Sunbird Software is positioned as a Major Player in the report (IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Datacenter Infrastructure Management 2015 Vendor Assessment, doc #259603, October 2015) published in late October 2015. The IDC MarketScape report analyzed 15 companies that qualify as DCIM providers.

"We are delighted to be part of this important DCIM report, and to be among the top pure-play DCIM software companies and with one of the largest market shares," said Herman Chan, president of Sunbird Software. "Making data centers smart and data-aware with continuous resource monitoring and built-in analytics is changing how data centers are managed and used. Sunbird DCIM powers the agile data center to meet new and changing business demands by radically speeding up deployment of new services and by enabling resources to be used efficiently."

"Sunbird solutions deliver smart-IT-enabled data centers," says Jennifer Koppy, research director for IDC's Datacenter Trends & Strategies team and author of the MarketScape report on DCIM. "Sunbird's commitment to customer success has led to the company's large installed base and high customer retention rate. The company has invested in education initiatives, and its services organization works closely with customers to ensure project milestones are met. This will fuel continued growth in the DCIM space."

The IDC MarketScape report goes on to say that Sunbird has successfully helped both existing and new data centers deploy DCIM: "Gaining visibility and control over data center resources that are already in use is a challenge for all end users, and this challenge is the reason that many have decided to deploy DCIM only in new data center builds. However, Sunbird DCIM has been equally successful in brownfield as well as greenfield data center deployments and scales well to support data centers of many sizes."
