Taking a bit of a deeper look at Sunbird’s lineup, its flagship DCIM product is dcTrack for asset management and capacity planning. Sunbird’s latest dcTrack release 6.1 is now fully HMTL5, “enabling faster deployment on multiple devices (including mobile) and improved functionality such as granular multi-field searches,” the report states.
