CIOReviewIndia TeamAs data centres today are no less than the integrated systems comprising of different hardware, software and logical connections that work together to facilitate data transmission for business operations, managing of these highly complicated and advanced data centres is becoming very challenging. Enterprises across the world are investing a lot on the DCIM tools and solutions that help them monitor and maintain data centres and take preventive measure to ensure seamless data operations. It is even more evident from the Technavio’s research report which shows that the Global DCIM Solutions market is expected to become USD 4.12 billion by 2023.
