NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Data Center Energy and Infrastructure Management

Software and Services Market Trends, Key Functionalities, Supply- and Demand-Side Market Dynamics, Data Center Energy Efficiency, and Global Market Forecasts

Data centers around the world are increasingly becoming economic hubs for all forms of businesses. This is driving significant growth in the need for data center capacity, and businesses are scrambling to keep pace. As data centers' importance and capacity have grown, so have their costs. One of the largest operational costs of a data center is energy consumption. Businesses are struggling to both understand and contain these costs, while governments and environmental entities are attempting to establish measures and programs to manage the rise in energy use and the effects it will have on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and global warming.Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software and services have risen to the forefront of this battle and are opening tremendous opportunities for data centers to become more manageable and efficient. DCIM software is enabling deep visibility into all aspects of a data center's operations – from facilities operations to IT management. The software is also bridging the silos of responsibility between facilities and IT personnel that have long existed in a data center. Meanwhile, many of the market hurdles (such as risk aversion by clients and awareness of DCIM capabilities) have dissipated, opening significant opportunities for DCIM vendors and data centers in the coming years. Navigant Research forecasts that global DCIM spending will grow from $663.2 million in 2013 to more than $4.5 billion in 2020.This Navigant Research report analyzes the global DCIM market. The study assesses current market trends and dynamics, the key functionalities of DCIM solutions, and how these systems and services benefit data centers around the world. Global market forecasts of DCIM spending and market share, broken out by region and market segment, extend through 2020. The report also features profiles of key industry players and a discussion of regional drivers and hurdles.

Key Questions Addressed:

What is data center infrastructure management (DCIM) and how does it help a data center become more efficient?What are the key benefits of a DCIM system?Who are the leading players in the DCIM market?How does a DCIM system increase productivity within a data center?What does a DCIM system monitor and measure within a data center?How fast will the DCIM market grow in the next 7 years?What are some of the pitfalls that DCIM customers should consider?What market trends will influence the DCIM market in the coming years?
