DCIM Services

DCIM Services

Data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions add tracking and configuration management capabilities to data center management for physical assets and logical resources found in the data center, unifying the facilities and IT domains into a single, coherent managed information source.

At a high, level a DCIM solution bridges the gap between the physical plant and the IT side of the data center. This bridging function allows monitoring; and adjustment based on real time and anticipated IT load requirements, resulting in improved energy efficiency. DCIM deployments provide information on operational monitoring, management and intelligent capacity planning of a data center's critical systems. DCIM deployments deliver this feature by employing specialized software, hardware and sensors. These hardware devices and sensors create fabric of connections utilizing protocols like SNMP, Lontalk, manufacturer codes, etc. 

Several vendors in 2014 identify their offerings to be part of the DCIM category; depending on who you ask and what type of DCIM solution, (full suite, partial suite, hardware, software, capacity planning, high-fidelity visualization, real-time monitoring, cable/connectivity management, environmental/energy sensors, business analytics (including financial modeling), process/change management, and integration  with various types of external management systems and data sources); more than a dozen vendors sell a DCIM product. This creates a confusing arrangement of products that may fill some needs and not interface well with others. Customers who successfully deploy DCIM are driven by a myriad of industry and government standard metrics intended to provide cost-effective planning and operations support for the data center. Examples of these include Power Utilization Effectiveness (PUE), Carbon Usage Effectivness (CUE) and Data Center Energy Productivity (DCeP)– as well as vendor-driven metrics such as PAR4 - Server Power Usage Data Center Predictive Modeling  and (DCPM). Some of these have multiple ways of being calculated which adds to the confusion.

We provide DCIM selection, installation and configuration services to some of the largest corporations in the world. Our experience includes creating development , pilot, and production environments using products from most of the major DCIM vendors. This breadth of experience with many different product sets allows us to provide our customers with keen insight into what will work in their environment and which tools interface and scale to meet future needs. Best of all our team works with your staff to provide the opportunity for the education needed to keep the systems in tune and grow the system when required.

The plain truth is that if you want to get a great return on your investment you need an expert to help your team optimize the configuration of the interface, configure the SNMP traps, derive set points for the  data being captured, and analysis to optimize the process and close in on your energy efficiency targets.

Please contact us today and let us be the bright light that cuts through this fog and puts your team on the right path, it only takes a phone call or an e-mail.

Data Science Services

Data Science Services

Hiring a data scientist is a huge expense, one that will take months to start producing valuable output. In a recent Forbes survey, data scientists reported that they spend as much as 60% of their time wrangling data to prepare it for use before they can start to do the important task. It is their least favorite activity. It makes sense, therefore, to hire a Sine Nomine Associates consulting subject matter expert to work with your team before you hire a full time specialist. Our certified data scientist and engineers work with your team to help understand what data science can do for your company, and what a data scientist will need to make your company more productive. Using team interviews to understand the types of questions our team will start to develop stories, check data pools for the type of information needed, and develop models to get your data science effort off to a great start. 


Our certified data scientist and engineers will work to help you achieve a data-driven view and see your business differently. We focus on realistic business outcomes. Our team bridges the data science gaps by blending business, design and programming talent with years of experience. Our team has experience using most open source programming languages and tools such as R, Anaconda, and Python, as well as commercial packages like Microsoft Excel, Power BI and Tableau. The shift from enterprise requirements to innovative thinking in the business analytic sector has given a lot of traction to competitive data discovery.

If you are tired of searching through raw data and want meaningful repeatable graphic reports, we can help. Like the early telescopes, which gave humans a new perspective of our universe, viewing your organization through a data lens provides a new way to understand your business.

Human Centered Design Thinking

You know your business, and we know data science. We will work with you to imagine the possible, find the feasible, and develop the execution plan. Workers are often too close to the process in their area to see the whole enterprise. A famous example of design thinking recounts the birth of the early automobile by saying if early auto manufacturers had done marketing surveys and asked people what they needed,  their answer would have been a faster horse!

We look forward to hearing about your project, please use our contact form to get started.
