Data Center Infrastructure Management
The data center as a competitive asset? It is possible!

DCIM : the data center as a competitive asset

62% of data centers need to be rebuilt or relocated, while over 60% of companies are planning to adopt a holistic approach to managing their IT infrastructures by 2014… Everything points to the need for IT Departments to take a fresh look at their data center management. Bull suggests taking an innovative approach that draws on best  ractice and state-of-the-art tools.

The advent of dedicated software suites and the implementation of more efficient and effective processes open up whole new opportunities for the data center. Faced with unprecedented energy challenges, including rising prices, EU driven regulations (the NOME Law) and evolving multi-party debates, a new approach is being mapped out that takes account of the issues of the data center in its entirety:

• The management of floor space, power supplies and cooling;
• Cutting electricity consumption;
• Capacity management;
• The need to take sustainable development imperatives into account;
• Improving energy efficiency;
• Compliance with government regulations.

Bull : supporting your DCIM initiative
In order to implement the right DCIM solution for each existing Data Center and organization, Bull Advisory Services has developed a staged approach to supporting these kinds of projects, by functional levels. Once the inventory – the essential starting  point for any project – has been brought up to date, ‘quick wins’ are used to kick start the transformation process and gradually increase skill levels. So the DCIM tool becomes not only a target but also a support for the project, by enabling processes to  evolve: for example, the management of hardware coming into and being taken out of the Data Center…

Bull can take responsability for integrating CA Technologies’ solution CA DCIM itself, and has developed a dedicated know-how.
