"The future might be blinding bright for Sunbird if they play their cards right."

OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: We have not achieved production functionality yet but overall great!

PROS: Features, ease of deployment with some reservations to importing assets and setting up a db, overall look and feel, automation, precision and wide scope of functionality.

CONS: The process of getting your existing assets in is quite gruelling if you are not using Service Now as your asset management system. Collating and matching data to dcTracks standards is very challenging for the project team. We are going to use your turn key service to ease the process.

"Both dcTrack and PowerIQ products work well and are easy to use."
John Foiles - Principal Engineer
COMPANY:
United Airlines
COMPANY TYPE:
Transportation/Trucking/Railroad
# OF EMPLOYEES:
10,001+ employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
1-2 years
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: We are using dcTrack for inventory control and space management in our new data center. PowerIQ is monitoring our power strips inside the data hall cabinets. The alerting feature informs us right away when devices require immediate attention.

PROS: The Sunbird products work as advertised. Both dcTrack and PowerIQ products work well and are easy to use. The Sunbird website is easy to navigate with lots of helpful features and quick videos. Keeping the device models/templates up-to-date is an easy process.

CONS: The software has very few drawbacks, but he OS is not a standard Linux environment. It looks like an appliance running CentOS and not supported by our internal Linux team.

"Transparency to the datacenter"
Dirk Schröder - System Engineer
COMPANY:
Wacker Chemie AG
COMPANY TYPE:
Chemicals
# OF EMPLOYEES:
10,001+ employees
SOFTWARE USAGE:
1-2 years
OVERALL QUALITY:
COMMENTS: We had to know how much power our Datacenter is using and we had different PDU's in use. Sunbird helped us to integrate all of them in one software product. So we have everything in one view.

PROS: The software is very powerful. Each release brings new features, that are very usefully. With the new dashboards you have only one look to see if something needs attention. In the meanwhile our Datacenter team knows more about the rooms, climate, power consumption than our facility management. The functionality for reporting is very powerful and can automatically sent them to the persons that need it.

CONS: Because the software is so powerful, there are a lot of things you have to configure. As better it's configured, as better are the results. It take some time to set everything up. We took Sunbird to support us and this have been the right choice for us.
