This IDC study presents IDC's datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) market analysis and forecast from 2011 to 2016 in terms of software and services revenue. DCIM enables datacenters to transform into highly optimized and transparent smart buildings, and DCIM solutions are the critical step in gaining visibility, exercising control, and better managing resources.
"The DCIM market is poised to accelerate as enterprises and service providers seek a solution to leverage existing resources to avoid or delay a new datacenter build as well as improve the operational efficiency of the facility. Longer term, DCIM will become a strategic tool that aggregates massive data inputs and supports business innovation." — Jennifer Koppy, research manager, Datacenter Infrastructure
