Critical Facilities Roundtable Panel: DCIM: Integration and Automation
DCIM – Is that Data Center Infrastructure Management? or Information Management?? What good does real time information do us unless we promptly put it to good use? Can we automate functions like data center capacity planning, cloud workload distribution, HVAC equipment balancing, and predictive facilities operations and maintenance? Can we ever integrate our IT operations with our facilities operations in a way that they can reliably work together as a single system? And, how can DCIM provide a return on investment that will motivate good business managers to move forward with its implementation? This is one of the most controversial issues of our time. Hear from leaders in our industry working on DCIM solutions of tomorrow that may surprise the most experienced of us with integrated and automated concepts and even existing solutions that will dramatically improve of our data center operations.
