Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader
in maximizing availability, capacity, and efficiency of critical
infrastructure, today announced that it will combine the capabilities of
its TrellisTM platform with IBM IT service management
(ITSM) software to significantly optimize the management of data center
resources. This integrated data center infrastructure management (DCIM)
solution will deliver increased energy and operational efficiency and
improved IT service delivery.
DCIM is an essential component for businesses that have high quality of
service demands for information technologies and need to scale quickly.
An estimated $450 million market today, DCIM is expected to grow to $1.7
billion by 2016, according to industry analyst firm Gartner.*
Emerson customer Brocade is one of many IT-intensive businesses
struggling to solve growth-related infrastructure challenges. The
company recognizes the value of combining DCIM and ITSM capabilities in
providing information and metrics to support the strategic resource
allocation and investment required to meet future needs. “‘Do more with
less’ has become standard operating policy in IT and data center
environments. At the same time, the mix of physical and virtual assets
is growing exponentially,” said Valery Sokolov, senior manager,
Engineering Lab Services, Brocade. “Because of these trends, there is a
real business case for tools and applications that will provide the
visibility and metrics required to manage IT resources and facilities
provisioning efficiently and productively. This is where DCIM and ITSM
applications become critical to provide the data required to achieve
that goal, as well as to plan and model growth.”
Integrating IBM software with Emerson’s Trellis platform will
provide real-time visibility from IT applications, through
infrastructure components, and all the way to the power grid, enabling
holistic management of the data center ecosystem. This information can
be used to improve energy efficiency and space and capacity utilization,
enable rapid problem management and resource provisioning, and improve
operational efficiency, all of which reduce the risk of downtime and
enhance the delivery of IT services.
Industry analyst firm IDC, which has been studying the DCIM market since
its inception, believes this integration can deliver customer benefits.
“The combination of Emerson’s real-time infrastructure optimization
capabilities in the Trellis platform and IBM’s suite of
enterprise system management capabilities has the potential to help IT
and facilities teams deploy a comprehensive data center infrastructure
management solution to increase energy and operational efficiency,” said
Jennifer Koppy, research manager, IDC.
The combined capabilities of Emerson’s Trellis platform and IBM
software will also enable data center managers to understand the true
costs of running an application with metrics like watts per workload,
calculate its resource demands in real-time, and dynamically provision
physical and logical resources to support the application efficiently
“Managing the physical constraints of available space and power in the
data center is becoming a greater challenge for organizations. This,
combined with the increasing demand on the enterprise for reliable and
agile IT services, makes finding a cost-effective solution critical for
our customers,” said Jamie Thomas, vice president, Tivoli strategy and
development, IBM. “The combination of Emerson Network Power’s
market-leading DCIM solution – the Trellis platform – along with
our solutions for IT service management and systems management, is an
ideal way to meet these customer needs with innovative capabilities.”
Steve Hassell, president of Emerson Network Power’s Avocent business,
added: “Aligning our DCIM capabilities with IBM’s software capabilities
enables data center managers and IT and facilities leaders to see,
decide, and act across all resources. This collaboration with IBM is a
strong validation of our DCIM strategy and the ability of the Trellis
platform to improve how data centers are currently managed and operated.
Our collaboration will span engineering, development, and go-to-market
strategies, and we are making significant investments to realize the
full potential of our work together.”
As part of this collaboration, IBM will resell the Emerson Trellis
platform as its DCIM solution. Details of the Trellis platform
integration roadmap with IBM Tivoli software will be available in March
at the IBM PULSE 2013 conference. To register for the event, visit: www.ibm.com/pulse.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
