News Release

Keysource chosen by Worthing and Adur Councils for Advanced DCIM Solution

- delivering operational savings and efficiencies -
Released: 3rd September 2013
Publisher: Keysource

Worthing and Adur Councils, an innovative and groundbreaking public sector collaboration in the South East of England, has selected Keysource to develop an advanced Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) solution that will deliver operational savings and efficiencies. Under the agreement, Keysource will implement an industry-leading software solution that will provide a centralised platform to better monitor and manage the council partnership’s facilities and technology infrastructures across multiple data centre locations.

The integrated monitoring approach will provide complete, real-time visibility of all mechanical and electrical (M&E) and technology (IT) equipment, supporting the ongoing consolidation of the data centre network and enabling the drive towards virtualisation. DCIM will replace inefficient, manual processes to achieve significant time savings and help highlight areas of underperformance within the data centre infrastructure.

In particular, capacity planning and IT impact analysis functionality will allow Worthing and Adur Councils’ dedicated team to understand the effect of planned actions and deployments before they are applied. This will ensure a greater understanding of potential changes to power usage, availability and risk as well as help identify the optimum locations for IT equipment.

Mike Gawley, IT Manager at Worthing and Adur Councils commented: “Keysource has delivered a powerful DCIM software solution for the ongoing management of our data centres and server rooms including asset management, capacity management and predictive IT impact analysis. This will provide a key enabler for optimising the performance of our facilities, unlocking the full potential of our infrastructure and helping to achieve our business goals.”

Rob Elder, Director of Keysource said: “The implementation of an effective DCIM solution provides a single platform for real-time monitoring and management of all interdependent systems and assets, delivering a range of business and operational benefits. This is particularly relevant for the public sector where many organisations are having to meet increased demand for services with a smaller budget and the challenge of managing a mixture of new and legacy technologies and facilities.”
