    Data center uptime
  • Energy consumption savings

    One key to unlocking business value in data centers is to consume less energy without sacrificing reliability. These two goals are no longer contradictory, thanks to the digital transformation of energy management and automation. New software management tools bring sweeping visibility and control over enterprise-wide energy consumption.
  • Energy cost savings

    The cost of energy touches every part of the economy, but it especially impacts the data center industry. Decreasing the cost of energy has become a strategic differentiator pursued through renewables, demand response and other digitally driven approaches.
  • Increased productivity

    In data centers, space is precious. Companies are looking for ways to do more computing with smaller footprints. Digitally transformed data centers can accommodate more density because tools now exist to manage the complexity. By bringing assets under the digital umbrella of data center infrastructure management, IT managers can maintain full visibility and control.
  • Data center uptime

    Data center managers are on constant guard against downtime. Outages can result from cybersecurity breaches, extreme weather and human error. And outages can be extremely costly. Digitally transformed data centers stave off downtime through predictive maintenance and enhanced visibility. The data center becomes a more nimble, agile space where IT managers can see obstacles coming and dodge them easily.
