Webinar: 5 reasons why DCIM has failed

This webinar was broadcast on Wednesday 15 July 2015. Watch now!

Historically, DCIM systems have over-promised and under-delivered. Vendors have supplied complex and costly solutions which fail to address real business drivers and goals. Yet the rewards can be vast and go well beyond better-informed decision-making, to facilitate continuous improvement and cost savings scross the infrastructure.

  • Though I may not be able to join, this is an interesting debate. Please post a summary, any communities where this discussion can be expanded, and/or contacts for clarifications. In my opinion, the under-delivery stems from a rush to offer software solutions prior to establishing common structures and practical usage options beyond existing capabilities (e.g. environmental monitoring). The industry has also failed to establish the fundamental intersection between IT monitoring and control (e.g. DMTF) and infrastructure monitoring and control (e.g. BACnet). For example, "hot spot" and "bottleneck" detection, and a combined IT and infrastructure automated mitigation activity. Instead, the current solutions can tell you is "it's hot here" and "you're very busy here". Proprietary solutions to this exist in some form but have limits to applicability in a heterogeneous environment. If the industry is to realize the advantages, we need a uniform approach supported be common standards and protocols (e.g. ECMA 400IT)
