CMI’s Adaptable Data Center® framework assists in understanding and adapting data center cost to serve challenges into new opportunities. Adaptable Data Center® is an approach to add disciplined insights when making important decisions regarding data center architecture, design, people and processes that help determine what delivery capabilities are best identified in traditional and emerging solution sets.
