The Evolution of DCIM 3.0

Sept. 20, 2022
Rich Miller and Kevin Brown of Schneider Electric discuss the evolution of DCIM 3.0 and sprawling hybrid IT infrastructure.

We live in a world where data centers have no boundaries. This modern distributed environment, dominated by the cloud, edge computing architectures, and the demand for constant connectivity, has created new challenges for IT leaders. The need to maintain 100% uptime, protect against cyberattacks, and deliver on promises to provide more sustainable operations is forcing business and technology leaders to look at their digital infrastructure differently. In order to make informed decisions around their digital infrastructure, today’s IT leaders need more visibility into performance, efficiency, uptime, and their infrastructure than ever before. Can DCIM software live up to the task?

Unfortunately, legacy data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software was not created to address these modern challenges. To deliver on the resiliency, security, and sustainability that customers demand, leaders need to evolve the way they monitor, manage, plan and model their physical infrastructure. They need to deploy modern DCIM software to measure and manage data center assets.

In this webinar, Data Center Frontier’s Editor in Chief Rich Miller will discuss the evolution of DCIM 3.0 with Kevin Brown, Senior Vice President EcoStruxure Solutions for Schneider Electric.

During the webinar, you’ll:

  • Learn how to address the unique challenges of sprawling hybrid IT infrastructure
  • Discover the benefits of a modernized DCIM approach
  • Understand the three waves of DCIM and how the industry is onto a new evolution
  • Learn how you can take action now (ride the wave versus getting caught up in it)

The video includes a question and answer session that was recorded during the live webinar.

Featured speakers include:

Rich Miller, Editor-in-Chief, Data Center Frontier

Kevin Broan, Senior Vice President, EcoStruxture Solutions, Schneider Electric
