According to Gartner, data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tools and processes will be mainstream in IT management by 2014 — but enterprises seeking to implement these solutions will face three critical challenges:
Asset Point is a comprehensive solution for data center infrastructure management. Asset Point visualizes, models, plans and tracks all data center equipment with an understanding of the surrounding environment. The Asset Point device library includes thousands of devices with a built-in understanding of how these devices are configured, how much they weigh, how much cooling is required, port/connection capability, how much power is required as well as redundancies and dependencies. This allows planners to have a full "virtual" visual model of the data center prior to making any changes; allowing them to understand how changes affect reliability, business continuity and capacity available to support new equipment. Further, Asset Point for DCIM is an integrated component into the IT ecosystem, providing bi-directional data to existing systems, assuring the information may be shared with 3rd-party applications like service desk, directory and a CMDB.
Since 2000, Asset Point has relocated & optimized over 120 data centers, encompassing nearly 1,000,000 square feet, 25,000 cabinets holding more than 350,000 assets.
