Schneider Electric has announced that for the third consecutive year it has been positioned by Gartner as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Tools for its StruxureWare for Data Centers software suite.
Schneider Electric believes this recognition underlines its ability to deliver an integrated, flexible and innovative DCIM solution suite, as exemplified by the launch of new cloud and colo capabilities earlier this year.
‘Emerging forces such as Internet of Things, convergence, everything-as-a-service and cloud are driving data centre complexity and increasing costs. Ensuring that data centres deliver maximum ROI – no matter their environment – requires flexible, connected, intelligent and data driven operation,’ said Kim Povlsen, vice president and general manager, Digital Services & Data Center Software, Schneider Electric. ‘We believe being recognised for the third time as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for DCIM speaks to the breadth and depth of Schneider Electric’s DCIM suite, including the recently released cloud based StruxureOn and colo specific StruxureWare Data Center Operation 8.0. These solutions harness the power of IoT and bridge the gap between IT and facilities to empower data centre managers with the asset visibility, capacity planning capabilities, risk management and predictive maintenance functionality needed to increase efficiency and reliability.’
Gartner’s extensive review process is based on 15 evaluation criteria measured by ‘completeness of vision’ and ‘ability to execute.’ With StruxureWare for Data Centers, Schneider Electric believes users can more easily monitor and analyse infrastructure to maintain the integrity of the data centre to reduce downtime risks and maintenance costs while increasing and optimising operational performance.
