Software-Defined Networking: Adoption Update

How Does SDN Tie In with Hyper-Convergence?

by Kurt Hildebrand | 09.25.15

As you might imagine, software-defined networking (SDN) eliminates a lot of the routine maintenance and support that ties up IT resources. This gives an enterprise the opportunity to better think strategically, become more flexible and agile, and better leverage cloud applications and a converged infrastructure. Where are we with adoption? And what role is SDN playing in the hyper-converged trend? What do IT leaders need to know about this?

Software Defined Networking: Look Beyond the Hype

SDN has grown. Here’s why you should be paying attention.

by Tim Allen | 07.01.15

Less than a year ago, Gartner characterized the mainstream market action surrounding software-defined networking (SDN) as “mostly just tire-kicking.” That assessment of the market, however, is fast becoming old news. IDC has forecast  that the “worldwide SDN market for the enterprise and cloud service provider segments will grow from $960 million in 2014 to over $8 billion by 2018.”

The Top 3 Benefits of VIP Licensing

by Josh Sutelman | 08.26.13

In June 2013, Adobe reinvented itself by creating a new licensing model, the Value Incentive Program (VIP), which is a brand new way for Adobe to update its industry-leading lineup of software.

No One Is Immune to Microsoft's Software Audits

How Prepared Is Your Organization?

by James Nagurney | 07.07.14

Recently, I was struck by a survey that I found on an industry website. A link to the full article is below, but here’s the gist: Microsoft is auditing its customers at a brisk pace, and no company is immune. All software vendors retain the rights to audit their clients, and we feel that it is fair to expect these periodic compliance checks. But Microsoft is auditing customers at a 2 to 1 rate over other vendors like Adobe, IBM, and Oracle—58% of executives surveyed said they have been audited by Microsoft in the last 12 months*. Five years ago, these types of audits were relatively rare and only encountered under specific situations. Today Microsoft absolutely does not discriminatethere need be no compelling event or “areas of concern” to trigger a compliance check on your Microsoft software. Most often we are seeing Microsoft approach customers via email to conduct a self-audit, but we also see the more invasive, third-party types of audit that will send a shiver down any CIO’s spine. The different kinds of audits that are being imposed really do run the gamut.
