Posted 03.03.16 in DCIM Strategy by Nlyte Software

DCIM enables the data center to make the best use of the physical resources available, as well as enabling the seamless integration of the data center into the enterprise’s other business management solutions for asset management, process management, data management, capacity planning, budgetary planning, and other important systems.

The Strategic Importance of DCIMInformation is the most strategic asset and competitive differentiator that an organization has. The data center floor is the producer of that strategic value. DCIM is the manager of that data center floor, consisting potentially of hundreds of millions of dollars in assets, as well as billions of dollars in information that flows through that data center.

The DCIM Stakeholders
Four functional categories have a direct interest in DCIM. The first, of course, is the IT organization, which consists of individuals who spend their entire careers keeping the data center operating. A close second is the facilities organization, which must supply power and cooling as well as maintain building infrastructure, in support of data center operations. Thirdly, the finance department is keenly focused on the costs of maintaining the data center infrastructure, and how those costs compare with the business value delivered by the data center. Finally, the executive team must understand the positive impact DCIM can have on their corporate management tasks,especially in regard to today’s increased focus on IT costs.
