DCIM: From fragmentation to convergence — Uptime Institute Symposium Speaker Series

http://youtu.be/WwzxWCaCR0Y

There’s no question that the cost and capacity demands of today’s high-density computing environments require a greater level of visibility and control than ever before. And data center infrastructure management, or DCIM, is a critical integrating technology that fills the need for real-time information. But just as data centers are evolving, DCIM technology is evolving even faster. Simple tools with monitoring capabilities are developing into sophisticated control systems, and asset systems are evolving into auto-populating configuration management systems. How much can DCIM do? And where does it go next?
