This session presented the future of The Green Grid’s Data Centre Maturity Model (DCMM) and the newly created assessment tool. The tool allows you to assess your data centre and IT portfolio against the DCMM, get access to your personal DCMM equalizer, and obtain benchmarking results. The DCMM touches upon every aspect of the data centre including power, cooling, compute, storage, and network. The levels of the model outline current best practices and a five year roadmap for the industry. The DCMM provides capability descriptions by data centre area so that operators can benchmark their current performance, determine their levels of maturity, and identify the ongoing steps and innovations necessary to achieve greater energy efficiency and sustainability, both today and into the future.
