Automation and Service Agility
The agility and speed would be very helpful and a advantage for NFV when you are starting or adding something.new to an addition. Automation will still have it's ups and downs but we'll see how it all turns out.

Re: Automation and Service Agility
Networks are becoming so complex that automation can really help to navigate the pitfalls in some system design. I've always been an advocate for software-based networking, and we're getting closer to that reality for sure.

I think that on the scale of today's networks, automation becomes essential. Without it, we'd have a lot more down time.

Ariella,

Even more importantly, the machines can analyze the problem, pick an optimal solution, implement it, and verify that it is working in less time than it would take for  human to read a document (even on screen) explaining what the problem is.

@JohnBarnes, absolutely that's the real game-changing effect of automation: the ability to act on data in real-time.

@John.B:

That is very true. Here is my guess, i am not a robo pro though. All this goes well till there is an issue with Robo or in the automation process. Not sure what are the troubleshooting techniques, but with human elements that becomes much easier.

Re: Automation and Service Agility
And no one is ready to accept any downtime. If you think back, folks use to run mainframe reports and wait a day to receive reports before they perform next step in the process. That is totally unimaginable now, but i personally witnessed business users following that process in on eof the reputed firms in NYC in late 90's - early 2000's.

@John. B:

Ofcourse, no one is ready to accept downtime. What i was trying to say is we are ok to be convinced to have downtime willingly as per plan, if needed to be. I don't think i can convince my teenager for the same no matter what.

I'm starting to think that people are addicted to speed!

If they can't have it now, they don't seem to ever want it.

Absolutely, this is just addiction and obsession. As you said these younger folks act like 'Now or Never'. And interestingly enough their interests chnage way too fast and in the wait they may even choose to find something else.

Speed is becoming priority especially with younger genetations. They just can't wait for anything. I have a teenager who gets resless to wait even seconds in some cases.

Re: Automation and Service Agility
Ofcourse it is very clear that there is a need from consumer and hence companies are trying to build new things at jet speed to cope up. But at times tere has to be a point to take a step back and reevaluate to make sure of the quality occassionally. That would ensure a quality product into the market.

Exactly! There is a need for things to be made and sent out fast. But like you said, at some point they need to take a step back and make sure the quality is up to par.

Yup, that is what is required. But not happening in reality all the time. Those companies that are just running for temporary results are the ones that are taking a toll. Hope companies are learning to follow better process.

Re: Automation and Service Agility
And in the end itís just hurting business. People are going to become tired of buyers bf things for bad quality and it will become something that companies have to take seriously.
