How to Automatically Keep Your DCIM 100% Accurate

Why Accuracy is Your DCIMs Most Critical Asset

As useful as DCIMs are, they are dependent on accurate and real-time data. Without both, DCIMs can unknowingly report misleading asset location and environmental data. RF Code integration with off-the-shelf and homegrown DCIMs feeds these systems 100% accurate asset tracking and chain of custody data in real-time

RF Code’s proven DCIM integration automates two-way data synchronization so your DCIM is capturing and reporting on critical asset location and conditions. From loading docks to inventory and precise rack placement to decommissioning, your DCIM asset intelligence will empower you to make real-time decisions with confidence.

I don’t ever want to explain to my VP that an infrastructure management tool that we’re spending $100K a year on is not accurate enough.

Because we are a co-location operator, many of our customers are focused on their SLAs. With RF Code, we now have the most accurate data we need to meet our SLA requirements without impacting the customer’s environment.

Success Story 1

Multinational Financial Services Company

Westlake, TX




  • The data center team could not hit their KPIs after implementing their $1M DCIM.
  • Discovered that their native DCIM asset discovery tool was 85% accurate which was not acceptable.
  • It took an average of four hours to locate and reconcile assets manually.
  • The hourly burn rate for manual inventory work was unsustainable.
  • Average 90-day dwell time to get assets in production.


  • Deployed 500 racks of RF Code Infrastructure, CenterScape Software, and 10K sensors.
  • Integrated RF Code for DCIM.


  • Asset data repository accuracy improved from 85% to 99%.
  • Reduced reserve inventory by 10% and recouped $300K in capital asset expenditures.
  • Reduced asset dwell time from 90 days to 30 days running average.
  • Saved nearly 4,000 annual labor hours dedicated to locating, reconciling, and dispositioning assets. Reallocated those hours to strategic data center projects.
  • Reduced annual wall-to-wall audit costs.
  • It took five months to achieve an ROI on RF Code hardware and software.
Success Story 2

Fortune 500 Diversified Financial Services Group

San Antonio, TX




  • Deployed DCIM for capacity planning and realized after implementation that asset location and inventory were not accurate enough.
  • One of the main issues was the CMDB not being updated automatically causing spatial planning challenges.
  • They brought in a 3rd party to manually count assets to solve inaccuracy concerns, but that resulted in larger costs, with no improvements.


  • Deployed 585 racks of RF Code Infrastructure, CenterScape Software, and 8.7K sensors.
  • Integrated RF Code for DCIM.


  • Eliminated 3rd party labor hours (saved $75,000.00).
  • Reduced FTE audit hours by approximately 80%.
  • Reduced commissioned rack/asset implementation from 6 weeks to 1 week.
  • Reduced O&M ticket time from 90 minutes to 40 minutes.
