Analyst(s): Henrique Cecci, Jeffrey Hewitt, Steve Ohr, Jay E. Pultz, April Adams, Rakesh Kumar


Key Findings

  • Data center managers recognize that power and cooling represent major challenges, and that data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and related tools can effectively help minimize these challenges.
  • More than 60% of the data center managers Gartner recently polled will have implemented DCIM and related tools at some point by 2013, with penetration climbing to 60% by 2015.
  • DCIM is likely to be self-funding; the cost of the tools is likely to be offset by the savings in power costs DCIM helps enable.

Recommendations

  • Make DCIM a mandatory requirement for all major data center builds and refurbishments.
  • Architect the integration of IT operations management, building management systems and DCIM.

TESTIMONIAL
“Accurate asset records have given us a 50 percent gain in efficiency in terms of locating an asset's physical location within the data centers. dcTrack leads us through each step of the process to fulfill a new server request."

Joseph Keena,
Manager of Data Center Operations,
Shands HealthCare

TESTIMONIAL
“Once the IT equipment gets delivered to us, we then go do the physical racking, connecting, labeling -- and then come back and close out the request in dcTrack, which notifies LANDesk that the equipment is ready to go.  This process makes it easier to make adds and changes, and improves the accuracy of our asset inventory."
