A successful implementation is a prerequisite for DCIM success. Our tried-and-trusted implementation process means we’ve completed hundreds of successful implementations before. It’s with this proven history of success that you know you’re not only in good hands, but that the implementation will be done accurately and efficiently.
1) Prioritize your Phase 1 Goals
You’re deploying Cormant-CS DCIM because of identified needs in your data center or campus. These needs relate to your goals which must drive the implementation process. We’ll help guide you through this process to ensure all the important questions are answered up-front to avoid rework.
2) Identify Project Resources
You should first identify the primary leader and administrator to ensure success of the project then identify the personnel required from other departments.
3) Acquire and Build the Database
Easily acquire data by importing spreadsheets, SNMP discovery, web services XML API or adding, connecting, and auditing from a mobile handheld device.
4) Interface with Existing Systems
Quickly interface with your existing systems with our web services XML API for full read and write capabilities. Rest assured, we’ve had experience with numerous systems since our first deployment in 2003. If this seems daunting, we can do it for you! Learn more on our integration services page.
You can operate Cormant-CS intuitively with little to no training, however training is always recommended to get the most out of the product. We offer additional, in-depth training courses for those interested in a deeper dive into the software. See the available courses here.
6) Review and Go Live
