Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) tools are as diverse as they are voluminous, but only a small subset of commercially available applications can – or at least claim to – provide visibility into assets that span both physical and virtual IT systems (servers, storage, networks, etc.), as well as facilities or in-building infrastructures (electrical components, cooling, air conditioning, temperature sensors, etc.).

The recent proliferation of cloud services, and the rush among telcos to provide them, leaves the DCIM market potentially on the verge of tremendous growth. Various forecasts suggest the penetration of DCIM solutions is still in the single digits among data centers that still handle asset management in Excel spread sheets, with some predicting that sales of DCIM software could top $1.7 billion by 2016, up from $450 million in 2013.

Despite, or perhaps because, it is so widely anticipated as a substantial growth market, the DCIM landscape is extremely turbulent. Some vendors are on the verge of bankruptcy, others are seemingly in hibernation until economic conditions improve and the rest jostling within a series of alliances, acquisitions and new market entries, and all fighting for market share in an increasingly volatile commercial arena.

A significant portion of the hundreds of billions of dollars cloud services are forecast to generate in revenue annually by 2016 will fall into the pockets of telcos and dedicated cloud service providers delivering IaaS, PaaS and SaaS workloads to businesses and consumers. This will drive ongoing center consolidation and optimization initiatives designed to reduce opex and boost cloud service profit margins in the data centers hosting those services, in support of which converged DCIM platforms will play an important role.

In recognition of the burgeoning commercial opportunity, DCIM vendors will increasingly tailor, or merely market, their wares specifically to support cloud service provision in both hosted cloud service provider environments and on-premises and hybrid infrastructure favored by large corporates. This will focus on expanding virtualization support from the VM to the virtual application layer, and integrating automated processes able to dynamically reconfigure physical and virtual assets when pre-defined thresholds are reached without manual intervention.

DCIM Evolves to Meet Cloud Service Delivery Requirements looks at what telcos and cloud service providers most want from DCIM platforms, comparing their requirements against the tools vendors deliver and examining the barriers to adoption that may deter many from making what will likely be a considerable financial and logistical investment in deploying them. Customer implementations indicate that the majority of installations remain in the enterprise sector, reinforcing the sense that DCIM software must adjust its proposition before it can drive further into the telco data center. All the major DCIM vendors are profiled, offering a short summary of their product and sales approach and differentiation strategies, followed by a prediction of how market demand and competition will pan out over the next 12 months.

Sample research data from the report is shown in the excerpts below:

  • Modern DCIM solutions stack up pretty well against telco and cloud service provider data center management requirements in some respects – but not others – with many platforms still evolving and others remaining immature. Most are capable of providing centralized asset monitoring and management from a single software console, lending them the ability to identify and track thousands of systems and components deployed in data centers, spanning both facilities management and IT estates. Converged platforms deliver information on systems configuration, their relationship to other components, as well as status and location, and monitor workflow in accordance with Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and similar IT industry frameworks.

  • Companies profiled in this report include: CA Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: CA); Emerson Network Power, a division of Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE: EMR); FieldView Solutions Inc.; iTRACS LLC, recently acquired by CommScope Inc.; Nlyte Software Ltd.; Panduit Corp.; Power Assure Inc.; Rackwise Inc. (OTC: RACK); Raritan Inc.; Rittal Corp.; Schneider Electric SA (Paris: SCHN.PA); Sentilla Corp.; and Siemens AG.

DCIM Platforms Are on the Verge of Tremendous Growth, Heavy Reading Finds

 

Despite a turbulent market, DCIM platforms are at the cusp of tremendous growth, says Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider

Jun 19, 2013

BOSTON, June 19, 2013

The Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) market has massive growth opportunity, but it has a lot to live up to and the market is turbulent, according to the latest report from Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider, a subscription research service from Heavy Reading .

DCIM Evolves to Meet Cloud Service Delivery Requirements looks at what telcos and cloud service providers most want from DCIM platforms, comparing their requirements against the tools vendors deliver and examining the barriers to adoption that may deter many from making what will likely be a considerable financial and logistical investment in deploying them. Customer implementations indicate that the majority of installations remain in the enterprise sector, reinforcing the sense that DCIM software must adjust its proposition before it can drive further into the telco data center. All the major DCIM vendors are profiled, offering a short summary of their product and sales approach and differentiation strategies, followed by a prediction of how market demand and competition will pan out over the next 12 months.

"DCIM tools are as diverse as they are voluminous, but only a small subset of commercially available applications can provide visibility into assets that span both physical and virtual IT systems, as well as facilities or in-building infrastructures," says Martin Courtney, research analyst with Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider and author of the report. "The recent proliferation of cloud services, and the rush among telcos to provide them, leaves the DCIM market potentially on the verge of tremendous growth."

Despite, or perhaps because, it is so widely anticipated as a substantial growth market, the DCIM landscape is extremely turbulent, Courtney says. "Some vendors are on the verge of bankruptcy, others are seemingly in hibernation until economic conditions improve and the rest jostling within a series of alliances, acquisitions and new market entries, and all fighting for market share in an increasingly volatile commercial arena," he continues. "A significant portion of the hundreds of billions of dollars cloud services are forecast to generate in revenue annually by 2016 will fall into the pockets of telcos and dedicated cloud service providers, driving ongoing center consolidation and optimization initiatives designed to reduce opex and boost cloud service profit margins in the data centers hosting those services, in support of which converged DCIM platforms will play an important role."

Key findings of DCIM Evolves to Meet Cloud Service Delivery Requirements include the following:

  • The DCIM market is beset by mergers, alliances and companies succumbing to competitive and economic pressure.
  • Single-digit DCIM penetration rates stem mainly from the enterprise sector.
  • Telcos and cloud service providers must control physical and virtual IT assets alongside space, power and cooling resources to optimize cloud service delivery.
  • Most DCIM solutions fall short of cloud service provider needs but are evolving to include greater visibility into the virtualization layer and dynamic configuration processes.
  • Barriers to adoption include high implementation costs and integration challenges.
  • IBM's partnership with Emerson Network Power will cause major disruption in the DCIM market.

DCIM Evolves to Meet Cloud Service Delivery Requirements is available as part of an annual single-user subscription (six issues) to Heavy Reading Service Provider IT Insider, priced at $1,595. Individual reports are available for $900 (single-user license).
