Emerson Network Power and Schneider Electric Emerge As Leaders in Asia’s Datacenter Infrastructure  Market: IDC

idcSingapore and Hong Kong, November 6, 2014 – Emerson Network Power and Schneider Electric hold prominent positions within the “Leaders” category for 2014, according to IDC’s new vendor assessment and market analysis profiling the leading providers in the Asia Pacific excluding Japan’s (APeJ) Datacenter Infrastructure Management (DCIM) market.


The study, IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) Datacenter Infrastructure Management 2014 Vendor Analysis, uses the IDC MarketScape methodology to provide an assessment of ten vendors participating in the datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) market.


“The Datacenter Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution can help organizations manage the growing complexity within their data centers and cope with the increasing pressure to be more agile in provisioning IT. Adoption of 3rd platform technologies has led to evolution of data centers at a much higher pace than the organization’s ability to transform their processes,” says Ambica Pruthi, Senior Market Analyst, Enterprise Infrastructure Team, IDC Asia/Pacific.


She explains that the DCIM market is still evolving and has not reached a point where one solution fits all. Two major challenges IT buyers may face:

  • The differences in the definitions of DCIM solution, benefits and ROI create a lot of confusion and often make it difficult for buyers to do true comparisons
  • Buyers, especially large organizations, find it difficult to figure out where to begin given the wide scope of DCIM implementation

In order to resonate better with the buyers, IDC recommends that vendors consider moving beyond the message of saving power and focus on how their solutions can help customers achieve optimization, telemetry, and efficiency in the datacenters.


The IDC MarketScape is a vendor assessment tool designed for IT buyers to compare vendors’ current capability and strategy relative to one another and to the factors that IDC believes will be most conducive to future success in the DCIM market.


Vendors included in this analysis are: ABB, CA Technologies, Cormant, Emerson Network Power, FieldView Solutions, iTRACS, Nlyte Software, Panduit, Raritan and Schneider Electric.
