— DCIM leader invites developers to join open community and build
a best-of-breed vendor ecosystem for DCIM buyers and users —
TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
company providing industry-leading open enterprise-class data center
infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions, has launched its ourDCIM™
Developer Community globally.
The ourDCIM™ Developer Community is an industry-wide grassroots movement
to build an open, best-of-breed DCIM vendor ecosystem for managing and
optimizing physical infrastructure. The community's goal is to:
Facilitate the exchange of information between DCIM, information
technology, IT service management (ITSM), facilities, building
management systems and energy management systems vendors
Expand the coverage of DCIM, providing customers with a truly holistic
approach to infrastructure management across both IT and Facilities,
Advance the continued evolution of infrastructure management technology
iTRACS is inviting vendors, users, and other constituents to join the
community and accelerate DCIM innovation by exploring integration with
the iTRACS Converged
Physical Infrastructure Management®
(CPIM®) software suite.
"Data centers require many different vendors, working in concert, to
provide value to customers. The DCIM world is no different and we feel
it takes an alliance of multiple vendors to help customers manage their
entire infrastructure," said George Brooks, senior vice president,
Enterprise Product and Market Management, CommScope. "iTRACS is
spearheading this effort by making its CPIM platform openly available
for qualified developers. We are inviting the world to join us in a
collaborative journey of innovation that provides increasing levels of
business value to DCIM customers."
The ourDCIM Developer Community is open for registration by visiting https://www.itracs.com/ourdcim-community/.
Qualified members will have access to a portfolio of web services-based
iTRACS CPIMcapabilities, a chat forum and other development
tools. By using these resources, ourDCIM members can develop
bi-directional integrations with the CPIM environment. They can also
begin an alliance with CommScope that, for some companies, could
culminate in becoming an iTRACS Technology Partner through the CommScopePartnerPRO™
LLC, a leading energy management technology provider,
recently leveraged ourDCIM to integrate its EnergiStream®
energy management solution with iTRACS CPIM. The combined power
management and capacity planning solution gives DCIM customers increased
visibility into and command over power usage across IT and facilities
assets that otherwise would not be monitored. Customers can improve
overall energy efficiency while deferring or even eliminating the
capital costs associated with expensive power-related upgrades.
"We found the ourDCIM developer community to be convenient, efficient,
and easy to use," said Michel Kamel, chief executive officer, Melrok.
"It has been a very productive experience for us. The integration with
iTRACS went smoothly, with an accelerated timetable that meant fewer
development cycles. We can now bring iTRACS data into our environment,
and they can bring Melrok data into theirs to provide unprecedented
energy information and management capabilities to customers."
The joint iTRACS and Melrok power management solution will be on display
at the Gartner
Data Center Conference, December 9-12 in Las Vegas.
