According to the “IDC MarketScape:Worldwide Datacenter Infrastructure Management (DCIM) 2011 Vendor Analysis” report*, CA Technologies performs well in the business capabilities and strategies criteria, and specifically in the areas of growth strategy, innovation and employee management. The report also states that CA ecoMeter is capable of deployment in large-scale organizations and service providers and that it is an easy product to maintain and manage day-to-day.
“As new models such as cloud, outsourcing, hosting, colocation and traditional IT challenge the datacenter’s normal mode of operation, organizations will need to keep some level of orchestration between IT and facilities,” said Michelle Bailey, research vice president, Enterprise Platforms and Datacenter Trends, IDC. “CA ecoMeter is well suited to help organizations with their DCIM initiatives to increase uptime, cut utility bills and reduce waste.”
“IDC’s assessment highlights CA Technologies leadership position in DCIM, an area that is becoming increasingly important to organizations with data center operations,“ said Terrence Clark, general manager, CA ecoSoftware, CA Technologies. “Innovation in DCIM accelerates the convergence of IT systems and data center facilities, enabling infrastructure to operate more reliably and efficiently, while delivering greater agility in the provision of IT and business services.”
