Schneider Electric Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) Customer Testimonial

You can see the status of an entire facility’s infrastructure whether it is local or remote. If there has been an outage you can quickly see if there are any outstanding alerts or if everything has cleared. I use the phone app to verify and send status updates after hours. It is also a great tool in determining if a remote site outage is power related or a network provider issue so that we can respond quickly and appropriately.
