2017-04-11 - ABB once again participated at DatacenterDynamics (DCD) 2017 with exciting line-up by introducing ABB Ability™ Data Center Automation. The latest version of ABB’s data center automation offering comes with added integrations, more functionality, and flexibility to enable better transparency and interoperability.
