What are the Components of DCIM?
Software for Data Center Infrastructure Management
A DCIM solution provides accurate and meaningful information about your Data Center’s assets, resources used, and operational status – from the lowest level in the power chain to the highest level – in an integrated fashion.
A comprehensive DCIM solution is comprised of components that provide:
Open and Compatible for Easy Integration
Integration Tools such as APIs that enable the integration between 3rd party CMDBs and ticketing systems.
A good DCIM architecture has the flexibility to adjust to user needs, makes it easy for the user to do their job, and has the right components necessary to solve real-world Data Center issues. It can leverage and integrate with existing data (e.g. CMDB, BMS), tools like service desk, help desk and ticketing systems, and reporting systems.
