"As we enter a new era where AI drives significant growth in the compute market, the influx of GPUs has caught the attention of CIOs due to the rising power costs of running data centers," said Roy Illsley, chief analyst, Omdia. "The adoption of these DCIM tools varies, with significant interest now coming from enterprises lacking in-house skills, leading to the rise of DCIM as a service."

The report had a positive outlook for 2024 and beyond. With the IT equipment, particularly servers and network equipment, expected to increase annually, enterprises need to ensure the robust monitoring of IT infrastructure, which drives the DCIM market revenue.
