At the heart of FlexManagement is the Intelligent Management Center (IMC). IMC is intended to be a 'single pane of glass' view for a network.
The unified view that is provided in a single tool is something that HP Networking believes is a key differentiator in the market. HP Networking executives use IMC as a proof point of why they are better than arc-rival Cisco.
"IMC is unique in that it provides management across all of the building blocks of FlexNetwork and allows the IT manager to control all the devices that are on the network," Kash Shaikh, director of Marketing, HP Networking said when the platform was first launched in 2011.
