iTRACS, a CommScope company that develops data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) offerings, this week introduced its ourDCIM Developer Community globally.

The company describes it as 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, and

* Advance the continued evolution of infrastructure management technology

“Data centres require many different vendors, working in concert, to provide value to customers,” said George Brooks, senior vice president, enterprise product and market management, at CommScope.

“The DCIM world is no different and we feel it takes an alliance of multiple vendors to help customers manage their entire infrastructure.”
