Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@JoeStanganelli, great points.  The motives will vary.  And there will be a market for those who just want the latest and are afraid of being left behind - they may actually become the mass market - but at least it will advance SD-WAN which is needed for further true transformation.

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@DHagar: On this note, I am far more interested in SD-WAN's potential in elevating us to SONs -- self-organized networks. If a network can one day, on its own, measure and remember traffic demands at certain times and adjust for those proactively ahead of time, that's going to be HUGE.

@Joe:

SON seems to be pretty interesting concept. I believe that could be a potential solution for future.

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
In actuality, I believe that SD-WAN can be driven more by the business user than it will be by the IT experts....

@DHagar:

That's a great point. As a matter of fact this has to be the case for all the initiatives in enterprise. There are many initiatives that are handled by IT alone and business would only come in at the time of delivery. Instead having some kind of engagemnet and ownership by business throughout the life cycle should certainly help bridge the gaps early on.

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@DHagar, @dcawrey:

Agree with you both.

Having a plan in place to deliver incremental solutions is the best approach. In this age and time we can't just wait to roll out one final product and then realize something is off. Instead follow the agiile approach, be vigilent of development around and adjust your path as needed.

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@ms.akkineni This is the problem that some vendors get into trouble with. They promise the world when everyone full well knows that everything is in increments, and everything takes time. I feel that way about SD-WAN these days.

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@JoeStanganelli, now you are talking!  I am actually working on a project here in so. Cal. with multiple transportation agencies and developing RT traffic intelligence.  What you envision would be HUGE.  We are working with IBM and some PhD's to develop a use case with cognitive computing. 

Your vision is both feasible and will produce great value!

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@ms.akkineni, thanks!  Plus, it delivers added value right up front to the data and use of the applications developed.  Now you have people and systems actually working in sync. 

The Artificial Intelligence plus Human Intelligence is the key - in my mind.

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@ms.akkineni, you outline a valuable model for the future.  This is also the essence of the "Fail Fast" concept.  It is more about learning what is needed and what works, than selecting "the answer".

Re: SD-WAN GTT Deal
@dcawrey:

I see valid point in your comments. That makes me think about a company that didn't share any upfront communication with the world and came out like a bang, which was a surprise to the world. And that was from one of south american countries and industry didn't have an eye on it as well. I can't recall the name of teh company unfortunately.

So applying that to present context, such a strategy may sometimes work well. What do you think?
