Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) is the integration of information technology (IT) and facility management disciplines to centralize monitoring, management and intelligent capacity planning of a data center's critical systems.
Achieved through the implementation of specialized software, hardware and sensors, DCIM enables a common, real-time monitoring and management platform for all interdependent systems across IT and facility infrastructures.

The Trellis™ Dynamic Infrastructure Optimization Platform
Delivering Confidence through Connection
MAINTAIN. MAXIMIZE. OPTIMIZE
There’s a simple golden rule for IT and facilities organizations: Make the right decisions to maintain high availability, maximize efficiency and optimize the use of existing capacity. But in the modern data center, this is easier said than done. Constant change, complex infrastructure and rapid growth demand IT and facilities work together to keep the data center running at peak performance.
With a data-driven architecture as its foundation, Aperture Configuration Manager is the single source for information (reporting and analytics) on the data center infrastructure—providing organizations with visual management of the equipment, space, power, cooling and port connectivity. It automates configuration management processes as they relate to the data center and integrates the required data center configuration repository into the organization’s overall configuration management database (CMDB).
Wikipedia defines Data Center Infrastructure Managementor (DCIM) as “the marriage of information technology and data center facility management disciplines”.
We define it as a simplification of your life in and out of your datacenter. DCIM is a system management platform that addresses the management and monitoring of your physical assets in the datacenter. It takes a disciplined approach to managing the Physical Layer of IT with the goal of improving the quality of data provided to management, reducing the time required to provide this information and most importantly keeping your budget in the black.
