IDC: Driving Measurable Business Benefits Through Datacenter Asset Life-Cycle Management

May 3, 2017

Putting into place a proactive data center asset life-cycle management protocol can reduce data center costs, increase the ability to respond to new business needs faster, and mitigate risk and downtime. IDC research indicates the costs associated with extending the life cycle of servers beyond three years are higher than the costs to refresh.  

Beyond the financial benefits, the proactive management of data center infrastructure can improve performance and agility, limit exposure and risk because of downtime, increase visibility to comply with regulatory and compliance audits, and rightsize the data center based on actual consumption metrics for overall efficiency. This IDC paper quantifies the wide range of benefits realized through proactive data center asset life-cycle management, and discusses the methods for realizing these benefits.
