TECH SUPPLIER Oct 2018 - Market Perspective - Doc # LA44397518
Software Defined Everything and NFV
This market perspective aims to provide a summary of the most important SDx trends in Latin America, using an analysis of primary and secondary information sources.
This analysis includes definitions and a description of the main SD-WAN and SD Infrastructure worldwide trends and its impact in Latin America. Finally, this document provides key recommendations for vendors and service providers.
"The large geographical footprint of some countries in Latin America, coupled with the relatively limited availability of MPLS in small cities, will strongly boost the growth of SD-WAN, since it will allow organizations with great geographical dispersion (for example, banks, retail or energy) to have a greater variety of access alternatives for their remote branches, especially those further away." says Diego Anesini, Research Director, Latin America. "Different Software-Defined components could pave the way towards making a Software-defined Datacenter a reality, where companies could act on business decisions in a more flexible, scalable and dynamic way in order to respond to a fast-changing environment and ecosystems. SDI could become a key complement of any agile / design thinking philosophy as it closes the gap towards a real programmable and further automated and self-resilient infrastructure. The supplier that manages to position itself as the key enabler for this infrastructure transformation could certainly have a winning ticket on its hands." says Juan Pablo Seminara, Research Manager, Latin America.
