Managing a data center is not easy.
Today’s data center professionals must maintain uptime, improve sustainability, increase the efficiency of capacity utilization, and boost the productivity of people in more complex and more distributed environments than ever before.
Legacy management tools like Excel, Visio, and homegrown systems no longer get the job done for the modern data center. They are hard to use, difficult to maintain, time-consuming, and error-prone.
First-generation Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software vendors marketed their products as a panacea to all data center problems, but their overhyped products did not deliver as promised. Because of the failures of these legacy DCIM products, some data center professionals still hold the belief that DCIM software is just smoke and mirrors.
However, the emergence of second-generation DCIM has changed everything, fulfilling the promises left unkept by first-generation counterparts. Innovative data center professionals are realizing the enormous potential of modern DCIM software and report high satisfaction ratings and fast ROI.
Rave reviews are now common, such as:
“DCIM really is for us a source of truth for the tens of thousands of bare metal assets that we have in our global data centers.” – Tim Putney, Workday
“I’m excited to get to work every day because I know I’m going to be working with dcTrack!” – Dennis Hayslip, Lockheed Martin
“A game changer for data center management.” – David O’Hara, MacStadium
In this eBook, we will highlight ten real-world enterprise customer stories of how modern data center managers are realizing enormous benefits and dramatic ROI with 2nd Gen DCIM software.
