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

It seems like all we talk about these days is Office 365, Adobe Creative Cloud, SaaS this, and subscription that. The software industry is moving towards subscription based licensing. I attended a great indie conference for software publishers years ago. Someone there did an interesting study that showed the vast majority of subscription-based models were designed with revenue streams in mind rather than customer satisfaction. He tied those findings to another study showing very low customer satisfaction with subscription-based models (surprise!). Things have greatly improved since then, but some of the truths of that old study remain. Subscription-based licensing is different, and it requires new thinking about the consumption of software and the management of a software estate.

by Rick Sabarese | 02.21.17

If you’re into all things IT like we are, then I’m sure you’re aware that Microsoft is set to end support for Windows 7 in 2020. To stay ahead of the game—and to take advantage of new business and security features—now is the time to start looking into migration to Windows 10. To help get a better idea of how IT decision makers view their migration projects, Connection recently partnered with research firm IDG to ask them about their goals and challenges related to Windows 10.
