Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) has been discussed in data center conferences and media. It is a set of tools and methods to make a data center as a whole perform optimally. Simply put, DCIM deals with mechanical and electrical systems of facilities, and power and environmental information of IT equipment. No standards have been defined yet but several functional areas have been mentioned, such as Inventory, Change, Capacity, Simulation, Monitoring and Efficiency Modeling. Many vendors have emerged with various solutions that focus on one or a few areas but not on a holistic scale. So the integration of multiple tools will be necessary to satisfy the overall needs and some vendors are working together to integrate their solutions.

But equally important is how to manage IT equipment at a higher level, such as server health, and application and service status. This is the market segment known as system management. Although DCIM and system management have been developed independent to each other, it is increasingly necessary to integrate the two to manage a data center even more efficiently. The information obtained with system management functions will become crucial to control the infrastructure sides of facilities and even IT equipment.

In this panel session, we will review DCIM solutions and how they can be integrated with system management for better design and operations of data centers. We will also discuss the impact of such integration, such as management and organizational structure. But at the same time, we need to realize that the ultimate goal of having a data center is to satisfy business goals of an enterprise with IT infrastructure, such as server health and applications status. That is why it is utmost important to integrate both IT and Facilities under common management to plan, design, monitor and control. Join this panel as these thought leaders discuss how you can use DCIM to best manage the facilities and IT within your data center.

  • Using HP ALM Within a State of the art DevOps Framework Using HP ALM Within a State of the art DevOps Framework Philip Howard, Bloor Research and Josh Taylor, CA Technologies Recorded: Apr 30 2016 53 mins
    HP ALM offers a great tool for managing and executing tests, and can form the cornerstone of a solid DevOps framework. However, DevOps involves far more than just tooling.

    This webinar will demonstrate how to import BPM models to CA Agile Requirements Designer and further convert them into an active flowchart. Optimized tests can thereby be derived directly from the BPMs, bringing the business and IT into close alignment and eliminating manual effort. If the BPM changes, difference and dependency analysis and can be used to identify its impact on the system, automatically updating test assets.

    Featuring Philip Howard of Bloor Research, this webinar will show you how the right tooling, processes and culture can fully automate testing, and how testing can be embedded within a success DevOps pipeline, driven by the design phase.

    By attending this demo, you will understand:

    - Why traditional testing techniques might not be suited to DevOps, with manual test design and maintenance creating delays and allowing an unacceptable number of defects

    - How a requirements driven approach can eliminate many of the testing bottlenecks within a DevOps framework, while avoiding the “information hops” which degrade quality

    - How to automate test case design, data provisioning and maintenance, building a re-usable library of test components to accommodate rigorous testing within a DevOps framework
