DCIM also know as Data Center Infrastructure Management is a data center management tool which combines the more traditional IT systems and network monitoring with the physical systems monitoring like power and cooling. DCIM leverages the integration of information technology (IT) and facility management disciplines to centralize monitoring, management and intelligent capacity planning of a data center's critical systems. Essentially it provides a significantly more comprehensive view of ALL of the resources within the data center.
Isolating application problems can be challenging in highly virtualized or cloud environments. This paper offers a roadmap to optimize application performance management with a pragmatic, phased approach that goes beyond monitoring and focuses on support for composite applications, SOA, and ERP applications.
As line-of-business owners (LOBs) seek to initiate the SaaS model, it becomes critical to consider these concerns to assure productivity. This white paper from BlueCoat identifies the key concerns that IT must address to assure access and performance for Internet-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications.
Due to a multiplicity of users, threats and data, security has become a huge endeavor. The logical approach to solving this problem is the creation of a virtual infrastructure that can accommodate the requirements of a robust network environment, but greatly reduce the need for hardware. This white paper from BlueCoat explains the components that together make a virtualized, consolidated security infrastructure practical.

When it comes to application infrastructure, some of the burning questions that organizations are asking themselves include:
If I host some of my application functionality in the could, how do I integrate that with my existing on-premises applications?
How do I integrate my on-premises application with external business partners?
Everyone is talking about platform as a service (PaaS). Should I use it? If so, when and when not?
In this research, we address these questions by introducing the concept of iPaaS, a specific form of PaaS targeting integration and governance requirements, and how it can be used to address cloud-to-on-premises and other related requirements.
