Energy management specialist Schneider Electric's DCIM software suite - StruxureWare for Data Centers  - has helped the company win a  leadership position for the second consecutive year in analyst firm IDC's MarketScape: Worldwide DCIM 2013 Vendor Analysis report.

APC by Schneider Electric Malaysia vice president, John Atherton, said, "We at Schneider Electric are honoured to having IDC name Schneider Electric as a  worldwide MarketScape Leader (DCIM leader) for  its StruxureWare for Data Centers suite."

"Struxureware for Data Centers is a holistic DCIM software suite managing all aspects of the data centre to help businesses optimise data centre performance and meet IT business and service oriented goals," said Atherton. "We are committed to provide an 'all-in-one' management software to ensure that data centres continue to be reliable, efficient, productive, safe and most important of all, maintaining a sustainable environment by being green."

According to IDC MarketScape (May 2013), several vendors maintained strong growth as well as an ongoing effort to define their brand offering through full-scale solutions.  "Schneider Electric has again been identified by IDC in the MarketScape as one of the vendors most likely to be a major player in the DCIM market over the next several years." 

"A DCIM provider with a global footprint, long history in the industry, and strong financial backing is often preferred by DCIM purchase decision makers. Schneider Electric has these qualities and is already present in many of the world's enterprises with its power solutions and global support services team," stated the IDC MarketScape report.

"Having IDC name Schneider Electric a Leader in DCIM again is a remarkable achievement and confirms the strength of our strategy and vision for StruxureWare for Data Centers," said Schneider Electric vice president, solution software, Soeren Brogaard Jensen. "Our customers have consistently benefitted from the StruxureWare solution to solve their capacity problems over the past three years and we will continue to develop and innovate this market-leading DCIM solution to help customers bridge the gap between Facilities and IT, and operate their data centre as a business."
