This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape methodology to provide an assessment of 10 vendors participating in the datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) market. The IDC MarketScape is a vendor assessment tool designed to compare vendors' current capabilities and strategies relative to one another and to the factors that IDC believes will be most conducive to success in the DCIM market. This evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters that assess vendors relative to one another and to those factors that will contribute to success in the DCIM market in the short and long term.
"DCIM solutions can help organizations manage the growing complexity within their datacenters and cope with the increasing pressure to be more agile in provisioning IT. The adoption of 3rd Platform has led to evolution of datacenters at a much higher pace than the organization's ability to transform their processes," Ambica Pruthi, senior market analyst, Enterprise Infrastructure Team, IDC Asia/Pacific."
