This session presents the future of the Data Center Maturity Model (DCMM) and the assessment tool. The tool allows you to assess your data center and IT portfolio against the DCMM, access your personal DCMM equalizer, and obtain benchmarking results – see how you are doing against the industry and similar types of data centers. The DCMM outlines capability descriptors by area such that users can understand 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. The maturity model touches upon every aspect of the data center including power, cooling, compute, storage, and network.
