This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of 15 vendors participating in the datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) market.The IDC MarketScape is an evaluation based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assesses providers relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in a given market during both the short term and the long term.
"DCIM is a collection of tools to increase the visibility into and control over datacenter resources from the critical facilities layer up through to the IT management layer. The providers in this space approach these management challenges in different ways. As organizations investigate a software-defined approach to IT architecture, the inclusion of solutions such as DCIM that enable visibility through the critical facilities layer should be considered. This research uncovers the breadth and scope of the providers' offerings and their strategies for enabling datacenter resources to be viewed as pools of resources to enable greater agility and flexibility." — Jennifer Koppy, research director, Datacenter Trends and Strategies
