How DevOps and Accelerated Application Delivery Impact Enterprise Networks
This IDC Market Perspective analyzes the critical role enterprise networks play in enabling the shift to hyper-agile apps and how networks are becoming more virtualized and application-like themselves, driving a need for new skills within the network industry.
"As networks become software-defined, the network itself becomes an application, creating a war for developer talent across the networking industry. In addition, there are fears that increasingly automated networks could disintermediate network life-cycle services partners. Vendors in Europe need to bring their partners with them on their transformation journey, otherwise they risk being disrupted by new hardware- and vendor-agnostic network solution providers."
