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.

  • Analyzing Buyer Behavior at the Speed of Business Analyzing Buyer Behavior at the Speed of Business Chris Selland, HPE, Mike Foster, Qlik, and Jay Hakami, SkyIT Recorded: Apr 28 2016 51 mins
    In retail, understanding which products will be hits or misses requires constant data collection and sharing among suppliers, retail stores, the wholesale business, and dotcoms. But even with open collaboration and cooperation, how can retailers collect varying data sources from each link in the omnichannel chain, run high-performance analytics, and visualize those results to truly understand buyer behavior?

    Join Sky I.T. Group, leaders in multi-source point-of-sale data collection, validation and analytics, as they share how their SKYPAD solution enables retailers and wholesalers to gain rapid insight into consumer sales trends. Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Qlik will also share how their underlying technologies -- the HPE Vertica Analytics Platform and QlikView data visualization – power the SKYPAD solution to capture more business and deliver these dramatic improvements over SKY I.T. Group’s former database platform:

    •70% reduction in time to load various forms of data
    •90% reduction in disk storage
    •50 to 500 times faster query and report execution
    •Zero system downtime or "batch windows" needed
    •Significant reduction in total cost of ownership
    •Fast implementation that leverages existing database knowledge

  • When Bad Things Happen to Good Data: Plan For and Achieve Business Continuity When Bad Things Happen to Good Data: Plan For and Achieve Business Continuity Jon Toigo, Chairman, Data Management Institute Recorded: Apr 27 2016 48 mins
    High Availability doesn’t trump Disaster Recovery and there is nothing simple about creating a recovery capability for your business – unless you have a set of data protection and business continuity services that can be applied intelligently to your workload, managed centrally, and tested non-disruptively. The good news is that developing such a capability, which traditionally required the challenge of selecting among multiple point product solutions then struggling to fit them into a coherent disaster prevention and recovery framework, just got a lot easier.

    Join us and learn how DataCore’s Software-Defined Storage platform provides the tools you need and a service management methodology you require to build a fully functional recovery strategy at a cost you can afford.
