By Gladys Alegre-Kimura, Global Product Marketing Manager, HP Networking

If you’re a network or IT administrator, you know the problems: You’re dealing with a growing wave of enterprise video content, and your network is struggling to keep pace with exponential traffic increases and the shift toward mobile access. You’re trying to address the escalating demands of the virtualized and cloud-ready data center. And you’ve seen how difficult—make that nearly impossible—it is for network IT to secure and orchestrate services in the virtual cloud and the virtualized workplace.

At the same time, your customers’ expectations are higher. Today’s enterprise users demand constant and immediate connectivity across wired and wireless links. They want instant-on access to business applications from their fixed and mobile workstations. Users expect to switch seamlessly and transparently from traditional IT to private and public clouds and back.

Keeping pace with these requirements is a tall order for the IT manager—one made no easier by “swivel chair management,” which results from dependence on the mismatched management tools provided by network vendors. As a result, many organizations find that IT staff time and budget is overwhelmingly devoted to ongoing operations and maintenance instead of developing new initiatives and projects or expanding capacity to support business growth. In fact, more than 70 percent of any IT budget is spent just keeping the lights on, leaving less than 30 percent to deliver business-critical innovation.

Solving such seemingly intractable problems calls for a new type of network management, one that combines a capability for single-pane-of-glass multivendor management with automated virtual machine orchestration and automatic synchronization of network connectivity information. At HP, we call this FlexManagement. And it’s available today in the HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC).
