How to Get the Best Return on Your DCIM Investment

Posted on March 30, 2015 by Michael Bord

As with any technology investment, a business owner should examine the return on investment (ROI) before making a purchasing decision on a Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution. There are innumerable white papers and articles that point to the fact that DCIM – a solution that helps to address the infrastructure management needs of the data center - has a remarkable ROI. When a DCIM solution is properly implemented and managed, it saves hundreds of man-hours and helps maintain high availability, both of which increase business profits.  

However, it is important for data center operators to understand that DCIM will not fully transform a data center overnight.  It takes time, effort, and commitment from various stakeholders throughout the organization to reap its full benefits.  But, that doesn’t mean that there won’t be some immediate benefits.  Here are three primary areas in which DCIM can provide a phenomenal ROI from the start.
