Why your IT and facilities management tools need to work together

on ‎04-18-2014 11:43 AM

These days, IT is all about operating at the speed of business; you can’t risk a disconnect between your converged infrastructure management and facilities management teams. When you need to ramp up your server and storage environment quickly, power and cooling have to ramp up just as quickly. What’s more, optimizing resources and lowering operational costs require a comprehensive picture of both your physical and logical infrastructure elements.


Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) tools can address individual elements of your data center IT and facilities infrastructure management. But, as Frost & Sullivan discuss in Delivering the full promise of DCIM through a Converged Management Solution, what you really need is an integrated approach that ends management siloes and disconnected processes. Unlike piecemeal solutions, a converged management solution gives you end-to-end visibility. It delivers sound intelligence so you can better manage capacity constraints, find available resources more quickly, improve capital resource efficiency, better manage your carbon footprint, and shorten lead times for responding to new IT requirements, like cloud and big data.


Because converged DCIM is a major change in the way your critical IT infrastructure is managed, Frost & Sullivan recommend working with a provider like HP that has the resources, portfolio, and expertise to streamline your initiative. HP offers a suite of consulting services to help you along your converged management journey.
