Why HPE Intelligent Management Centre (IMC) 

As the demands on the network have increased with the shift towards virtualisation, cloud, mobility and rich-media application solutions, organisations have increasingly struggled to keep pace with the business need for networks that balance sufficient levels of performance, security and flexibility, with the need for management simplicity and cost-efficiencies.  One of the key issues for IT teams has been the legacy of multiple, multi-vendor network management tools, which has meant a disproportionately high percentage of IT budgets being allocated to ongoing operations and maintenance, as opposed to innovation in support of business growth.  HPE Intelligent Management Center (IMC) is a unified, single-pane infrastructure management solution that provides visibility across entire networks, enabling complete management of resources, services, and users. 

  • Lower operating expenses and improve TCO with automated features, default alerts and consolidation of tools
  • Improve network availability and reliability through automated configuration management and comprehensive auditing
  • Ensure faster problem recognition and resolution through improved visibility across the network
  • Improve network security with better endpoint defence, control and visibility
  • Reduce network complexities with unified management between wired and wireless, and physical and virtual networks.
