"Today’s Transformation will lead to Tomorrow’s Success"
The IT industry is experiencing rapid change due to the rise of clouds and mobile apps and the needs of business to embark on digital transformation. Networking & Security play a central role in this transformation, as modern applications are highly distributed and require a rich set of networking and security services to function correctly, efficiently and securely. Applications are increasingly heterogeneous, spanning public and private clouds and encompassing both traditional and modern environments (e.g., containers).
We will discuss current and future networking & security capabilities that may be employed to tackle this complex environment, including networking virtualization and cross cloud services. We’ll also discuss the important people and process issues that must be addressed as modern approaches to the networking and security are deployed.
