Education Through Simulation
Watch your decisions come to life as you create and optimize your own virtual Datacenter.
An evolution in Datacenter management education
Around 67% of businesses need to improve their educational offering, according to a Harvard Business Review. Simulcation was developed to offer solutions to the traditional problems associated with business training.
By adding all the benefits of simulated learning with gamification, Simulcation immerses users in an engaging environment - providing not just content, but experience.
In Simulcation Datacenter - the first of our simulations - users discover the real-life consequences of their decisions. By finding the right mix of products, services, and skills, they will make better choices and communicate the wider benefits to their organization in real terms.
'People trained on simulations do their job better, have higher skills, retain information longer and develop a strong belief in their ability and competence to perform in challenging situations.'
University of Colorado
Harvard Business Publishing asked a group of simulation authors questions about their experience using simulations (aka "sims") in the classroom. Their answers show that simulations challenge students to analyze available information and make critical decisions to solve a business challenge. While sometimes perceived as "video games," in fact, the best simulations allow students to experiment with ideas and outcomes and ultimately master the application of concepts to real situations.

Simulcation and IBM
Simulcation has been developed in exciting partnership with IBM to solve many of the problems organizations traditionally face with training. Through an engaging, immersive and competitive simulated environment, professionals have the freedom to explore and learn in a new way.
Combining simulation technology, complex development elements, IT-expert knowledge and fun was a real challenge. But we have achieved a very good milestone and I am extremely proud of the team. We now have an amazing product available for our users and we continue to add features and optimizations.

Simulcation was founded by an experienced team of learning and gaming enthusiasts. It is our aim to provide our users a fun and valuable educational experience. We see no better way to do so then with a simulation. Combining deep Datacenter understanding and its component and processes with a simulation and gaming elements that is the base of Simulcation. Enjoy learning datacenter building elements and how they influence an organization.
