Sunbird Software has introduced the latest version of its Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software. Release 6.0.2 expands the data-driven features in dcTrack® DCIM Operations interactive reports to enable more informed decision making.

“Data center managers need easier ways to collect and analyze DCIM data to derive useful insights,” said Herman Chan, president, Sunbird. “Our out-of-the-box Business Intelligence and Analytics provide one-click access to specific datasets for faster analysis and correlate them with other information to make smarter data center management decisions.” 

Interactive Reports Enable More Productive Analysis

Release 6.0.2 includes over 75 out-of-the-box reports across the most useful data center management Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Each report includes analytic functionality that enables users to slice and dice the data any way they want:

  • Data summaries and visual analytic charts for trending and high-level analysis
  • Tabular views to see and manipulate the raw data that drives the report
  • Aggregate functions to count occurrences, find minimum and maximum values, and calculate sums or averages across multiple criteria
  • Ability to filter, sort, and hide data to see just the most important data

“DCIM data can provide tremendous value to IT, facilities, and business teams in terms of improving efficiency, decreasing risk, and enabling more effective capacity management,” said Rhonda Ascierto, research director, datacenters & critical infrastructure, 451 Research. “Interactive DCIM reports can help achieve this objective by simplifying and accelerating data analysis in ways that are intuitive to modern data center managers.”
