by checking the thermostat reading on the wall.
“Who owns the DCIM solution?” and “How can IT and Facilities work together to ensure the operations of a data center and that corporate objectives are met without impacting individual goals?”. In this eBook, we explore the different roles and responsibilities of each as they relate to decision making and daily operations within the data center.
With the current state of the economy, IT executives are being asked to stretch their budgets in order to keep their businesses profitable. In 2008, Median IT spending per user fell to $6,667 from the previous year's $7,397, according to Computer Economics. This represents a 6.2% reduction, consistent with the fact that IT managers were supporting an increasing number of users without corresponding increases in IT spending. IT spend continued to decline in 2009 and uncertainty and caution is still prevalent in 2010.
