The Open Disruptive Decade
According to IDC, by 2018 20% of companies in EMEA will have an Open Source / OpenStack-first strategy, with new applications being driven by DevOps. Truly, a leading indicator of the open revolution that is gathering momentum across IT and networking both inside and outside of the Data Center.
The reasons are clear: Open means freedom and choice, translating into faster, better, greater. Faster roll-out of new applications and services. Better use of your IT resources and external partners. And greater flexibility to run applications in different compute environments. All delivered across a network that is open by default, removing the risk of perpetual vendor lock-in.
If you are responsible for IT or networking infrastructure decisions in your company’s Private, Public or Hybrid Data Center or Cloud environment, you should not miss this presentation.
