Keep Nlyte Up to Date Automatically in Real-time

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. The Nlyte Connector for RF Code Asset Manager fuels Nlyte with 99%+ accurate asset tracking and chain of custody data.

The Nlyte Connector automates two-way data synchronization so RF Code keeps Nlyte up to date in real-time.

Success Story 1

Multinational Financial Services Company

Westlake, TX

Problem 

  • 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.

Solution

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

Results

  • 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

Problem

  • 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.

Solution

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

Results

  • 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.
