London, United Kingdom - Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management, has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Datacenter Infrastructure Management (DCIM) 2013 Vendor Analysis (doc #241280, May 2013) for the second consecutive year. The report, which details the current status and definition of the DCIM market as well as a comparison of a wide range of DCIM vendors, identified Schneider Electric as an IDC MarketScape Leader worldwide for its StruxureWareTM for Data Centers suite.
The IDC MarketScape details the continual effort within the DCIM market to identify an appropriate definition of DCIM, as the market evolves and several vendors maintain strong growth and an ongoing effort to define their brand offering through full-scale solutions. Schneider Electric has again been identified by IDC in the MarketScape as one of the vendors most likely to be a major player in the DCIM market over the next several years.
"A DCIM provider with a global footprint, long history in the industry, and strong financial backing is often preferred by DCIM purchase decision makers. Schneider Electric has these qualities and is already present in many of the world's enterprises with its power solutions and global support services team," the IDC MarketScape stated.
"Having IDC name Schneider Electric a Leader in DCIM again is a remarkable achievement and confirms the strength of our strategy and vision for StruxureWare for Data Centers," said Soeren Brogaard Jensen, Vice President, Solution Software, Schneider Electric. "Our customers have consistently benefitted from the StruxureWare solution to solve their capacity problems over the past three years and we will continue to develop and innovate this market-leading DCIM solution to help customers bridge the gap between Facilities and IT, and operate their data centre as a business."
Schneider Electric's market-leading DCIM solution, StruxureWare for Data Centers, is an integrated management software suite designed to manage data centers across multiple domains, providing actionable intelligence for both facilities, and IT and c-level executives to balance availability and efficiency throughout the data center life cycle.
