DCIM Software: Adventures in ROI

Datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) software is often described as one of the most powerful and productive technologies that can be applied in the modern datacenter. But deployment can be difficult, and the benefits are not always easily understood or measured. For these and other reasons, it remains a controversial and under-deployed technology. To better understand the issues, we developed an ROI framework for DCIM software.
