Avoid wasting time and money procuring and implementing dcim


To often, the pursuit of Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) benefits leads to a procurement and implementation process that takes too long, software that costs too much, and the tools often under-deliver. Organizations frequently fail to define business requirements for DCIM and evaluate options in a holistic and consistent framework. This webinar can help provide insight into why those outcomes occur and how to avoid them.

  5. 5. 5 ©  2015   Uptime   Institute,  LLC SCENARIO:  Large  Financial  Company • Sent  out  a  lengthy  RFI:  Developed  a  set  of  questions  and   asked  vendors  to  provide  answers.   • 14  qualified  vendors:  40  people  on  each  two  hour  conference   call.   • 12  months  later,  still  can’t  get  comparative  or  uniform  pricing   information.  Vendors  hiding  the  costs  in  the  variability  of  the   professional  services  fees.   • Narrowed  field  down  to  single  vendor  – but  hearing  negative   information  in  the  market.   • Running  out  of  time  – losing  the  budget  by  end  of  year.
