Next-Generation Datacenter Management: From DCIM to DCSO

Analyst report by 451 Research, published on 2/11/2014

Sometimes described as the operating or ERP system for the datacenter, datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) technology helps operators manage their facilities more effectively. Current DCIM products are powerful, but their capabilities are increasingly pushing beyond the definitional scope of DCIM, including further up the IT stack and beyond the datacenter walls. This report describes a new overarching category of software that 451 Research is calling datacenter service optimization (DCSO), which is inclusive of DCIM yet extends beyond it. Independent DCSO functions include datacenter business planning, costing, energy resource management, and converged physical/virtual datacenter management. In the market for datacenter management systems, the shift from DCIM to DCSO reflects an evolution toward a more service-oriented and business-oriented view of datacenters.
