Mr. Guy Archbold, RACKWISE® Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Seattle is one of our nation’s leading technology centers and we are particularly pleased and proud that the City’s Department of Information Technology selected our RACKWISE® DCiM Xtm solution as an integral component of its current and prospective DCiM Xtm and information technology management strategies to maximize IT operational effectiveness across the City’s vast number of departments and agencies.
