We are excited to announce that nlyte Software has been named a ‘Cool Vendor’ by leading analyst firm, Gartner.  The report, written by Jay E. Pultz, Jeffrey Hewitt, David J. Cappuccio and Rakesh Kumar of Gartner, Inc., affirms the benefits that data center infrastructure management (DCIM) has on the growing challenges within the data center in regards to power, space, cooling and network availability.

According to Gartner, “Data center managers recognize that power and cooling represent major challenges — but, as yet, most do not have a good grasp on the severity of their problems or their effective management.” They recommend companies “evaluate and pilot test DCIM tools and implement DCIM in the highest power density areas of your data center.” Gartner went on to say, “DCIM is likely to be ‘self-funding’ – the cost of tools is likely to be offset by the savings in power costs that DCIM helps enable.” 

According to Gartner on the nlyte suite “development work was initially done by data center professionals, an IT approach that can be seen in the way the product works across the entire suite.”  The nlyte DCIM solution provides 3D data models, auto-discovery of data center assets, intelligent capacity planning and advanced integrated analytics resulting in the most efficient use of power, cooling and space through the optimal placement of data center assets.  The nlyte DCIM suite automatically discovers IT assets, lets you visualize the physical infrastructure, model the Move, Add, Change (MAC) initiatives across your data center estate, control data center processes and personnel, report on progress and predict capacity resources well into the future.  All this enables a more efficient, cost-effective and greener data center environment.

Gartner defines a cool vendor as a company that offers technologies or solutions that are: Innovative, enable users to do things they couldn’t do before; Impactful, have, or will have, business impact (not just technology for the sake of technology); Intriguing, have caught Gartner’s interest or curiosity in approximately the past six months.
