Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity, and efficiency of critical infrastructure, today announced it is has been recognized as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) 2013 Vendor Analysis (doc #241280, May 2013).

The IDC MarketScape report recognises Emerson for current capabilities and future strategy for all of its DCIM solutions, which deliver the capabilities needed for intuitive, scalable enterprise-class infrastructure monitoring and management. Emerson’s DCIM technology bridges the gap between facilities and IT operations in the data centre, allowing IT to be a key player in the execution of the organisation’s growth initiatives.

“Emerson Network Power’s R&D investment, sales channels, and partnerships within the DCIM ecosystem position its solutions to meet the critical needs of data centre availability and agility,” said Jennifer Koppy, research manager at IDC. “The Trellis™ platform, in particular, represents the realisation of many DCIM wish lists by delivering a single pane of glass that enables users to monitor, control, and analyse data centre assets in real time.”

Earlier this year, IBM and Emerson Network Power teamed together to help clients understand and respond to what was happening in their data centres at the physical and application layers. This unique collaboration was the first to bring together a complete picture of data centre operations.

“Emerson Network Power’s leadership position in the IDC DCIM market analysis reinforces why we chose to work with them to help clients improve data centre efficiency and service management,” said Christopher O’Connor vice president strategy and engineering, IBM cloud and smarter infrastructure. Together with Emerson Network Power we are addressing client demand for a holistic, real-time view of their data centre across facilities and IT resources, with the information they need to improve overall operational efficiency.”

Steve Hassell, president of Emerson Network Power’s Data Center Solutions business, added: “IDC’s objective analysis of the DCIM market validates our approach and DCIM solution capabilities, giving our customers added confidence that they are moving forward with a solution that delivers extraordinary value today while continuing to meet their needs well into the future. We are committed to continuing the pace of innovation recognised by IDC with new capabilities that expand management and predictive capabilities while extending real-time visibility to a whole new family of devices.”

IDC’s report specifically recognises the Trellis platform, the Avocent® Universal Management Gateway, Avocent DSView™ management software, Avocent Data Center Planner, Avocent Rack Power Manager, Aperture®, Liebert Sitescan™, and Liebert Nform.
