Raritan, a leading provider of data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions, today announced that its dcTrack® DCIM software has been named a finalist in the software category for the 2012 American Technology Awards.
Presented by the TechAmerica Foundation, the awards recognize the best products and services in the technology industry. Raritan's dcTrack is a software finalist along with IBM's Watson technology and Cadence Design Systems, Inc.'s Cadence Virtual System Platform.
dcTrack was recognized for its ability to visualize infrastructure resources and their interrelationships -- including facilities, network and IT resources. Raritan's DCIM solution helps data centers better manage placement of IT equipment, improve power and cooling efficiency, make informed capacity management decisions, and keep accurate track of data center assets.
"Data centers, crucial to businesses everywhere, have grown in size, density and complexity; as a result, companies are looking for better ways to manage their data center infrastructures and resources. dcTrack helps alleviate major data center pain points and improve operating and energy efficiencies," said Herman Chan, Raritan Vice President of Product Management. "Being selected an American Technology Award finalist is an enormous industry recognition for the pioneering work and innovation that have gone into our dcTrack DCIM solution. Raritan is pleased to be in the same company with other finalists who have demonstrated ingenuity and creativity."
“The caliber of this year’s nominees was incredible. Our judges had their work cut out for them,” said Jennifer Kerber, President of the TechAmerica Foundation. “We congratulate Raritan for their outstanding work and thank them for their contribution to the growth and innovation of our vibrant tech industry.”
The awards, also known as the “Termans” in honor of the widely credited father of Silicon Valley, are awarded on the basis of a thorough evaluation by industry experts and technology leaders.
The winners will be announced at the Technology and Government gala dinner in Washington, D.C. on June 13. Kevin Johnson, CEO of Juniper Networks, will also be honored during the dinner with the American Technology Awards Corporate Leadership Award, and Department of Homeland Security Chief Information Officer Richard Spires will be recognized as the Government Technology Executive of the Year.
