Cormant’s recent appearance at Interop (News - Alert) 2012, the convention for all things IT, was informative on the data center and infrastructure management (DCIM) front. With two classes hosted by the software development company, both in DCIM and deploying a paperless infrastructure, IT professionals learned how to better their data center management with real-world examples.
Cormant’s CableSolve solution addresses the spreadsheet management problem, a process that lacks a higher level of management required to run a data center, and includes Server, client, Web and Portable/Mobile components in a single complete solution.
The product was selected as NetworkWorld's Product of the Week back in March for its 6.3 version. With CableSolve 6.3, data center managers see the benefits of a single-pane-of-glass view into the assets and connectivity components, with the flexibility to have complete view from any tablet that supports HTML 5, including iPads and Android (News - Alert) tablets.
Earlier this year, Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) recently tapped Cormant for CableSolve to help document, manage and monitor the physical connectivity layer of its IT infrastructure.
Cormant is doing well as far as DCIM is concerned.
At Interop 2012, TMCnet had an exclusive interview with Michael Phares, Marketing and Business Director for Cormant, and Phares talked about CableSolve 6.3, how the company has been doing HTML5 before it went big.

In DCIM, however, a big concern for IT managers is running a data center with muti-vendor equipment.
Of course, for Cormant and CableSolve, it wasn’t a big issue.
“We’ve been vendor-neutral since day one,” said Phares to TMCnet’s Rich Tehrani (News - Alert). “Having legacy systems come together and trying to make them play together is a strong suit of ours.”
