On October 20, 2009, IBM announced several new and enhanced offerings designed to help our customers succeed in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. The announcements reinforce the vision of a Dynamic Infrastructure and support our client's desire to improve service, reduce cost and manage risk, while also laying the foundation to take advantage of future business and IT needs.
The solutions and capabilities announced enhance the visibility, control, and automation across an organization's business and IT assets.
Among these solutions is Maximo Asset Management for Energy Optimization 7.1. We've talked about this solution in the past (see "Heat maps, anyone? a.k.a. Thermal visualization in the data center"). MEO, as we call it for short, helps increase visibility of energy and thermal information with data center heat maps that help IT and facilities managers see thermal anomalies in a real-time, visual format. This allows them to take swift, corrective actions in order to optimize assets and ultimately reduce energy costs.
How does this relate to a Dynamic Infrastructure? Today's business environment is challenging on many fronts. And your IT infrastructure is no exception. You need to cut energy usage and cost, and you must meet increasing demands from your customers, partners and employees. You need to help your business stay ahead of the competition, but you have to do it all with a limited budget. Thus, you need a secure, flexible, intelligent and dynamic infrastructure to be successful. And visibility on to your data center and facilities assets is one place to focus your efforts. Because saving energy saves you money. Check out Maximo Asset Management for Energy Optimization for yourself.
Please feel free to comment! We'd love to hear from you.
