Siemens jumps into DCIM

Siemens launched a Data Center Infrastructure Management solution branded Datacenter Clarity LC which 'bridges the gap between IT and facility management.' 

This is Siemens' first DCIM offering as the firm increases its focus on the data center. The company is working with long term partner Maya Heat Transfer Technologies which owns the Clarity brand.
“Not many companies can match us when it comes to providing and integrating all of the technologies and services needed for today’s data centers,” said John Kovach, Siemens’ new Global Head of Data Centers.  “We truly believe that we are the only company that can provide such a broad foundation of proven experience.”

Siemens’ is positioning itself around integration and management capabilities across an entire portfolio of technologies within an enterprise, and a data center-specific software suite built upon Siemens Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software.
The Siemens PLM software has more than seven million licensees deployed globally, many in mission critical industries. NASA used the software to digitally design, simulate, analyze and assemble the entire Mars Rover Curiosity, contributing to a successful landing on Mars this past August, the firm said.

 “While other companies are trying to piecemeal or patchwork disparate platforms together, we’re able to come in with a complete, proven, scalable platform based on proven technologies already being used in the field,” explained Kovach.  “And when you consider our global depth and expertise, you’ll see that Siemens is one of the few companies with the technical capability to successfully execute in any data center environment – almost anywhere in the world.”
