A study to better serve the IT and Facilities teams in charge of managing infrastructure within global data center and enterprise environments
San Luis Obispo, Calif., USA. (PRWEB) December 26, 2012
Cormant Inc., a software development company specializing in data center and IT infrastructure management solutions (DCIM), announced today that, due to a lack of information regarding the barriers to DCIM adoption and implementation among organizations still hesitant to purchase and deploy a DCIM solution, they conducted a study to better serve the IT and Facilities teams in charge of managing infrastructure within global data center and enterprise environments. While the specific basic barriers uncovered in the questioning of data center, network, IT, and facilities management personnel are not out of the ordinary or contradictory to industry norms, the percentages and order of the barriers uncovered certainly is.
Over the past two years, as the DCIM market has grown out of the realization that there needs to be a better solution to the management of IT infrastructure and supporting facilities infrastructure than stove pipe solutions and spreadsheets, along with the explosion of environmental monitoring options, there have been many articles written about why DCIM fails or the myths and common misconceptions of DCIM. However, few, if any of these articles have dealt with what was truly holding organizations back from purchasing and deploying a DCIM solution.
Beginning with the understanding that DCIM is still a relatively new solution within the IT world, and definitely a new solution insofar as bridging the gap between IT and Facilities management groups, the test group was defined as those individuals within enterprise, government, military, educational, and non-profit responsible for the evaluation, procurement, deployment and usage of DCIM. The test subjects were asked the following question: “What are the 3 biggest hurdles/barriers to DCIM adoption & implementation?” The results along with an analysis can be found in the report here.
