Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)
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.
Listed below are some of the DCIM solutions that we offer.

About Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM)
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.
