What is a DCIM? What is the confusion around the terminology present in the market?

 

For more than 10 years, the DCIM concept has emerged from the need to approach concepts such as a holistic vision, IT & Facilities converging, or energy efficiency in the Datacentre environment …

The market has matured, the datacentre is increasing importance within companies as a single entity and the current challenge of the managers is the service delivery. Applications are more and more related to the business and with high exigencies in times and availability.

Therefore, the concepts mentioned above are obsolete giving way to concepts such as Datacentre Management Optimization (DCMO) to reach DCSO (Datacentre Service Optimization).

Outside of terminologies that can sometimes be confusing, datacentre managers seek to improve the management of available resources to optimise the delivery of key services for the business and the continuity of companies.

It is with this management that we must seek for the convergence, the holistic vision and the efficiency that we mentioned before. The three main pillars in which we should act are processes, people and technology.

Since the beginning, Bjumper works closely with our customers, listening and understanding their needs to help them in this way that although it is not short and easy but is essential for the future of the datacentre. Beginning with the operational framework definition, working with people in the methodology and unifying sources of information through technology already in place today, in success stories that reflect this Business-oriented 4.0 Management Model.

The road must begin with this unification of information sources under convergent technology, this is what a DCIM solution allows us today. Services begin in the infrastructure and we cannot omit the importance of that ecosystem.

That is why we would like to give you a small sample of what the Datacentre Management Model 4.0 means for Bjumper.

In a visual format below you can see a small video explaining some of the capabilities that the technology puts at our disposal and that together with the application of processes by teams of trained people give us the basis of the optimisation of the delivery of services.
