Datacenter Dynamics NYC Mar 13, 2013 has a panel that you should stick around for.
PANEL: MAKING THE DATA CENTER TALK - DCIM EVOLUTION AND IMPLEMENTATION
At its core the purpose of Data Centre Infrastructure Management is to provide a more thorough view of the operations that drive DC costs and functionality. Hardly surprising then that the market has seen an explosion in DCIM solutions coming to market. However, has this resulted in a catch-all term that creates confusion rather than clarity? Has the end-user been left behind as vendors find ever more classes solutions, metrics and monitoring? Our panel of seasoned experts will draw on their wealth of experience to clarify what DCIM really is and how you can gain a substantial ROI with the right strategy.
