Software Defined Networking Challenges
Software Defined Networking (SDN), the cloud and ‘new model’ service providers
The ability to gain access to new services and capabilities in an instant, and reap the benefits they promise almost immediately is shaping new expectations of technology amongst business executives and line-of-business leadership.
The ‘get it and use it now’ attitude is affecting everything from procurement and provisioning to the overall technology experience. At the same time, the ‘cloud’ is presenting compelling opportunities for line-of-business executives to identify and procure software and infrastructure solutions without the need to engage with the CIO or the IT department. As a result, IT operations have to compete with ‘new model’ service providers that don’t carry the burden of managing legacy IT infrastructure and investments.Software Defined Networking solutions
