EMA Quantifying Data Center Efficiency- Achieving Value with Data Center Infrastructure Management

May 3, 2017

Data centers are expensive – ridiculously expensive.  In the past, data center costs were just accepted as the price of doing business. After all, IT services and the facilities that support them are the cornerstone of any modern business operation and integral to driving both productivity and profitably.

The core of the problem in tackling the cost issue is the lack of visibility into your data center environment, or – if you are collecting infrastructure details – the information is too complex for you to rapidly and accurately analyze and take action.

And yet, research shows that companies are getting visibility and results, including:

  • Reducing energy consumption and related costs by 42% through server consolidation
  • Reducing replacement of unnecessary hardware by an average of $20,000 per year using continuous monitoring and alarming
  • Reclaiming 5,000 of FTE time with automated asset and inventory data collection

This report by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) shows that a Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) system can provide all the centralized monitoring and management processes necessary for enabling informed decisions on optimizing configurations, improving reliability and reducing costs.
