DCIM failed to live up to the early market hype. Tools were over designed and difficult to use.  As a result, vendors are scrambling to differentiate their new offers from the old legacy DCIM.  We hear terms like “Next Generation”, “New & Improved”, “2.0”...  that imply a radically new architecture.  But have they put in the time, investment, and expertise to re-invent a platform that not only addresses the shortcomings of legacy DCIM, but also focuses on the unique challenges of hybrid environments?

In this session, we will describe the capabilities that define next generation DCIM tools for success in the real world. This new platform must leverage technologies like cloud, mobile, open APIs, big data analytics, and Artificial intelligence,  to make a more secure, resilient, scalable, and efficient infrastructure.  We will highlight concrete examples of how next generation DCIM uses these technologies to solve the key pain points.
