Given the constant pace of change in infrastructures, IT Operations must be forever on their toes when it comes to ensuring that the best management tools, technologies, and practices are being followed. Nowhere is this more true than in the network layer, given that networks are becoming increasingly critical as the means of delivering the applications and services upon which IT end users, and the businesses and organizations they drive, so heavily depend. The time has never been better for evaluating current management strategies and considering the efficiency and effectiveness improvements possible through integrated, multi-function, multi-vendor network management solutions. This whitepaper examines seven core network management requirements deserving of special attention in today's operating environments, and evaluates how one multi-vendor, multi-function integrated management solution, HP's Intelligent Management Center, measures up.
