One of the most stressful moments in managing data centers is realizing the status quo isn’t working anymore. Perhaps the spreadsheets and other manual methods are falling further and further out of sync with the assets and theirs status in data centers. Perhaps there is a Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution in place but it isn’t performing as promised. Or perhaps there is not even a tool in place to begin with. The reasons why things aren’t working may vary, but the end result is almost always a waste of time, money and resources. Instead of throwing in the towel or throwing good money after bad trying to make do, now would the perfect time to re-assess the status quo and consider the next generation of DCIM solutions that are proven, easier and robust.
