iTRACS, a CommScope company providing open
enterprise-class data center infrastructure management (DCIM) solutions, has
released Converged Physical Infrastructure Management® (CPIM®) 3.2. This latest release
enables faster workflows, enhanced integration tools and a new level of
automated connectivity management featuring the integrated imVision® automated infrastructure management solution.
The integration of the
imVision platform with CPIM extends iTRACS’ capabilities with intelligent
connectivity management. This integration offers CPIM users real-time
visibility into the physical cabling infrastructure that connects IT assets in
the data center.
real-time asset and connectivity information, CPIM customers can optimize the
capacity of their infrastructure by identifying and eliminating unused network
and patch panel ports and other patching inefficiencies. They can reduce the
time to resolve issues and enhance network availability by pinpointing and
resolving connectivity issues, such as unscheduled changes, that can cause downtime.
And they can ensure the fastest time-to-value for new IT and network assets by
leveraging imVision’s guided work order administration and real time

CPIM users will now
have an additional source of connectivity intelligence offering real-time
visibility into every port and panel. The flow of connectivity data from
imVision is seamless. The connectivity database only has to be created once,
allowing both platforms to leverage the data.
In addition to
integration of imVision, CPIM 3.2 features a number of enhancements to the
software suite including:
CPIM’s new point-and-click asset reconciliation tool lets users quickly
resolve data conflicts that can arise when combining data from multiple
enterprise systems. Customers are notified and guided to clean up
discrepancies and eliminate system-to-system conflicts.
data exchange. An improved flat file
integration agent offers bi-directional data exchange enabling
plug-and-play integration between CPIM and third-party systems dealing
with asset or change management and operational data feeds.
