SDN, Re-Architecting Enterprise Networks

We have stepped into the next digital era. This is an exciting process, as digital enterprises use ‘bits’ to measure the operation and management of their core businesses, including decision support, marketing and analysis, customer relations, procurement, supply chain, and human resources. Every service generates ‘data’ that in turn is measured with still more data. Enterprises expect that the end effect of digitization is business growth. As enterprises digitally transform, CIOs must explore their own transformational processes and integrate ICT into every service they provide. How should network architecture ― the foundation of enterprise ICT ― be transformed? How can the network be a core pillar of digitalization rather than a bottleneck? The presence and gradual deployment of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is the inevitable choice of network architecture transformation.
