Increase in Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Sales

23rd, September 2013

The market for data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions has seen sales slowly grow after the initial hype when products first appeared on the market in 2008/9.

There are numerous DCIM products many from start-ups backed by VC’s.  There is evidence that only a handful of players will eventually dominate this space. The top three DCIM manufacturers in 2012 (by revenue) include Emerson Network Power, Nlyte Software and Schneider Electric with combined sales of $193m representing 45% of the total market value.

It is also clear that the DCIM market is changing, in particular this software is becoming non-optional for many data centre operators. DCIM sales cycles can be extended and many companies generally do not deploy the entire DCIM suite from day one.

Workspace Technology, the UK’s leading independent Data Centre design, build and management specialist, is strongly positioned to take advantage of this upturn in demand for DCIM solutions.
