While many who invest in Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software benefit greatly, some do not. Research has revealed a number of pitfalls that end users should avoid when evaluating and implementing DCIM solutions. Choosing an inappropriate solution, relying on inadequate processes, and a lack of commitment / ownership / knowledge can each undermine a chosen toolset’s ability to deliver the value it was designed to provide. This paper describes these common pitfalls and provides practical guidance on how to avoid them.
Avoiding Common Pitfalls of Evaluating and Implementing DCIM Solutions
An effective and well-implemented Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) system helps operators safely maximize the efficient use of power, cooling, and space capacities now and in the future.
