How to Take Control of Your Ever-Changing Data Center

DCIM software helps remedy workflow Ever since computers were first used for business tasks, the specific needs of each application combined have dictated the size, capacity, and specific configuration of the computing environment. As your business grows and the number of computing projects increases to manage your business, your data center infrastructure needs to grow and evolve as well. Because challenges and opportunities differ from one business to another, your computing resources have evolved in their own way.

To meet the new application needs of your business, your data center is constantly changing. Equipment is added or removed regularly. Older equipment is exchanged for newer, more powerful or more cost-effective machines. At times, data center change can be sweeping and disruptive. After a few years of ad-hoc changes combined with normal employee turnover, it isn’t surprising that no one can tell you exactly what equipment exists, why or where it is installed, who owns it, or even what it does.

Data centers that have grown haphazardly as requirements have shifted and have often become massive structures that are difficult to support. All too often, Band-Aid fixes to problems are short term and leave the underlying structural and ongoing management problems untouched

The demand for ever-increasing data center performance has driven the evolution of increasingly powerful solutions. Today’s data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions can help you manage change – change within the facility and also the workflows for the business of IT.

Take a look at DCIM and the steps that can lead you down the path of adopting better processes and realizing more benefits over time.
