SDN / NFV may not be new with next-gen telcos and data centers but by 2016 it is certainly going to be the new beast in the DevOps space. It's a multi-million dollar virgin market, so it's not only those traditional OEMs that are in the fray; even the DB companies will be entering this new market. Telcos and data centers want vendor-agnostic network devices and are expected to replace all physical devices, including routers and switches, with software devices. This not only drastically brings down the PCB replacement costs and other maintenance charges but the latest release automation tools and technology of DevOps will do radical changes by reducing the overall current service provisioning time from 4-5 months to a few hours.

How to Build DevOps Competency? - SI/ Consulting firms

I believe 2016 is the "Year of DevOps." Last year it was a "wait and watch" situation but this year companies are actively pursuing a DevOps initiative, so it's a no-brainer for SI and consulting firms to jump onto the bandwagon to build DevOps practice/ competency but How/ What remains the challenge. Companies do practice CI/CD processes and follow agile methodology / microservices, etc., so pure professional service opportunities through technologies like Jenkins, Chef, Puppet, and Maven don't exist. The basic tenants of DevOps shifted from point solutions to enterprise level ob... (more)
