Online Efficiency Tool from APC
APC unveiled an online Efficiency Quotient tool to help IT professionals determine the efficiency levels of their data centers. APC’s easy-to-use Efficiency Quotient tool provides a fact-based rating of an existing data center’s current efficiency levels; recommended next steps for improvement; access to related white papers, tools and information; and more information on the key elements of an Efficient Enterprise. This is the first in a series of efficiency quotient tools that APC will introduce in the months ahead. Once an IT professional completes the 18 question survey (requiring only multiple-choice or yes/no responses), the online measurement tool provides an audit of current efficiency and identifies any gaps that need attention to improve efficiency. The audit provides results in three categories including the data center infrastructure efficiency, the IT efficiency effectiveness, and the data center’s efficiency maturity level.
