Sustainability and Rising Energy Prices Drive Renewed Interest in Datacenter Infrastructure Management
This IDC Market Prospective provides guidance for datacenter infrastructure management vendors and managed service and datacenter providers. DCIM solutions are seeing renewed interest as organizations struggle to find datacenter capacity and struggle with the rising cost of energy. DCIM vendors should promote their value on solving sustainability issues while realizing funding projects will come from a hard and verifiable ROI on energy savings.
"With energy costs growing at a rate exceeding record inflation, senior IT leaders are accelerating investment on energy-efficient initiatives," says Sean Graham, research director, Cloud to Edge Datacenter Trends at IDC. "Enterprises are prioritizing DCIM to improve energy efficiency and create additional capacity for digital-first organizations while contributing to sustainability goals."
