Impacts and Recommendations

  • DCIM for the majority of the production environment is one of the top technology projects large enterprises plan to invest in for 2014, but DCIM providers must take into consideration regional differences
  • Large enterprises with definitive strategic plans for their data centers are more likely to consider DCIM a top investment priority for 2014, making them a key target market for DCIM providers
  • The influence different roles have over product selection and budgets differs in organizations that plan to invest in DCIM for 2014 and those that don't, so DCIM providers should vary their marketing strategy as well
