Intelligent Management Aggregation Networks (iMAN) from vendors like Anue, APCON, Gigamon, NetOptics, and VSS Monitoring remain niche products for large enterprises and service providers with big complex networks. ESG Research forecasts a market transition in progress however. As enterprise organizations embrace data center consolidation, server virtualization, web applications, consumer devices, and mobility, they will need more comprehensive network visibility to help them address new network management, operations, and security requirements. This in turn will drive iMAN into the networking market mainstream.
