Leveraging DCIM Solutions to Improve Data Center Infrastructure Metrics
IT professionals have always struggled to define metrics that are both relevant to the business and accurately represent the performance of the infrastructure. Until recently, incorporating data from critical components into the data center infrastructure framework has been challenging because data has been stored in multiple locations and formats. Today, businesses are overcoming this challenge by adopting Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solutions that store critical infrastructure data in one location. Professionals now have even greater amounts of data at their fingertips. Their ability to filter the noise and present meaningful information will allow IT leaders to demonstrate business value, develop a culture of continuous improvement, and align priorities and performance incentives with business strategy.
This webinar provides guidance on how to:
1. Create a framework for setting metrics
2. Distinguish between planning and performance metrics
3. Evaluate DCIM solutions and determine the best solution for the business
