Company Offers Expertise in Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Vendor Selection and Deployment Best Practices to Bolster Adoption in 2015
SAN MATEO, CA and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM- John Wiley & Sons, publisher of the world’s best-selling For Dummies® reference series, and Nlyte Software, the world’s leading software company developing solutions for automating the management of data center infrastructure, today announced the availability of “DCIM for Dummies.” This new title clearly outlines what data center professionals need to know to derive maximum value when selecting, integrating and deploying an infrastructure management solution.
Over the last several years, DCIM has become a strategic investment for optimizing resource usage in data centers. In a 2014 report, research firm Gartner said, “DCIM should be a requirement in all major data center builds and renovations,” so it should not be surprising that prospective adopters have been searching for guidance on DCIM to enable them to get started.
As the primary driving force behind the DCIM industry for more than 10 years, Nlyte was ideally positioned to work with Wiley & Sons to create “DCIM for Dummies.” The guide is designed to set expectations about DCIM, offer insights into an organization’s unique challenges, share an objective process for vendor selection and capability prioritization, and discuss how best to integrate DCIM into business practices for change management.
“We have been providing leadership to the DCIM industry for more than a decade and have helped hundreds of companies improve the efficiency and reduce the costs of operating a data center,” said Mark Harris, vice president of Strategy at Nlyte Software. “Through this experience, we learned that data center professionals could benefit from a primer on how to get started with DCIM. We created ‘DCIM for Dummies’ to share our working knowledge of data center operations strategies and the best practices to realize maximum impact from more automated data center operations.”
