IDC MaturityScape Benchmark: Smarter Datacenter Facilities in the United States, 2018

Author: Jennifer Cooke
Research Director, Datacenter Trends and Strategies

Abstract

This IDC study presents the results of IDC's 2017 Smarter Datacenter Facilities MaturityScape Benchmark Survey and should be viewed as a supplement to IDC MaturityScape: Smarter Datacenter Facilities 1.0 (IDC #US43209417, November 2017). Together, these studies provide a comprehensive view of IDC's maturity model for smarter datacenter facilities. This document enables company executive leadership, facility managers, and IT managers to:

  • Assess their current level of maturity regarding their datacenter resources
  • Benchmark their maturity against their peers
  • Uncover areas for improvement to achieve datacenter transformation or modernization goals

"U.S. organizations have made good progress in adopting intelligent critical infrastructure to gather datacenter telemetry, much like how consumers with fitness goals are using health monitoring devices today. But the real work has yet to be done to harness the value of this data and drive better outcomes," states Jennifer Cooke, research director, Datacenter Management. "IDC believes that organizations that commit to transforming their datacenter resources will be much better prepared to support new initiatives, protect data, and shift to a services-focused IT model."
