Reduce costs and improve performance with data centre infrastructure management. DCIM is the convergence of IT and building facilities functions within an organization. The goal of a DCIM initiative is to provide administrators with a holistic view of a data center’s performance so that energy, equipment and floor space are used as efficiently as possible.
Data center infrastructure management started out as a component of building information modeling software, which is used by facilities managers to create building digital schematic diagrams.
Data Center Infrastructure Management began before it even had a name when dedicated areas of a building were assigned to house the physical assets necessary for computer systems and servers, network, cabling, and data storage. It became clear that better methods of monitoring for heat and cooling, capacity and usage, and rack or cabinet space were needed.
DCIM continues to move towards more practical management processes that migrate many functions of the data center past its own walls to align with overall corporate goals. In observing the expanding role of data center integration into the entire enterprise.
Connectivity is an important element of an office. Every office has a wireless (WiFi) capability, but in most cases the spread and distribution of WiFi connectivity is not always configured or planned correctly. As we all carry some type of smart phone or device, an office needs to be BYOD ready, (Bring Your Own Devices). Configuration of the wireless access points are to be configured properly by allowing for multi-zone capability.
