Schneider Electric has been recognized by the US information technology research and advisory company Gartner as a leader in the Magic Quadrant for Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), thanks to StruxureWare for Data Centers software suite.

“Gartner’s decision to create a Magic Quadrant in DCIM reflects the increasing maturity of this market, as well as the need for buyer clarity. As our world expands increasingly digital, data centers become safety belts for critical information and services, which increases the need for DCIM tools to secure efficiency and uptime”, comments Soeren Brogaard Jensen, Vice President, Solution Software, Schneider Electric.
“We consider that our designation as leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant confirms our commitment to help data center owners manage these increasing challenges and make strategic decisions about energy use, business needs, changes in technology and resource optimization based on real-time analytics”,he added.
