HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- February 20, 2014

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE: EMR) and a global leader
in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical
infrastructure, today announced that a Total Economic Impact (TEI) study found
that Emerson’s data center infrastructure management (DCIM) platform can
achieve 100 percent return on investment (ROI) in just 13 months.

Thecommissioned study, conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of
Emerson, analyzed data from and interviewed 12 Emerson Network Power
customers, including a global bank customer – with offices in the Middle East,
Europe, Asia, Australia and the U.S. – who was chosen as the focus for a
detailed case study. The customer has three data centers which total more than
6,000 square feet, including one data center specifically designed for
disaster recovery. The ROI analysis found that the customer captured $1.6
million in total benefits in three years.

Among those benefits were increased system availability, improved productivity
with remote management, and reduced power consumption and energy savings:

  *DCIM enabled an increase in availability by 20 hours per year, capturing
    more than $1.2 million in downtime-related costs alone over the three-year
  *The customer saved more than five hours a day through centralized
    management of its three data centers. Remote management allowed savings of
    travel-related costs reaching almost $39,000 a year, and allowed the
    customer to build out a new data center while saving time as well as
    workforce management expenses of nearly $95,000.
  *Emerson’s DCIM solution also reduced power consumption and related energy
    costs by $10,600 per year.

“The ability to verify ROI is top of mind for our customers, and the
time-to-payback can be a major factor in the decision process,” said Scott
Barbour, executive vice president of Emerson Network Power. “We know our DCIM
solutions bring significant savings to customers, and now we have a study
that, in our opinion, validates these benefits. We are excited to provide
potential DCIM customers with similar ROI measurement and analysis to help
them justify expenditures.”

The Total Economic Impact™ of the Emerson DCIM Solution is the published DCIM
payback analysis.
