Data center automation is a hot topic because it’s expected to drive rapid change across the industry in the very near future. Its benefits are numerous and can include increasing efficiency, improving data accuracy, and boosting productivity. But many data center professionals are unsure how automation will really impact data center management. Fortunately, there are examples of solutions that have been successfully integrated by pioneering data center managers already ahead of the curve.

This white paper from Sunbird explores 10 ways in which innovative and sophisticated customers are using second-generation data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software to drive automation. Use cases include: virtual machine management, provisioning and orchestration, parts management, and device power management.

Other use cases illustrate how automation can be used to provide a single source of truth, leverage a business rules engine and webhooks, and automatically schedule charts and reports via email.  The common thread between all of these automation strategies is DCIM software.
